Good Sports: TIMBERWOLVES HIRE SACHIN GUPTA

The NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves have hired Sachin Gupta as the team’s executive vice president of basketball operations. A graduate of MIT, Gupta is known for his expertise in basketball analytics.

He began his career at ESPN where he helped foster basketball’s analytical movement with the advent of advanced NBA metrics. He also developed the popular NBA Trade Machine.

He has worked for three other NBA teams: the Houston Rockets, Philadelphia 76ers, and Detroit Pistons. He began his NBA career in 2006 with the Rockets, laying the foundation for the team’s analytics department while assisting with strategy and salary cap management.

“Sachin is an extremely talented basketball mind who brings a diverse and unique background to our staff,” said Gersson Rosas, president of basketball operations for the Timberwolves.
