Say it ain't so Joe

According to a report in the Bergen (N.J.) Record, Detroit Pistons GM Joe Dumars recently interviewed for the soon to be vacant GM job for the New Jersey Nets. Dumars denied the report,but considering that the team is up for sale,that could lead to some uncertainty about his job. Oklahoma City's GM Sam Presti and New Orleans' Jeff Bower have also been mentioned to be interviewed.

Dumars has done a good job since being handed the reins to the team in 2000. A lot of people know that his draft history hasn't been that good (Mateen Cleaves,Rodney White,Darko Milicic),but he did build this team into a contender and deserves a chance to do it again. I would hope that new ownership will keep him around andt that Dumars has no ideas about leaving.
