Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard To Hold NBA Front Office Seminar For Select Fans
Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard is "offering select fans the opportunity to learn what it takes to work in an NBA front office," according to Mike Wells of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR. Pritchard is "hosting a general manager seminar for 15 fans" before tomorrow's game against the Raptors at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Pritchard said, "The idea completely came from Twitter. There are so many people who try to get into this business. This is an opportunity for me to give back and try to give people some direction on how to get into the sports world, especially the NBA." Pritchard said that "more than 1,000 people signed up to take part in the seminar." Fifteen were selected "by random drawing." Pritchard at the one-hour seminar will discuss "how he got into the business and how the salary cap works, and he will provide an inside look at the duties of front-office officials." He said, "I've got a feeling this won't be the last time I do this" (INDYSTAR.com, 2/6).
