Orlando Magic rumor: Detroit Pistons consider Scott Perry for general manager, according to report

Hooper - Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Detroit is reportedly interested in bringing aboard Orlando's current assistant general manager to replace the departed Joe Dumars.

The Detroit Pistons plan to conduct a "broad search" for Joe Dumars' replacement as general manager, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.com, but have already added Orlando Magic assistant general manager Scott Perry to their list of potential candidates.

When the Magic hired Rob Hennigan as general manager in 2012, he worked quickly to add Perry to his staff, bringing the former Pistons vice president of basketball operations aboard nine days into his tenure. According to the Magic, "Perry is responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations of the Magic’s basketball operations department, handling player personnel issues, and assisting in roster management and development."

Prior to joining the Magic, Perry served in Detroit's front office, first as a college scout and then as the team's director of player personnel before his promotion to that vice-president position. All told, Perry spent 11 years with the Pistons and one season with the Seattle SuperSonics, where he held an assistant-GM role.

After 14 years, Detroit relieved Dumars of his general-manager duties Monday. He will remain with the team in an advisory role.
