Sachin Gupta Named Assistant General Manager Of Detroit Pistons

Press Release
08/10/2018

The Detroit Pistons announced today that Sachin Gupta has been named assistant general manager.  Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to welcome Sachin Gupta to the Detroit Pistons organization,” said Ed Stefanski, Special Advisor to owner Tom Gores.  “Sachin is a creative thinker, extremely intelligent, and has a great handle on the analytical side of basketball operations systems.  His analytics and salary cap background will be a tremendous resource while serving a leadership role for our basketball operations team.”

Gupta spent last season as a special advisor to Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey, his second stint with the organization.  The Boston-area native began his NBA career with the Rockets in 2006 as Morey’s first hire, laying the foundation for the team’s extensive analytics undertaking, which the Rockets would later become renowned for. In addition to his responsibilities as an analyst, Gupta also assisted in managing the team’s salary cap during his six-year tenure in Houston.

Gupta transitioned to the Philadelphia 76ers front office in 2013 as a consultant prior to the NBA Draft while finishing MBA studies at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business.  He then moved to a more permanent position, Vice President of Basketball Operations in 2014 and served as General Manager Sam Hinkie’s top lieutenant.  Gupta served a substantial role in driving the club’s overhaul that led to this past season’s return to the NBA Playoffs. 

Prior to joining the NBA ranks, Gupta spent two years at ESPN where he had a hand in fostering basketball’s analytical movement, implementing advanced NBA metrics on ESPN.com before their use had become widespread across the league. While at ESPN, he also became well versed in the CBA when he developed the widely popular NBA Trade Machine.

Gupta earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from MIT.

SAPNE Folk Literature Event


Indian culture lives among people. The vast regions of South Asia are the home of world’s oldest mythology, folklore, ballads and rhythm of life. We have not studied if a rhythm is inherent in human biology or if we learn the rhythm from nature. Rhythm becomes our company in life, we perform our best when we are in rhythm. Rhythm is harmony in human existence and it manifests in human expressions. Without fully analyzing it, we settle it as an inner voice and then we use the term "God". Come and be part of the SAPNE Folk Literature Event on August 18th.
