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.
