It was announced Monday that Dan Reed, the NBA Development League President, was resigning and taking a job at Facebook. From the press release:
Reed, who began his NBA tenure as senior manager of team marketing and business operations in 2004, was elevated to his current post in 2007.
“Dan’s exceptional business acumen and tireless work ethic have lifted the NBA Development League to new heights,” said Tatum. “We thank Dan for his contributions to the NBA and look forward to working with him in his new role.”
Under Reed’s direction, the NBA D-League has made significant strides towards its development goals for the NBA, with 33 percent of NBA players and more than 50 percent of NBA referees boasting NBA D-League experience at the end of the 2013-14 NBA season. Seventeen NBA teams have single-affiliate relationships with their NBA D-League teams, up from one in 2007.
