The Clippers made it official Monday, announcing the hiring of Gerald Madkins as the team’s director of basketball operations.
The Clippers also announced three other front-office personnel moves.
They hired Eric Miller to be the director of basketball administration, Fabrizio Besnati returns for his eighth season as the director of international scouting and Jason Piombetti was promoted to the position of director of scouting.
Madkins, a former UCLA Bruins player and assistant coach, spent the last two seasons as the vice president of player personnel for the New Orleans Hornets.
He will report directly to Gary Sacks, the Clippers’ newly appointed vice president of basketball operations.
“Gerald is a good guy,” Sacks said. “He’s an expert talent evaluator. He knows what he’s doing. He’s great for us.”
