Instructor: S. Sanders

Analyzing the Basketball Organization will address business and managerial aspects of professional basketball organizations. Organizational structure and primary functions of management within professional basketball leagues and teams. The WNBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement and similar documents of professional basketball leagues throughout the world. We will compare leagues in terms of organizational structure, market valuation, and competitive balance and study the rules governing player, player trades, free agency, and salary caps, as well as the importance of the NBA’s U.S. anti-trust exemption to its supremacy among professional basketball leagues. Designed primarily to train sport management and sport analytics majors but may also appeal management, finance or economics students. Pre-law students would also benefit from the Collective Bargaining Agreement treatment within the course. Course texts will be chosen such that students without an extensive background in sport management can supplement their readings and achieve success in the class.
