Continuing their revitalization of the front office, the Nets have hired Milton Lee as director of basketball operations, responsible for overseeing the Nets statistical and analytical efforts, as well as assist Billy King and Bobby Marks on player personnel matters.
Lee, a former director of basketball operations at New York Athletic Club and personal trainer for NBA players, has had a long history with New York and NBA hoops.
He personally worked as a skills coach with several NBA players, including current Net, Troy Murphy. Lee served as an assistant coach for the Clippers summer league team in 2008 and 2009, and has been a consultant to the NBA at the past five Pre-Draft Combines.
Earlier in his career, Lee worked as a proprietary trader on Wall Street for ING Barings and SAC Capital. Lee interned for the NBA at three consecutive Olympic Games, including 1992, for the original "Dream Team." Lee also served as an early consultant to Onexim Group after Mikhail Prokhorov agreed to buy the team.
