Pistons executives George David and Ken Cantanella will run team through draft and free agency as ownership conducts search for replacement
Joe Dumars will not have his contract renewed as #Pistons president, in an ownership decision. He did NOT resign.
I’d guess Dumars will still be out when his contract expires in a month and a half. This new role sounds as superficial as Lawrence Frank’s daily reports for the Nets. Effectively, Dumars is done, and that’s been clear for a while.
But why are David and Catanella slated to run the team for so long? Tom Gores and crew aren’t further in a search for Dumars’ replacement? Surely, this didn’t catch them off guard, so what gives?
