Basketball Hall of Famer Joe Dumars joins sports agency
NEW YORK (AP) Basketball Hall of Famer Joe Dumars has joined a sports agency.
Independent Sports and Entertainment announced Tuesday it hired Dumars to run its basketball division, which includes clients such as New Orleans Pelicans star DeMarcus Cousins.
Dumars says he looks forward to beginning the new chapter of his career.
He won consecutive NBA titles as a shooting guard and defensive stopper for the Detroit Pistons, known as the Bad Boys, in 1989 and 1990. He led the franchise to its third NBA title as president of basketball operations in 2004 during a stretch that included six straight trips to the Eastern Conference finals.
The Pistons didn't renew Dumars' contract following the 2013-14 season and he has traveled the world since then, evaluating career options.
