Miami Heat GM, Andy Elisburg, Graduated from Churchill High School
On the heels of taking a 2-0 series lead over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, we wanted to highlight the man who helped put the team together.
Andy Elisburg is the Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager of the Miami Heat. He’s also from Potomac and graduated from Churchill High School in 1985.
He is part of the original employees of the Heat, joining the franchise in its inaugural 1988 season, and has helped President Pat Riley in the management of all aspects of the Heat’s basketball organization including salary cap administration, talent acquisition, league compliance and the day-to-day business of basketball operations.
Elisburg has won three NBA championships with the Heat and played major roles in the decisions to draft Dwyane Wade, trade for Shaquille O’Neal, put together Miami’s Big Three (LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade), and bring Jimmy Butler on board surrounded by a cast of very talented and young NBA players.
We wish the Potomac native the best of luck as Miami moves closer to competing for another championship.
