Brian Levy was hired by the Pacers as GM of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Brian Levy is just 31 years old but he’s now tasked with running the basketball division of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA’s Developmental League. Exactly one month ago, the Indiana Pacers finalized a deal to purchase the Mad Ants and thus have a one-to-one affiliation.

For the past five years, Levy was with the Bakersfield Jam, the Phoenix Suns’ affiliate. There, he held a number of titles: video coordinator, director of player personnel, and, for the past three years, assistant GM.

It’ll be real interesting to see how the Pacers utilize the D-League and how they use the Mad Ants as an asset. With so many young players, several guys — like Glenn Robinson III, Rakeem Christmas — will be sent up to Fort Wayne for playing time and development.
