Kevin Pritchard, who local fans will remember remember as the point guard on Larry Brown’s 1988 National Champion Kansas basketball team is back in the NBA, taking the job of Director of Player Personnel for the Indiana Pacers.
Pritchard was recently the General Manager of the Portland Trailblazers from 2007-2010, a time that saw the Trailblazers rebuild and get back to being a threat in the Western Conference.
Pritchard, who is an Indiana native, also has ties to Kansas City through his involvement with the ABA’s Kansas City Knights. He was the head coach and general manager of the team during the 2001 season, which saw the Knights bring home the ABA Title. The Knights eventually folded in 2006.
