The Oklahoma City Thunder made waves in the NBA when it was reported that the front office signed Philadelphia 76ers executive Vince Rozman as the scouting department as VP of Identification and Intelligence.

Rozman spent 16 years with the 76ers and worked his way up from intern to assistant general manager. Rozman is a versatile front office member as he specializes in scouting, analytics, strategy and a salary cap guru.

On Twitter, former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie spoke glowingly about Rozman and said that he’s going to be a future general manager one day.

“Vince Rozman is incredible. He’s also a hidden gem because he deflects credit so graciously,” said Hinkie. “He’s great with people, at evaluating talent, at systems, as a communication. The Thunder made a brilliant hire. At some point soon someone really smart is going to hand him the keys.”

Rozman worked under Hinkie from 2013 to 2016, where he famously was the orchestrator of “The Process” Sixers, who were a tanking team for multiple season.
