Wolves finalize hire of Sachin Gupta, EVP of basketball ops

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves have named Sachin Gupta their executive vice president of basketball operations, continuing the front office makeover under new president Gersson Rosas.

Gupta, whose hire was finalized on Tuesday, was the assistant general manager last season for Detroit. Before that, he was with Houston for a year as a special adviser while Rosas worked there under general manager Daryl Morey. Gupta previously worked with the Rockets in their analytics department, assisting with strategy and salary cap management.

Gupta, who has degrees from MIT and Stanford, first made a name for himself at ESPN. There, he developed the NBA Trade Machine for the network's website that allows users to play general manager and see which players could theoretically be swapped from which teams under the league's complex salary cap rules. Gupta also worked for Philadelphia for three years.
