David Levy is stepping down as CEO of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center, less than two months into his tenure with the team, he told Bloomberg in an interview.
“We mutually agreed to part ways,” Levy said in the interview, declining to comment further.
Levy also served as president of J Tsai Sports, the investment and holding vehicle controlled by Nets owner and Alibaba co-founder Joseph Tsai. Levy’s responsibilities included overseeing “all business, revenue, strategy and operations for the franchise and arena,” according to the Sept. 18 announcement of his hiring.

Before joining the Nets and Barclay’s Center, Levy spent 32 years at Turner Broadcasting, serving as president of the media giant for six years.
