The Detroit Pistons announced that George David is rejoining the team as assistant general manager after spending six years away from the organization.

“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,” says David. “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.”

He started as director of scouting for the team in 2002, was promoted to director of player personnel in 2007, and to assistant general manager in 2012 under general manager Joe Dumars.

From 2015 until his return, he served as senior vice president of basketball operations at Wasserman Media Group, where he worked with numerous high-profile NBA players represented by Wasserman.

“We are pleased to have George David make his return to the Pistons organization”, says Weaver, general manager of the Pistons. “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.”
