Matt Babcock is the owner and founder of Babcock Hoops. Matt also serves as an NBA draft analyst and is a key contributor to Babcock Hoops’ written content.
Before launching Babcock Hoops, Matt was a certified NBPA and FIBA agent and accumulated 11 years of experience in the sports management industry working for a number of agencies, including his own agency, Babcock Sports. Through his experience as an agent he was exposed to the inner workings of basketball, providing him an array of knowledge about the business behind the game.
Prior to the 2018 NBA draft, Matt served as a contributor for Sports Illustrated and The Crossover. He provided a series of stories outlining the protocols pertaining to the NBA draft process from the perspective of an NBA agent and the players they represent.
Aside from Matt’s experience as an agent and media member, he also brings first-hand experience as a former basketball player and coach. He was a standout player at George Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia and went on to be a member of the basketball teams at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida and the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. He also spent one season as an assistant coach for Virtus Bologna, a professional basketball team in Bologna, Italy.
Along with Matt’s professional experience, he also grew up in a ‘basketball family’. He learned the game from his father, Dave Babcock, Director of Player Personnel for the Milwaukee Bucks and his two uncles, Pete and Rob Babcock, both of whom are former NBA general managers. His two cousins, Chris and Nate Babcock, also hold positions within the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks organizations, respectively.
