David Levy is out as the CEO of the Brooklyn Nets less than two months after being hired by new team owner Joe Tsai.
The Nets announced Tuesday that Levy, a former president at Turner Broadcasting, and the organization “mutually agreed to part ways.”
Oliver Weisberg has been named interim CEO.
“As we enter an exciting next chapter of our organization, it’s important that ownership and management are completely aligned on our go forward plan,” Weisberg said in a statement. “We are proud of the culture of the Brooklyn Nets under the leadership of General Manager Sean Marks and Head Coach Kenny Atkinson, and we look forward to continue bringing the best experience to our fans.”
Levy was hired by the Nets on Sept. 18, the same day Tsai completed his purchase of the franchise and Barclays Center.
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.

Levy worked closely with the NBA while at Turner and was tasked with overseeing all business, revenue, strategy and operations for the Nets.
