With the Detroit Pistons in the middle of another disappointing season, rumors have grown surrounding the security of Joe Dumars position as GM of the team.
Former New York Knicks executive, Isaiah Thomas was linked to the team in recent weeks and although it now seems that talk has cooled, it would be unlikely to see Dumars back in 2014-15.
In fact NBC Sports report that Ric Bucher has gone on record to say: "sources do not expect Dumars to stay in the position much longer—either he’ll step down or owner Tom Gores will go in a new direction."
It is hardly a secret that the Pistons need to go in a different direction, after firing Mo Cheeks as head coach after less than a year the team are in the middle of a barren stretch.
The Pistons have not made the playoffs since 2010 and currently have the ninth best record in the eastern conference.
Dumars was able to guide the Pistons to a NBA championship in 2004 but the team have only managed nine playoff series wins since then and it looks like the organization may be ready for a change.
