Detroit Pistons Promote George David To Assistant General Manager
AUBURN HILLS – The Detroit Pistons promoted George David to assistant general manager, making him the right-hand man to Joe Dumars, the team’s president of basketball operations.
David, who has been with the Pistons for 15 seasons, replaces Scott Perry, who left his job as Detroit’s vice president of basketball operations to become assistant general manager with the Orlando Magic last week.
David, a Farmington Hills native, will “direct the day-to-day operations of the basketball department, handling player personnel issues, assisting in roster development and coordinating league and companywide administrative duties,” the team said in a statement.
“George has played a significant role for our basketball operations team in coordinating our draft preparation, scouting, free agent analysis and administration,” Dumars said in a statement. “He will do a great job in his new position.”
His previous position was director of player personnel, a post he’s held since 2007. Prior to that, he was director of scouting since 2002.
David, 38, joined the Pistons during the 1996-97 season as video coordinator. He graduated from Indiana University in 1996, where he had been a student assistant under Coach Bob Knight.
