David Kahm (born 1961) is an American sports executive, attorney, and former sportswriter. He is currently the president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association.

Kahn hails from Portland, Oregon, and attended college at UCLA, graduating with an English degree in 1983. While at UCLA, he wrote on a free-lance basis for the Los Angeles Times. Upon his graduation, he returned to his hometown of Portland and worked as a sportswriter for The Oregonian from 1983 through 1989, where he covered the local and national sports scene, including the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers.[1][2]

After leaving the Oregonian, Kahn pursued and received a law degree from NYU,[3] and worked with a law firm for several years. He then worked for the Indiana Pacers, including a stint as general manager from 1998 through 2002. After his tenure with the Pacers, Kahn returned to Portland and spearheaded an effort to lure the Montreal Expos or another major-league team to Portland; the Expos ultimately relocated to Washington, D.C. and became the Nationals. Kahn was also involved in real estate ventures in the Portland area. In 2005, he purchased several teams in the NBDL.[4]

On May 22, 2009, Kahn was introduced as the president of basketball operations of the Timberwolves.[5][6]
