A new president for the Nets, former MSG/NBA executive Abbamondi; arena role unclear

Sportico's Scott Soshnick reported an exclusive 7/22/20, BROOKLYN NETS TO NAME MSG EXEC JOHN ABBAMONDI AS TEAM PRESIDENT.

Actually, John Abbamondi is a former executive vice president of ticketing, suites and hospitality at Madison Square Garden, who left in January after about four years.

Before that, Abbamondi worked as senior vice president of team marketing and business operations at the National Basketball Association, according to Sportico.

NetsDaily noted that the Nets had no official comment "but insiders confirmed the news."

Though Abbamondi is taking some of the duties previously occupied by David Levy, who was CEO of both the arena and team, it's not clear whether he'll also be responsible for running the arena.
