Mincberg most recently spent three years with the Bucks serving as VP of basketball strategy under GM Jon Horst.
Before his time in Milwaukee, he worked for the Memphis Grizzlies for five years as the director of scouting. Mincberg is an attorney by training, with a law degree from UC Berkley, and served as the lead attorney for the Grizzlies before being elevated to be more involved in the basketball operations side of things where he worked with current Pistons senior adviser Ed Stefanski.
There is no clear connection from Mincberg to new GM Troy Weaver so absent of any additional information this seems like a decision led by Stefanski. It’s unclear what role Mincberg will play in the Pistons front office. Previously, Pat Garrity was responsible for some of the contract and financial management of the team, Sachin Gupta was the go-to data analysis exec, and Malik Rose was more involved in player personnel and development.
Mincberg has worn many hats, and the Pistons might rely on him to play multiple roles as an assistant under Weaver.
Omari Sankofa of the Detroit Free Press reports that Weaver will plan to make “at least” two more hires in the front office beyond Mincberg.
We will have more as this story develops.
