Secret Rich Cho Interview

You have to highlight the text to read it...enjoy. Q&A with Assistant GM Rich Cho Sonics assistant general manager Rich Cho is not a household name even amongst Sonics fans. But general manager Rick Sund says he can’t imagine how other teams survive without a similar person in their organizations. Cho’s job title fails to do justice to the number of duties he has with the Sonics. He is responsible for knowing the ins and outs of the salary cap to help the Sonics best exploit it and is the team’s associate legal counsel in addition to his traditional front office duties. Since starting with the Sonics in 1995 as an intern for Wally Walker while he was attending the Pepperdine University School of Law, Cho has moved up in the front office steadily, most recently being promoted to assistant GM during the summer of 2001. SUPERSONICS.COM caught up with Cho to find out a little more about his duties and his background.
