The Detroit Pistons are adding quality to their revamped front office, as Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Detroit Pistons have offered a front office role to Atlanta Hawks executive Malik Rose.


The former Drexel star played on four NBA teams from 1996-2009. Rose, along with NBA TV analyst Brent Barry, were strong candidates for front office roles. Rose, the Atlanta Hawks manager of basketball operations, has risen quickly through the front office ranks. 

In 2017, he was given a promotion to general manager of the NBA Gatorade League’s Erie Bayhawks, while continuing to serve in his role as Atlanta’s manager of basketball operations. Rose was named G-League executive of the year this season.
“It’s something I had on my radar,” Rose told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in April 2017. “My end goal is to be a GM in the NBA one day. A lot of NBA GMs got their start being the GM of a D-League team. It was something that was always on my wish list. Something I always hoped would happen.”
The Pistons hired Ed Stefanski as senior adviser, and will pick 42nd overall pick Thursday at the NBA draft.
