The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday they have named Dan Tolzman as the club’s director of scouting and Teresa Resch as director of basketball operations.
“I am excited to welcome Dan and Teresa to our staff,” said Raptors President and General Manager, Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri. “Both possess previous experience that will prove valuable to their positions and our organization.”
Tolzman will oversee all aspects of the team’s scouting department, including college and professional scouting, talent assessment and related data management. He also will provide input on personnel and roster decisions.
Tolzman was a member of Ujiri’s staff in Denver, serving as scouting coordinator since 2011. He originally joined the Nuggets organization as a media relations intern in 2004 and was promoted to media relations manager in 2009.
Resch will serve as the liaison between basketball and team business operations. She also will assist in off-court player development projects.
Resch returns to the NBA, having spent four years at the NBA League Office from December 2006 – May 2011. While at the NBA, Resch assisted the international basketball operations department in operating Basketball without Borders Camps in four different continents and was instrumental in the establishment of the first camp to feature women campers.
In her initial role in the NBA domestic basketball operations department, Resch oversaw league roster management and operations of league sponsored events NBA All-Star Weekend, NBA Draft and NBA Draft Combine.
