(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Bob Hyde is the salary cap expert for the Utah Jazz. Hyde handles multiple financial issues for the Jazz and the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Hyde was photographed at the Jazz offices in Salt Lake City, Utah, Thursday, September 20, 2012.
Did you know? > Hyde turned former owner Larry Miller's "batting average" player-evaluation system into a "book" that relies on more than 12 formulas to rate NBA athletes.
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey on Hyde > "The Jazz have been doing a lot of cool and progressive things for a long time.
Bob's a big part of a lot of analytical and progressive movements that the Jazz have had in place."
As the Jazz have constantly shopped, evaluated and traded million-dollar pieces the last two seasons, overhauling their roster in the attempt to remain competitive in the ever-changing Western Conference, Hyde's been at the center of it all.
He doesn't initiate the first move. He doesn't call the final shot. He's rarely ever seen and almost never quoted. But Hyde is O'Connor's right-hand man. He's the Jazz's salary-cap guru, chief financial officer and Moneyball-believer rolled into one. And while Hyde swears his job and name don't merit mention, he's quietly become the most interesting - and at times the most important - person on the Millers' payroll.
"Bob was critical in my process to make my decision," said Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey, referring to an August move that saw him trade San Antonio for Salt Lake City.
A young bruiser named Karl Malone had been drafted No. 13 overall out of Louisiana Tech. Checketts leaned on Hyde while Malone's agent pushed for big money.
"We argued for two hours over $5,000. … Times have changed," said Hyde, Jazz executive vice president/CFO and president of Fanzz.
In February 2011, Hyde helped pull off one of the biggest moves in franchise history. He was nervous and apprehensive before Utah unexpectedly shipped Williams to New Jersey. But Hyde was also excited. Numbers had been crunched, background checks had been run and Hyde had consulted a salary cap expert's version of the Bible: the NBA's player contract management system.
Hyde had privately been in the know since jumpball.
At 57, Hyde's much closer to the end of his career than the beginning.
But Hyde isn't closing shop anytime soon. His cap expertise will be essential during a season that could see Utah carry eight expiring contracts, while four multimillion dollar contract extensions and a possible 2013 free-agent spending spree loom.
"The process in the past has been that Kevin does all the work," Hyde said.
