The Detroit Pistons will hire Troy Weaver as general manager.

Weaver has been the Vice President of Basketball Operations with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Pistons searched for a general manager to work with Ed Stefanski this spring.

Weaver will become the NBA's ninth current black general manager.

The Thunder have had four executives leave the franchise for GM jobs in Weaver, Rich Cho, Rob Hennigan and Michael Winger.
