‘I will miss being part of the NBA but remain a fan and will follow the continued growth of the league from afar,” he said.

On Levy’s contribution to the NBA, Sheikh, said: “I’m grateful to have had the privilege to work directly with Scott and serve as a member of his leadership team.”

“The NBA experienced remarkable growth and success in Asia-Pacific under Scott’s stewardship, and I’m incredibly excited and humbled by the opportunity to build on the foundation he established, while also helping to chart new paths for the NBA in the region,” he said.

Over the last 12-yearS, Levy has grown the NBA’s business and the game of basketball by expanding the league’s media and marketing business, and retail licensing partnerships in the region.
