ESPN: Nets front office ranks No. 15 in the NBA

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN is releasing their ranks of NBA front offices this week, rolling them out throughout the next few days, ranking each franchise from No. 1 overall down to No. 30, which is where they've placed the New York Knicks.

Your Brooklyn Nets, however, have come in at No. 15 overall, right in the middle of the pack. ESPN based their ranking on three categories -- ownership, team management/general manager, and coaches.


We asked our ESPN Forecast panel to rate every owner, basketball decision-maker and coach from 0 to 10, and we asked the panel to tell us how important each role is.

In particular, we asked the voters to rate each team's front-office management on its guidance and leadership in terms of how it affects overall on-court success, both in the short and long term.

From there, we simply calculated the ratings to determine the best and worst front offices in the NBA.

The Brooklyn Nets have a rating of 5.39, and sit between the two Los Angeles franchises, with the Clippers at No. 14 and the Lakers at No. 16.
