The Mad Ants announced today that assistant coach Sebastian Pruiti recently earned a "call-up" when he accepted a job with the Oklahoma City Thunder as Video Analyst/Personnel.
Sebastian is the third Mad Ants coach to make the jump to the NBA following Mike Sanders, who currently coaches for the Utah Jazz, and Vitaly Potapenko, who spent one season with the Indiana Pacers.
"Sebastian was a great asset for the Mad Ants last year," said Mad Ants President Jeff Potter in a news release. "His basketball acumen is invaluable to a coaching staff and he will be missed, but we couldn't be more excited about his opportunity with Oklahoma City."
After earning his undergrad degrees in Business Administration and Finance from The College of New Jersey, Pruiti went on to earn his MBA in Sport Management from Seton Hall University. Sebastian founded the blogs, NBA Playbook and Nets Are Scorching, and has been a regular contributor to ESPN's Grantland.com.
