Mark Tatum will become the NBA’s new Deputy Commissioner and COO starting Feb. 1, the league announced. 

Tatum will be the No. 2 man at the NBA office, right behind Commissioner Adam Silver, who takes over Saturday after David Stern steps down following 30 years on that job.

“Mark Tatum’s appointment as NBA Deputy Commissioner is recognition of the confidence our owners and teams have in his leadership ability and track record of success,” Silver said in a released statement. “As Deputy Commissioner and COO, Mark will use his extensive industry relationships and knowledge of our game to help guide and grow our league.”
