Well, who knows if this rumor is true or not, but we are talking about the creator of the NBA Trade Machine, Sachin Gupta, here.
Definitely a name to watch here. Worked with Rosas in Houston for multiple years. Knows analytics and the salary cap well. Currently the Pistons ass’t GM. #Twolves #AllEyesNorth https://t.co/BshII2GruE— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) May 22, 2019
If you’re not familiar with “PA” in this context, that stands for Paul Allen, who has a radio show on KFAN 100.3 from 9 to noon every day. He says the Wolves are going after the current Assistant GM of the Detroit Pistons, a role that he accepted last season after being a special adviser to Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey and previously working under Sam Hinkie in Philadelphia.
This fits into the Big, If True category, though not in the sarcastic manner often used on Twitter. I’m being dead serious, this would be significant news given what I just read about Gupta (linked below).
He worked with Rosas in Houston! He was a main component in #TrustTheProcess with Sam Hinkie in Philadelphia, and is said to be the Young King of finding loopholes, which the Wolves certainly need to find given their cap sheet.
Overall he is one of the brightest minds in analytics and salary cap management in the league, and would be a valuable addition to the Wolves front office. His background and NBA journey are incredibly appealing.
Keep your fingers crossed.
