Tiger Fighting，10月22日。最近，“体育”的Ben Standig和Mike Vorkunov对20位匿名经纪人进行了问卷调查，涉及许多主题。
When it comes to Thunder general manager Sam Presti, the agent has a very high evaluation of him.
"I think the best general manager in the league is Presti. He has cut the team's salary drastically. Even though I am an agent, I have to get contracts for the players. His clever way of cutting expenses is incredible."
"In terms of IQ, he is the most minded general manager of the league, which is based entirely on their operations. And he is also the best in terms of emotional intelligence, because they know that public relations are as important as team competitiveness."
"I might have to say that he is the best general manager in the league. I think he has matured and he has improved over time. The smart ones are those who have been improving. I would say that he is really mature. Most of the time. You can say several heroes for the success of the team. You might say Pat Riley, but there are also excellent people like Angie. And when it comes to the Thunder, you only think of Presti."
In the offseason last year, the Thunder used Paul George and Russell Westbrook as the main trading partners in exchange for Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari, and Shay Gilges-Alexander, which significantly reduced their total salary. At the same time, he received multiple future first-round signings, and achieved the best regular season record after 2016 this year, and entered the playoffs with fifth place in the Western Conference.
