Detroit Pistons Begins Search for President of Basketball Operations

After years of a struggling rebuild, the Detroit Pistons are considering changes. But the changes begin with the obvious first move: Hiring a President of Basketball Operations, vacant since 2018, instead of simply relying on the General Manager to fill that role and communicate with upper management. A President of Basketball Operations is typically an highly-experienced and respected NBA veteran who fills the role of setting long-term direction for the franchise, communicating and providing guidance to both upper management and the General Manager.
