Pistons using search firm to help find new GM
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Pistons will use the executive search firm Korn Ferry to help with their pursuit of a new general manager.
Joe Dumars stepped down as team president earlier this week, leaving Detroit looking for a general manager and coach after missing the playoffs the last five seasons. Korn Ferry will assist, but the ownership group will ultimately run the process.
Coach Maurice Cheeks was fired in February, and interim coach John Loyer is expected to be included in the search for a full-time replacement. Assistant general manager George David and director of basketball operations Ken Catanella are expected to be included in the search for a new GM.
