The Detroit Pistons have announced that George David has been named assistant general manager.

David is back at the Pistons following a six-year run at Wasserman Media Group as Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations. He’s a Farmington native.

“I’m excited to return to the Detroit Pistons and help Tom Gores, Arn Tellem and Troy Weaver in the restoring effort of the franchise,” David said in a statement. “Detroit has always been home for me and I know how passionate the city and region is about their sports teams. Troy’s vision for building the roster aligns with the core values of Detroit Basketball and I look forward to playing a role in the continued rise of the organization.”

David was assistant general manager with Detroit from 2012 to 2014. Before then, he served as director of player personnel (2007-12) and as director of scouting (2002-2007).

“We are pleased to have George David make his return to the Pistons organization,” Pistons general manager Troy Weaver said in a statement. “George has seen success at a championship level and understands exactly what we are restoring in Detroit. His knowledge of the franchise and accumulated experience around all facets of the NBA will be invaluable as we continue to move forward.”
