The NBA has hired two-time NBA champion Malik Rose and veteran NBA front-office member David Booth as vice presidents of basketball operations, the NBA confirmed to The Undefeated. Rose and Booth begin the New York City-based jobs Monday and will report to NBA president Byron Spruell. Among their job responsibilities will be discussing league programs, rules, competitive elements and new initiatives with NBA teams and players. Other job duties include broadening and growing a working relationship with NBA teams under the “respect for the game” rules announced in 2010 that offer players guidelines for permissible reactions to the referees. Moreover, the two African American men will work on all game-focused topics with teams.
“We are excited to be adding two key people with multifaceted skill sets for two key roles at the NBA,” Spruell told The Undefeated. “We believe the NBA and our teams in turn will derive great benefits in drawing on the collective playing, coaching, scouting and front-office experience of Malik and David.” Rose joins the league office following a recent two-year stint as the Detroit Pistons’ assistant general manager. The 13-year NBA veteran was also the general manager of the NBA G League Erie Bayhawks from 2015 to 2018. The Philadelphia native averaged 6.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 813 games while playing for the Charlotte Hornets, San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder from 1996 to 2009, and won NBA championships with the Spurs in 1999 and 2003. The former Drexel University star also earned a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems and a master’s degree in sports management.
The Pistons are in the market for their first general manager since 2018, but it remains to be seen if the role will be filled for the 2020-21 season. Sources told The Athletic that while the team’s focus is on hiring for that job, Detroit could consider hiring multiple assistant general managers instead. The timing of the hires and what roles will be filled will be dependent upon how the search pans out, per a source. Assistant GM Malik Rose left the team earlier this week for a role with the NBA.
