DISCLAIMER
SOURCES:
(1) Linkedin profile checks,
(2) Franchise staff directories checks,
(3) Official Twitter account checks,
(4) Google News alerts,
(5) Volunteers who have something to share,
ISSUES:
(1) People don’t necessarily update their Linkedin profiles when they join a team or leave.
(2) They might be working under some department else than ‘basketball operations’.
(3) Teams might work with 3rd party consultants/companies which are not traceable unless mentioned in a PR bulletin.

Now you better understand the circumstances, any help is appreciated for updating the list. OUR EMAIL ADDRESS: info(at)nbastuffer(dot)com
