Rose, 47, played 13 seasons in the NBA and won two championships with the San Antonio Spurs (1999, 2003).

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to move from NBA basketball operations to this exciting role alongside Shareef and a talented NBA G League staff,” said Rose. “As someone who has benefited greatly from their experience in the NBA G League, I know firsthand its importance to NBA business and see enormous potential for continued growth.”
