Their head of basketball operations is 27 year old Nick Ressler (owners son) who hangs out with Trae outside of the workplace at times and has not ever played or coached basketball or managed anything of significance prior to landing that gig. Their GM is a 34 year old Landry Fields who replaced Travis Schlenk with the qualifications of being a yes-man. Schlenk objected the DJM trade because of the price tag and was supposed to have the final call but Tony Ressler intervened and overruled him. Landry was the most vocal supporter of that trade (along with Trae Young and Nick Ressler).
The oldest person in their basketball braintrust is 41 year old Kyle Korver, and even he has literally no applicable experience or qualifications for his job as the assistant GM. Athletic has done a couple of damning pieces about them and their CEO Steve Koonin has pretty much confirmed most of the stuff in those articles.
