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.
