Joe Dumars will alway be known as a member of the Detroit Pistons family. After all, he won two NBA Championships during his playing career in Detroit and won another as the Pistons’ GM.
Now, according to reports, Dumars is back in the NBA as the Sacramento Kings plan to hire him as a special advisor to Vlade Divac.

The Kings are expected to formally announce the hire today, providing recently extended general manager Divac with elite support in the team’s front office.
Divac has been out of the NBA since 2014 and has been working as the president of Independent Sports and Entertainment, an agency with over 300 clients across multiple professional sports leagues.
Dumars, of course, was an iconic NBA player in his own day. SLAM profiled him back when he was still working in Detroit’s front office.
