Former Detroit Pistons GM Joe Dumars joins NBA front office

He's known as one of the great players in Detroit Pistons history, winning two titles as a member of the famed “Bad Boys” squad and who would later help deliver another championship as general manager in 2004.

Joe Dumars is headed to the NBA front office as executive vice president and head of basketball operations after having been serving the past three seasons with the Sacramento Kings as chief strategy officer.

“Joe’s extensive track record of accomplishment as an NBA player and team executive and the leadership and expertise that he has demonstrated in various roles make him a natural fit to drive efforts to further enhance the game,” Byron Spruell, president of league operations, said in a league statement. “As a respected longtime member of the NBA family, Joe has developed strong relationships across the league that will set the foundation for success in his new position.”

“My life has centered on the NBA for nearly 40 years, which makes the opportunity to serve the entire league incredibly exciting and rewarding,” Dumars said in a league statement. “I’m looking forward to using my skills and experience to collaborate with all 30 teams on ways to shape the future direction of the league and help the game continue to evolve.”

Dumars enjoyed a Hall of Fame NBA career before transitioning to the Pistons front office after his playing days ended.
