Richard Andrew "Andy" Roeser (born 1959 in Michigan) is the president of the National Basketball Association'sLos Angeles Clippers franchise. He serves as the alternate governor of the Clippers, representing the team in league matters among the NBA's Board of Governors. Roeser is the third-longest tenured member of the Clipper franchise, besides owner Donald Sterling and play-by-play broadcaster Ralph Lawler, having joined the team in 1984 after its move from San Diego. He first served as executive vice president, and was promoted to team president in 1986.
Prior to joining the Clippers, Roeser worked at the accounting firm Ernst & Young. He also serves as the president of the Los Angeles Clippers Foundation, the team's charitable arm. He is also a board member of the Los Angeles Sports Council and Cal State Long Beach's Advisory Board for the Graduate Program in Sports Management. As Clippers' president, Roeser is largely in charge of the team's business operations, also including negotiating player contracts. Famously, Roeser is possibly known best for his appearance at the 2009 NBA Draft Lottery, where the team won the right to pick number one overall (the pick became University of Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin), and Roeser donned a pattern designed as the Clippers' home white jersey inside his sport-jacket with the number 1 emblazoned.
