Sue Bird joins Nuggets’ front office, will continue playing in WNBA


Three-time WNBA champion Sue Bird, introduced Friday as a basketball operations associate for the Denver Nuggets, wasn’t looking to get into NBA management when the team’s president of basketball operations, Tim Connelly, called this fall with what she called the “perfect match” for her goals.

Not long after Bird led the Seattle Storm past the Washington Mystics in the WNBA finals, Connelly reached out to her through a mutual friend — longtime NBA forward Caron Butler, a contemporary of Bird’s at the University of Connecticut who played for Connelly with the Wizards before Connelly’s move to Denver.
