Former Knicks general manager linked to Detroit Pistons front office job

After a season in which the Detroit Pistons finished last in the Eastern Conference, the organization plans to make some changes at the top. Shortly after the season ended, reports surfaced that the team will look to hire a president of basketball operations this summer.

Countless names have been linked to this location in recent weeks. SNY’s Ian Begley recently reported that former New York Knicks general manager Scott Perry is among the potential candidates.

“Former Knicks general manager Scott Perry is under consideration for an opening for president of basketball operations with the Detroit Pistons, according to people familiar with the matter. The Pistons are hiring a top basketball executive to report directly to owner Tom Gores, and the team is consulting a search firm to assist in the hiring.

Perry and the Pistons have a history, as he was employed by the organization. Then president Joe Dumars hired Perry for a front office role in 2000. During that time, he helped build the roster that was a contender for several years and won a championship in 2004.
