NBA free agency 2022 – Which front office should you run? Take our quiz!

When you step into an NBA front office in 2022, you don’t have to go far before you spot a treatise on management theory resting on a bookshelf. Concepts such as organizational culture and wealth management have prevailed. League executives put a lot of thought into creating an identity for their basketball operations stores.

The NBA may still be an extraordinary business, where winners and losers are decided on a literal playing field, but it has never been like other multi-billion dollar companies. If you pinch yourself tight enough, the cell farm in this NBA front office might as well be in Silicon Valley if you got rid of the thundersticks and bobbleheads that rest on the desks.

The NBA’s 30 front offices are as diverse in style as the teams on the field. Some Lead Execs enjoy playing set pieces on a highly structured offense, while others prefer to read and react.

The Oklahoma City Thunder front office will be poring over small details that would never occur to the decades-thinking Boston Celtics. The Los Angeles Lakers value tradition, while the Phoenix Suns explicitly distrust it. Decisions big and small are made high up in the Miami Heat’s organizational hierarchy, but in Golden State consensus is built in a more collaborative process (although owner Joe Lacob is still boss).

Most fans at some point imagine themselves fulfilling the job of general manager of their favorite team. This exercise usually begins and ends with who they would have drafted in the first round last week or what deal they would have executed in ESPN’s Trade Machine.

But the high-profile deals that dominate the chatter are just a small part of the portfolio. The job isn’t swashbuckler or dealmaker — it’s basketball CEO. Anyone interested in the job must be able to answer the following questions: What kind of people do you value in an organization? Aside from player salaries, what do you want to spend your limited budget on? How much contradiction can you honestly take? What’s the best way to deal with an unlucky Superstar or temperamental owner? How do you assess the risk? When it comes to real make-or-break-the-franchise decisions, how do you gather the information to make the call? Or is information overrated if you trust your gut feeling?

That’s where you come in! Take our quiz while you wait – or doomscroll – for that next big signing or deal. We did the work for you and asked the league for six teams with different management styles and principles: the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors.
