Malik Rose Named NBA Vice President of Basketball Operations

Great gig here for the Philadelphia native and Drexel standout.

Via NBA press release:

Rose is an Overbrook alumnus who went on to play for the Dragons from 1992-1996. He was a second round pick of the Charlotte Hornets but wound up playing the bulk of his NBA career with the Spurs, where we won a pair of titles.

Malik didn’t play for his hometown Sixers, but served as a color commentator for NBC Sports Philadelphia alongside Marc Zumoff from 2011 to 2015. That preceded a move to Atlanta, where he joined the Hawks’ front office and worked his way up the NBA ranks to most recently serve as Assistant General Manager of the Detroit Pistons.

  1. I’ve known Malik since he was the first high school freshman that I didn’t cut from the varsity baseball tam at Overbrook HS. He is one of the finest men that I’ve ever known. Wherever he has been, they have been fortunate to have him. Congratulations.

    1. Never did get that pop up slide down 🙂 LOL.
      Still don’t know why you kept me Beauch, but I thank you for giving me the time to learn the game and the confidence to succeed on the diamond and hardwood. You’re the best!!!

      1. I remember exactly why I didn’t cut you, Malik—> It was when I was hitting ground balls to you at first. You screwed up almost every one, but was never discouraged and kept flopping on one after another until I was too tired to keep hitting them to you. You outlasted me. So, I kept you. And you’ve been outlasting everyone ever since. Love, Beauch

  2. My dad is a Drexel alum and had a work study job while in school where he filmed the basketball team’s games. When my brother and I were kids, my dad would take us to Drexel games during the Malik Rose and Bill Herion era. My brother was in a wheelchair so we sat next to the court. During breaks or after the game, Malik would always come say hello to my brother and thank us for coming out. When Drexel won their second NAC championship, Malik gave my brother his conference championship t-shirt. Always a class guy and I couldn’t be happier about his continued success.
