Nets Gaming Crew has hired longtime community member Wael “BeastAnk” Ankouni as its social media coordinator, Ankouni announced yesterday.
Excited to officially announce that I’ve accepted a job offer with @netsgamingcrew as their Social Media Coordinator. I believe @OGKINGCURT and the rest of the staff have put together one of the best teams in the @NBA2KLeague ! Extremely excited for the season
Ankouni worked as a draft analyst for Wizards District Gaming before last season’s entry draft and has been a consistent presence in the community for years.
“It means the world to me,” Ankouni told DIMER. “Ever since this league was announced, I’ve been working nonstop to be in the position I’m in now. I couldn’t be more excited to get to work with the great group of guys we put together yesterday.”
The Nets hosted the NBA 2K League draft at Barclays Center. Led by Head Coach/GM Ivan Curtiss and Assistant of Business Operations Nick Gartrelle, Nets GC filled out its roster with four picks. The team selected Wavy, Shuttles, Lavish, and iiTz Chas with their first-ever entry draft selections. As an expansion team, Nets GC drafted Finals MVP Nate Kahl and Shockey in the 2018 expansion draft.
Ankouni and the Nets will debut the new roster at the Tip-Off Tournament, which begins April 2 at the NBA 2K League studios in Long Island City.
