Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported this morning that Grizzlies Executive Vice President Ed Stefanski will be leaving for Detroit, where he's expected to "overhaul" the Pistons' basketball ops in the wake of Stan Van Gundy's departure:

Stefanski will be tasked with hiring a GM and a coach in Detroit. After a stint in Philadelphia as general manager and a brief tenure with the Toronto Raptors, Stefanski joined the Grizzlies in 2014.

As is the case with all things related to the Grizzlies' front office, it's not exactly clear what Stefanski's role has been over the last four seasons, but from the things I've heard about the decisions he supported, I think he was a positive force in the Grizzlies' decision-making. It will be interesting to see what the Grizzlies decide to do with the new vacancy in his absence.
