The Los Angeles Clippers are promoting Trent Redden to general manager and Mark Hughes to Senior VP/Assistant GM. The promotions come in the wake of former GM Michael Winger’s departure from the Washington Wizards’ presidency.

Both Redden and Hughes had been assistant GMs and will continue to report to President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank.

Redden has been a lead strategist and talent evaluator and Hughes’ leadership and scouting have been big reasons why the Clippers have worked to keep both despite outside offers for promotions through the years.
