Detroit reportedly intends to reach out to potential candidates this week.
Ed Stefanski has served as the team's de facto general manager since 2018. He was hired as a senior adviser following the firing of GM Jeff Bower. The new hire will work closely with Stefanski and Pistons head coach Dwane Casey, Wojnarowski reports.
The Pistons traded center Andre Drummond and bought out guard Reggie Jackson this season, paving the way for a rebuild. However, star forward Blake Griffin and former MVP Derrick Rose remain under contract. The former is expected to miss the rest of the 2019-20 campaign after undergoing knee surgery in January.
