Former Detroit Pistons GM Joe Dumars to run Sacramento Kings

Ever since Joe Dumars and the Detroit Pistons parted ways following the 2008-09 season, we have heard very little from him.

Now, according to reports, Dumars has landed a new gig with the Sacramento Kings. In fact, Dumars will be running the show as Vice President of Basketball Operations and GM, at least for a while, as Kings GM Vlade Divac is stepping down from the position. Dumars will also be involved in the search for a new general manager for the Kings.

Dumars, of course, won two NBA Championships with the Pistons as a player (1989-1990) and one as a GM (2004).


DAN ORLOVSKY SAYS MATTHEW STAFFORD COULD LEAVE THE DETROIT LIONS IN 2021

Ok, I have had just about enough of the “Matthew Stafford is leaving the Detroit Lions” and “The Detroit Lions are going to trade Matthew Stafford” make-believe bull-honky, just as many of you have. That being said, when Dan Orlovskywho is a good friend of Stafford, talks about Matthew potentially playing elsewhere in the very near future, it’s worth listening to.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press recently spoke to Orlovsky about Stafford’s chances of making the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and Orlovsky seems extremely confident.

“I don’t think it’s even going to be a question,” he said.

Orlovsky said he believes Stafford will either win with the Lions in 2020 or a winning team will trade for him prior to the 2021 season.

“His numbers will be great,” Orlovsky said. “I’ll keep it 100 with you, like, listen, he’s either going to win there this year or a winner’s going to come get him. I think if a winner comes gets him, or a team that’s on the brink of winning, is a quarterback away, I think that people will finally get to see him on a team that is fully complementary and supports that quarterback play, similar to the 2014 team. Or the 2011 team in some capacities.

“But I think that, maybe I’m stupid and naïve and biased, I just think eventually he’ll either win there or will be on a winner (if he doesn’t) because of it.”

Birkett added that Orlovsky said he can see a couple of scenarios happening following the 2020 season. The first scenario would be a contending team trading for Stafford, whose contract expires in 2022, and the second scenario would come into play if the Lions don’t win enough in 2020 and a new regime comes in and decides to go in a different direction.
