Pistons Name Sachin Gupta Assistant GM

The Pistons have announced the hiring of Sachin Gupta as the team’s new assistant general manager. “We are pleased to welcome Sachin Gupta to the Detroit Pistons organization,” said Ed Stefanski, special advisor to owner Tom Gores.

“Sachin is a creative thinker, extremely intelligent, and has a great handle on the analytical side of basketball operations systems. His analytics and salary cap background will be a tremendous resource while serving a leadership role for our basketball operations team.”

Gupta began his career in the NBA as Rockets’ general manager Daryl Morey’s first hire in 2006. He also worked under Sam Hinkie in the Sixers front office before returning to Houston as a special advisor to Morey last season.

Additionally, Gupta spent two years at ESPN helping foster the implementation of advanced analytical metrics that have now become widespread throughout the NBA.

    This is a great hire for the pistons. For the first time in a long time they are moving forward as an organization. Now the just have to trade away the current team and rebuild from scratch!

      Yes! For instance Sasha Vujacic is available right now for a rebuild from scratch!
      Now about Drummond…

  2. Not all the team, maybe just Reggie Jackson… I like the duo Blake/Drummond.

      The two are to similar to succeed. No real scoring threat away from the basket. And both are defensive liabilities away from the paint.

    Based on the picture, should also add that he’s excelled at shirt tossing during commercials. Great pic.
