Sam Presti to speak at Jim Thorpe Association
Sam Presti, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Oklahoma City Thunder recently completed his fifth season after being named the 11th General Manager in club history on June 7, 2007.
During his five seasons with the Thunder, Presti has worked diligently to assemble the building blocks for long-term success both on and off the court. Presti’s consistent focus has been to utilize the NBA Draft to establish the foundation for sustained success on the floor and in the community.
This past season, Presti and his staff oversaw the Thunder’s 47-win season as Oklahoma City claimed a second consecutive Northwest Division Championship and reached the NBA Finals. This occurred on the heels of the 2010-11 season, when the Thunder become the youngest team in the last quarter century to reach the NBA’s Western Conference Finals.
Presti was named NBA Executive of the Year by The Sporting News at the conclusion of the 2009-2010 after the Thunder experienced one of the largest turnarounds in NBA history and captured the franchise’s first playoff berth in Oklahoma City. This was a year after only winning 23 games.
