Ken Catanella Rumors

Catanella is a numbers whiz who worked as a graduate assistant for the Duke men’s basketball team while pursuing his MBA. He played at Amherst College and professionally for the Cologne 99ers, and was the general manager for that franchise in Germany. Catanella also has worked for the NBA as a salarycap and analytics expert, and he’s worked on Wall Street. He was an assistant general manager for the Detroit Pistons before joining the Kings. “My history in the game has been (across) the basketball spectrum,” Catanella said. “My education happens to be in the CBA and analytics, and that’s actually what I bring to an organization. So I’m very much looking forward to working with Vlade, whose basketball credentials speak for themselves.”
