Nets director of player personnel J.R. Holden and Warriors assistant GM Mike Dunleavy are among the executives on the Pistons' radar as they look to add to their front office, per SNY sources.
Holden had a remarkable Euroleague playing career and worked for both the 76ers and Pistons in scouting roles before Nets GM Sean Marks added him as director of player personnel last year.
Dunleavy Jr., a 15-year NBA veteran, started scouting with Golden State in 2018 and was promoted to assistant general manager last season.
Nets assistant GM Jeff Peterson and Thunder VP of basketball operations Troy Weaver are among the top candidates for the Pistons' opening, SNY sources confirm.
Marks and the Nets hired Peterson from Atlanta prior to last season.
The Detroit Free Press reported that the Pistons are "looking to add an experienced candidate for its GM position, and an up-and-coming executive for the assistant opening."
Dunleavy Jr. and Holden are believed to be under consideration for the assistant GM position. Detroit has significant cap space this offseason and will likely have a top pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, so Detroit team president Ed Stefanski is looking to add to his staff.
The New York Times reported that Weaver had emerged as a top candidate in Detroit.
