Nets players participated in a business and basketball mentorship program Tuesday, October 10, part of an organization effort to take advantage of New York’s preeminence as a world financial and economic center.
The meetings were an opportunity for the team to learn about various careers and prepare for life after basketball.
The players were joined by Nets front office executives as they received business advice from top executives across a variety of business and nonprofit sectors, including companies like American Express, Evercore, RBC Capital, and Children’s Aid Society.
Meetings were scheduled between the players and major alumni of their alma maters, including Harvard (Jeremy Lin), Ohio State (D’Angelo Russell), Michigan (Caris LeVert), Cincinnati (Sean Kilpatrick), and Texas (Jarrett Allen).
Among the topics discussed were asset management and involvement in the community, according to the Nets.
