It had been rumored for weeks that Joe Dumars would either resign or would not have his contract renewed by the Detroit Pistons.

On Monday, the Detroit Pistons announced that Dumars would step down as President of Basketball Operations, yet remain as an advisor to the organization and its ownership group. During his 14 years as President, Dumars guided the organization to a 595-536 (.527) regular-season record, 73 playoff wins, six Eastern Conference Finals appearances (2003-08), six Central Division titles, two Eastern Conference Championships (2004, 2005), two NBA Finals appearances and the 2004 NBA Championship.

The Pistons have not made the playoffs since 2009.

During the 2005-2006 season, Detroit recorded its best regular-season record in franchise history (64-18). The Pistons made it to the Eastern Conference Finals six straight years (2003–2008) under Dumars’ leadership.

compiled by staff, wire and Milwaukee Bucks news

Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond name has now been added to a long list of NBA executive of the year, including Hall of Fame members Jerry West and Red Auerbach.

Hammond became the first Bucks executive to win the award, after Milwaukee finished the regular season with 12 more wins than last season and earned its first playoff berth since 2006.

Bucks owner and United States Senator Herb Kohl hired Hammond, who had been Joe Dumars’ assistant in Detroit, just over two years ago to rebuild the floundering team’s fortunes.

Hammond received 12 of 30 votes from a panel of fellow NBA executives. Oklahoma City’s Sam Presti was second with nine votes and Cleveland’s Danny Ferry  took third with two votes in results announced on Saturday.

Despite losing Michael Redd to a season-ending knee injury in January and season-ending injuries to Andrew Bogut in early April, Milwaukee finished 46-36 to earn the sixth seed in the East and a first-round matchup with Atlanta.

Hammond’s decision to select Brandon Jennings with the 10th overall pick of  last year’s draft paid off when the guard earning a starting spot in training camp and went on to average 15.5 points during his rookie season.

The Bucks have emphasized defense since Hammond hired Scott Skiles as the  coach when he took over. The team was allowing 103.9 ppg in 2007-08 (23rd) to 96.0 ppg in 2009-10 (7th).
