Rod Thorn drafted Michael Jordan with the Bulls, built the Nets teams that reached back-to-back NBA Finals, ran the 76ers and served for years in the league office. He also played eight seasons in the NBA and even served as interim coach of Chicago.
Now, he’s getting a major honor.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Thorn is well-liked around the league and has worked in it for decades. That’s a sure ticket to the Basketball Hall of Fame as at least a contributor.
