As the Detroit The Pistons are looking for a new boss, they are losing one of their top front office assistants.

Pistons Assistant General Manager Malik Rose leaves the organization for a job with the NBA, Free Press confirmed Monday.

Rose’s move comes less than a week after the Pistons opened their search for a new GM. But Roe’s exit has been in the works for weeks and is not related to the new job that opened in Detroit.

Rose joined the Pistons in 2018 after spending three seasons as Atlanta Hawks head of basketball operations and general manager of the G-League’s Erie BayHawks. At that time, senior adviser Ed Stefanski praised Rose’s basketball knowledge as a former player and administrator.

Recorded in 1996, Rose played 13 seasons in the NBA with stops with the Charlotte Hornets, San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder.

The New York Daily News first reported the news Monday morning.
