Indiana Pacers hire Kelly Krauskopf as NBA’s first female assistant GM

The Indiana Pacers are making NBA history.

On Monday, the Pacers announced the hiring of Kelly Krauskopf as the first female assistant general manager in league history. 

"My past experience has shown me that building winning teams and elite level culture is not based on gender – it is based on people and processes. I am excited to join the Pacers as we continue building the best NBA franchise in the business," Krauskopf said via a news release from the Pacers. 

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the hiring.

Krauskopf had been the president and general manager of the Indiana Fever for 17 years before relinquishing her role as GM to coach Pokey Chatman in November 2017.
