The First Latinx President in the NBA
Gersson Rosas is a native of Bogota, Colombia. He is also the President of Basketball Operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and is the only Latinx person to hold that position in the NBA. His love of basketball has taken him from Colombia, to Houston, to Venezuela, and back to Houston again before now landing in Minnesota.
Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated sat down with Gersson to talk about his journey and his impact on other Latinx who work with or play in the NBA.
The interview, occurred just before his hiring at Minnesota, when he was still VP of Basketball Operations for the Houston Rockets.
