Joel Litvin Rumors
Ken Berger: NBA president of league operations Joel Litvin is stepping down Sept. 1 after 27 years in league office, NBA announces.
“I think NBA fans understand and appreciate the concept of rebuilding,” says Joel Litvin, the league’s president of basketball operations. “Whether that’s done through the draft, through signing free agents, it’s a process that is not helped when a team has a lot of highly paid players who are either in the middle or approaching the end of their careers. … Go young. Lower your payroll. Draft intelligently. Be smart about your free agent signings and your rookie extensions and hope you can become the Thunder.”
