DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons have hired Sachin Gupta as their assistant general manager.

The Pistons announced the move Tuesday.

Gupta was a special adviser to Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey last season. He previously worked for the Philadelphia 76ers under then-GM Sam Hinkie.

Ed Stefanski, a special adviser to Pistons owner Tom Gores, says Sachin has a great handle on analytics and will be a "tremendous resource" for the basketball operations team.

The Pistons have been overhauling their front office after the departure of Stan Van Gundy, who was their coach and team president for four seasons.
