Denver, CO (Sports Network) - The Denver Nuggets welcomed Tim Connelly to the fold, naming him the club's executive vice president of basketball operations on Monday.

According to several publications, the title includes responsibilities of general manager, a position the Nuggets needed to fill since the departure of Masai Ujiri to take the GM position with the Toronto Raptors.

"We are extremely excited to have Tim join the Denver Nuggets organization," said team owner Josh Kroenke. "He comes from a great basketball background, possesses an incredibly strong work ethic and is a wonderful person. His passion and energy for the game of basketball are contagious and I am confident that he will be a great fit with us in Denver."

The 36-year-old Connelly had been the assistant general manager for the New Orleans franchise since August 2010, after being hired away from the Washington Wizards, where he spent 10 seasons and worked his way up to director of player personnel.

"I want to thank the Kroenke family for this incredible opportunity and for putting their faith in me to help lead the Nuggets to new heights," Connelly said. "I am also very grateful to the Pelicans organization and want to thank them for preparing me for this next chapter in my career. I am looking forward to building on the strong foundation that has already been established in Denver."
