Matt Babcock is a co-owner of Pro Insight. Babcock and fellow co-owner, Matt McKay, Jr., are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company.

 

In addition to his role with Pro Insight, Babcock is the owner and founder of Babcock Hoops, a sports media company covering basketball with an emphasis on the NBA draft and the business behind the game. 

 

Babcock was previously a certified NBPA and FIBA agent and accumulated 11 years of experience in the sports management industry working for a number of agencies, including his own agency, Babcock Sports. Through his experience as an agent he was exposed to the inner workings of basketball, providing him an array of knowledge about the business. Babcock has worked with many professional basketball players ranging from NBA superstars to EuroLeague players to young prospects looking to build careers internationally. Babcock has negotiated millions of dollars worth of contracts. In 2015, he negotiated the most lucrative contract for a 2nd round draft pick in NBA history, at that time, making that contract the largest fully negotiated deal for an NBA draft pick since 1995. 

 

Prior to the 2018 NBA draft, Babcock served as a contributor for Sports Illustrated and The Crossover. He provided a series of stories outlining the protocols pertaining to the NBA draft process from the perspective of an NBA agent and the players they represent. 

 

Aside from Babcock’s experience as an agent and media member, he also brings first-hand experience as a former basketball player and coach. He was a standout player at George Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia and went on to be a member of the basketball teams at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida and the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. He also spent one season as an assistant coach for Virtus Bologna, a professional basketball team in Bologna, Italy. 

 

Along with Babcock’s professional experience, he also grew up in a 'basketball family'. He learned the game from his father, Dave Babcock, Director of Player Personnel for the Milwaukee Bucks and his two uncles, Pete and Rob Babcock, both of whom are former NBA general managers. His two cousins, Chris and Nate Babcock, also hold coaching positions within the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks organizations, respectively. 

 

Matt Babcock has learned from the best in every aspect of the game and has assimilated that knowledge into his daily work and life to emerge as a versatile sports professional, effectively operating in a number of different areas within the basketball industry. 

 

Matt, his wife, Meghan, and their two children, Matthew, Jr. and Madeleine, reside in Denver, Colorado.
