Detroit Pistons senior advisor Ed Stefanski and vice chairman Arn Tellem are starting their search for a general manager.

According to multiple reports, Stefanski plans to begin interviewing candidates for the GM post this week.

Stefanski was hired in 2018 and ownership requested a restructured front office with coach Dwane Casey maintaining some input.

Stefanski said the critical element for the Pistons is to "get the draft right."

The Pistons are projected to have more than $30 million under the salary cup and a top five pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

But the coronavirus pandemic could reduce the cap and the lottery format isn't certain unless the season is completed.
