Our partners, Sports Management Worldwide, will be conducting their annual career conference at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas on July 19th and 20th. You can view the conference flyer here. The conference includes sessions with basketball industry leaders such as Mark Warkentien (New York Knicks, Director of Player Personnel), Brian Hagen (Chicago Bulls, Assistant GM), Jim Paxson (Chicago Bulls, Director of Basketball Operations) as well as a host of basketball people involved in the NBA as well as those working in scouting, as agents, or in writing and broadcasting.
Sports Management Worldwide offers training courses in Basketball General Manager and Scouting as well in the Agent-Advisor area. This is a great way to introduce yourself to the various career paths available in the basketball industry. NetScouts Basketball offers an OJT Scout Training program to graduates of the SMWW GM & Scouting course. It’s a great way to get into the industry.
Attendees will also receive a ticket to the July 20th session of the NBA Summer League, are invited to a welcome reception on the evening of July 19th, a networking lunch on July 20th as well as all the conference sessions.
