You -- Yes, You -- Can Be The Wolves Stats And CBA Expert

... according to the Star Tribune classifieds:

MGR OF BASKETBALL ADMINISTRATION

Minnesota Timberwolves Basketball Ltd. Partnership (Minneapolis, MN): Serve as primary resource to Basketball Operations' Team w/ respect to NBA's Collective Bargaining Agreement ("CBA"), incl, but not limited to player contract execution & admin. For Salary Cap Management & Administration prep & customize fin'l docs & analysis relative to team player payroll; prep cap-related studies/analysis; prep draft pick summaries. Serve as Free Agency Planner & contract negotiation organizer. Assist in execution of trade calls. Draft & manage staff & vendor contracts. Reqts: Juris Doctor or foreign equiv & 18 months exp in position offered or rel. position & 18 months exp must incl: working w/ NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement in day to day admin of team; utilizing Visual Basic prog'g language; fin'l modeling of players' salaries; tracking basketball performance metrics in person & on film; & interpreting & devising basketball-related analytics. Pls send resume to the Minnesota Timberwolves Basketball Ltd. Partnership at hr@timberwolves.com.

That's a rather broad set of responsibilities, isn't it? Lawyer who knows VB and who can track and create analytics? Feels like this should be two positions -- one to manage the cap, and one to do the analytics. But who am I to spend Papa Glen's money, right?

Incidentally, it's well-known that the Star Tribune classifieds have been the source of many of the NBA's current cap and analytics gurus. If I remember correctly, Sam Presti was a barista at a coffee shop in Uptown until he saw an anonymous ad placed in the Strib by the San Antonio Spurs. The rest is, shall we say, history.

Feel free to apply; Flip Saunders has informed me that there's a 50-50 chance that any applicant will get the job. Being married to a member of the Taylor family is a big plus, too, based on what I've heard.
