SYMPHONY NO. 2
Leveraging Data with the Minnesota Timberwolves by John Sears
VP of Basketball Analytics ∙ Minnesota Timberwolves
Basketball has rapidly become a data-driven sport. From the impact of Steph Curry on the prevalence of the 3-pointer and the floor spacing teams have deployed as the game changes to managing enormous quantities of data, John gets into the ways NBA franchises are now looking at data.
The Timberwolves also recently engaged in an enormous trade for All-Star Rudy Gobert that has generated a great deal of debate about how teams can and should use their resources to alter their rosters. John gives us a sneak peek into the Timberwolves decision to pursue the star.
