Rob Murphy, assistant general manager of the Detroit Pistons, is on leave after the franchise opened an investigation into an allegation of workplace misconduct with a former female employee.

Murphy, who is from Detroit, was promoted to assistant GM in June after starting as the franchise's G League president and general manager in March 2021. He had spent the previous two decades as a college coach, including 10 years at Eastern Michigan as head coach until 2021.

Detroit's probe involving Murphy follows the season-long suspension by the Boston Celtics of Ime Udoka.
