𝑆𝑎𝑚𝑒 𝐹𝑎𝑐𝑒, 𝑁𝑒𝑤 𝑃𝑙𝑎𝑐𝑒 Our social media guru @WaelAnk is now pulling double duty as our new Assistant GM! 🙌🙌🙌
Many know Ankouni from his time with NetsGC in season two as its social media coordinator. However, Ankouni’s roots with the 2K League date all the way back to season one, where he assisted Wizards DG in drafting its inaugural roster as a draft consultant. He was also a known figure in the Pro-Am community before the league.
Ankouni brings a ton of experience and expertise to the staff, being extremely well-versed in all facets of NBA 2K as a whole.
“Wael been a great asset,” NetsGC Head Coach and General Manager OGKINGCURT said. “His willingness to go above and beyond to make NetsGC a better organization is unparalleled. I’m truly blessed to have him by my side and this is well deserved.“
Ankouni will play a part in NetsGC’s attempt to make its first-ever playoff appearance this year. The 2019 expansion team came close to making the playoffs in its inaugural campaign, but ultimately fell short.
NetsGC is looking to add three more players to its roster in the upcoming NBA 2K League entry draft, in which it has the 9th, 29th and 50th overall picks. NetsGC currently rosters Wavy, Rando and Shuttles.
