I think of that as analogous to the Bulls. Since Gar Forman was named GM, you've seen less of John Paxson in the media, as he's not the one answering the day to day questions about the team (besides the coach/manager). How the inner workings of those relationships are managed (between owner, President, GM, coach and more), I don't know. I don't think it was necessarily only about creating another buffer between owner and management, but that angle would make sense.
