USA Basketball Hires BJ Domingo as Men’s National Team Assistant Director

  • Date:
    Jan 28, 2021

Bringing with him experience working in the NBA, elite youth basketball and in sports management, Adebayo “BJ” Domingo today was announced as the USA Basketball Men’s National Team assistant director. He will begin his new position on Feb. 1, 2021.

Domingo replaces Samson Kayode, who joined the San Antonio Spurs as director of player evaluation and assistant general manager for the G-League Austin Spurs.

“We are excited to welcome BJ to the USA Basketball staff,” said USA Basketball CEO Jim Tooley. “His previous experiences will serve him well as he works to continue the tremendous success of the USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Team program and as he supports all aspects of USA Basketball men’s national teams in their preparations and competitions.”

Domingo will assist the USA Basketball Men’s National Team in all facets, and his primary focus will be on the USA Basketball Men's Junior National Team program. He will coordinate the participation of athletes and staff for the men's junior team minicamps and international competitions, as well as assist in the implementation of the health and wellness and life skills components of the men’s JNT program.

“USA Basketball is the world-class standard that all others strive for in the sport. The opportunity to join and contribute to upholding the excellence of USA Basketball is both humbling and a thrill,” Domingo said. “I am excited to learn from people that have influenced and maintained the exceptional reputation and standards of USA Basketball.

“I will strive to use my experiences and lessons to best create an environment that allows the junior national team athletes to efficiently strive towards their potential as individuals playing a team game and young men navigating the complex culture that comes with being an elite athlete in today’s world.”

Domingo earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from San Jose State University in May 2013, and most recently he worked in the Milwaukee Bucks front office as a scout, a position he began in 2017 and held until being hired at USA Basketball.

Domingo also served as a basketball operations associate from 2015-17 and as a player relations intern in 2014-2015 for the Bucks, and he was a video intern for the Golden State Warriors in 2013-2014.

He was a HallPass Media staff member coordinating operations for Adidas Nations for five summers (2011-2015); an intern for the NBA Summer League from 2008-2015; an attraction manager for the NBA All-Star Weekend in 2011 in Los Angeles; and an administrative assistant for Warren LeGarie Sports Management in the summer of 2008.
