Grant Hill reportedly not interested in Pistons GM role

The Pistons may be interested in a reunion with Grant Hill, but the feeling isn't reciprocal.

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News cites people close to Hill who said he won't consider a front office position this close to retirement. The report comes in the same week in which Detroit was said to be reportedly looking to bring back the seven-time All-Star to fill the team's GM role, which opened up this month following the resignation of Joe Dumars.

Hill, 41, said he's too close to having just retired in 2013 to consider returning to the league as an executive. He wants to spend more time with his wife, Tamia, and their two children after having last played an NBA game a season ago with the Los Angeles Clippers; when his children are older, he would consider taking a front office role, according to those in his inner circle cited in the report.

With Hill reportedly set on sticking to his current NBA TV analyst position, the focus will shift to Orlando Magic Assistant General Manager Scott Perry, a Detroit-native who had served as Dumars' vice-president from 2008-12. He was also vice president with the Thunder when the franchise was in Seattle.
