Sources: Wizards make Sheppard permanent GM

The Washington Wizards have made Tommy Sheppard their permanent general manger, league sources confirmed to ESPN on Friday.

Sheppard has held the job on an interim basis for the past three and a half months, after his longtime predecessor, Ernie Grunfeld, was fired in early April. Sheppard has been with the organization for close to two decades.

League sources told ESPN that a new conference will take place Monday to officially unveil Sheppard as the team's permanent lead decision-maker in basketball operations.

Since taking over for Grunfeld, Sheppard has made several moves to infuse the organization with youth and future assets. He drafted Gonzaga forward Rui Hachimura with the ninth overall pick in last month's NBA draft, and made three trades that brought in multiple second-round picks -- as well as several young players to begin an overhaul of Washington's roster.

The Washington Post first reported that Sheppard will remain in the job.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski contributed to this report.
