NBA Rumors: Joe Dumars could leave Detroit Pistons for Cleveland Cavaliers GM job

There is turmoil in Cleveland with the Cavaliers at the moment but things are not much better over in Detroit with the Pistons. Despite having a roster that looks outstanding on paper, or if you’re playing with it in NBA2K14, the Pistons have been a terrible team this year and are looking to turn things around.

The guy who put the roster together is getting some heat for the lack of performance, but he may not have to put up with the grief much longer. Joe Dumars is still running the Pistons front office, but he could be leaving town to take the Cleveland Cavaliers general manager job if the reported interest in him is real.

Dumars has failed to put a winning team on the court in Detroit for a very long time and his struggle mirror that of the Cavs in a way. He’s had great draft picks to work with but they haven’t seemed to work out and neither have the acquisitions.

The Cavs need major change from the Chris Grant era, and Dumars may be the last name fans want to be hearing at this moment.
