Pistons hire Sachin Gupta as assistant general manager
DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons have hired Sachin Gupta as their assistant general manager.
The Pistons announced the move Tuesday.
Gupta was a special adviser to Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey last season. He previously worked for the Philadelphia 76ers under then-GM Sam Hinkie.
Ed Stefanski, a special adviser to Pistons owner Tom Gores, says Sachin has a great handle on analytics and will be a “tremendous resource” for the basketball operations team.
The Pistons have been overhauling their front office after the departure of Stan Van Gundy , who was their coach and team president for four seasons.
