On Tuesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Detroit Pistons are beginning a search for a general manager to work alongside Ed Stefanski and Dwane Casey.
The question is, who would be the best candidate for the job that would also be interested in the job?
Here are 3 candidates who I believe would be a good fit for the Pistons.
Chauncey Billups not only played with the Pistons for eight seasons, but he has been mentioned plenty of times as the perfect GM candidate if the team ever begins a search. Well, that search is reportedly underway and you can bet Billups will get a call from Ed Stefanski and company.
Like Billups, Tayshaun Prince also has a connection to the Pistons as he played with the Goin’ to Work Pistons for 12 seasons. Prince is currently the Vice President of Basketball affairs for the Memphis Grizzlies and he would be a solid choice to be the next general manager of the Pistons.
Though Shane Battier never played for the Detroit Pistons, he was born in Birmingham, MI and he played his high school basketball at Detroit Country Day, where he won the 1997 Mr. Basketball Award for the state of Michigan. Following high school, Battier went on to play four seasons at Duke where he won a National Championship in 2001. He is currently the Director of Basketball Analytics and Development for the Miami Heat.
Nation, which of these three candidates would you prefer?
