The transformation of the Nuggets' front office continued Saturday when Arturas Karnisovas accepted a position to work under new general manager Tim Connelly, Yahoo Sports reported.

After joining the Houston Rockets as an international scout in 2008, Karnisovas, 42, had been promoted through that organization and most recently held the title of director of scouting.

As a player, Karnisovas had a decorated basketball career. After starring under P.J. Carlesimo at Seton Hall, Karnisovas won two Olympic bronze medals (1992 and 1996) for Lithuania and was selected as FIBA's European player of the year in 1996.
