The Brooklyn Nets and CEO David Levy have agreed to part ways. Levy had less than two months at the CEO position before the news broke.
The Nets appointed him to the position after Joe Tsai took over governership of the team. Levy was previously the president of WarnerMedia before accepting the job with Brooklyn.
Replacing Levy will be Joe Weisberg, who was previously the alternate governor of the organization. He has only been appointed in an interim capacity, meaning the search for a new CEO may have just begun.
Official reports state that Levy is stepping down from the position. No information is available at this time as to whether or not he will remain with the team in a different role. The announcement came on Tuesday, as Weisberg made a statement thanking Levy for his service to the team.
Joe Tsai also tweeted out a thanks and his support for Levy in the future.
David Levy is a respected media executive and a friend. Truly appreciate his efforts in the past few months. I wish him well in his next endeavors.

Brooklyn acquired superstars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in the offseason, looking to contend for a title as soon as possible. After an Achilles injury suffered by Durant in the 2019 NBA Finals, however, they will have to wait until next year to see the duo on the court together.
The Nets are currently 4-5 on the 2019 season. Their next game comes Tuesday night in Salt Lake City against the 7-3 Utah Jazz.
