Joe Dumars

Joe Dumars III is an American former basketball player in the National Basketball Association. He could play either shooting guard or point guard on offense and was a highly effective defender.

Initially a shooting guard, Dumars moved to point guard following Thomas' retirement in 1994, sharing ball-handling duties with Grant Hill. Dumars was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006. Dumars served as the president of basketball operations for the Pistons from 2000 to 2014.
