With Adam Silver taking over for David Stern as NBA commissioner on Saturday, Mark Tatum, the league’s vice president of global marketing partnerships, has emerged as the strong leader to become deputy commissioner, league officials told Yahoo Sports.

Tatum, who is African-American, would become one of the highest-ranking minority executives in major professional sports.

Silver had been the NBA’s deputy commissioner, and has targeted Tatum to take over his No. 2 position in the league office, sources said.
