NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Hornets have reportedly found their next general manager.

The Times-Picayune reported late Tuesday night that the Hornets are expected to name San Antonio Spurs vice president of basketball operations Dell Demps to the post on Wednesday. The 40-year-old Demps will replace Jeff Bower after the latter and the organization agreed to part ways last week.

Demps has been in the Spurs' front office the past five years.

He was briefly a teammate of new Hornets head coach Monty Williams with the Spurs during the 1995-96 season.
