Tony Parker Hopes To Become NBA GM In Retirement

Jun 1, 2016 2:07 PM

Tony Parker is majority owner and president of the ASVEL basketball club in France.

Parker once had to fire a coach and talks to the general manager daily, makes roster decisions, sends encouraging text messages to players and more. 

Parker would prefer to become an NBA general manager when he retires instead of a coach.

“The best thing was to be in the office every day during the (2011 NBA) lockout and see the everyday operations,” Parker told The Undefeated. “I looked at everything. How to manage a team, marketing, ticket sales, sponsors. It was a great learning experience for me. It’s getting me ready to work in an NBA front office.”
