Former Cavs GM Griffin on Pistons’ radar?

Former Cavaliers general manager David Griffin spent 17 years with working for the Suns.

Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin may be a name to watch in the Detroit Pistons’ search for a new top basketball executive, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Griffin parted ways with the Cavs following last season after the team had made three consecutive trips to the Finals. He has spent much of this season as a guest analyst for various media outlets, including NBA Sirius XM Radio and NBA TV.

The Pistons parted ways with coach and president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy on Monday. They are now looking to fill both roles.

The Free Press reported earlier┬áthe Pistons are seeking an “experienced” front-office executive to replace Van Gundy. Griffin, no doubt, would fit such a description.

Other names to watch for front-office roles in Detroit, per various reports: Former NBA guard and current agent B.J. Armstrong, former NBA guard and current Turner Sports analyst Brent Barry, and ex-Pistons guard and current ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups.
