The Detroit Pistons have reportedly placed assistant general manager Rob Murphy on leave as the team investigates allegations of workplace misconduct involving a former female employee.
Sources told ESPN and the Associated Press that the team placed the 50-year-old on leave last week once management began investigating the allegations.
The Associated Press reported that Murphy became assistant general manager in June after he was promoted from the Pistons G League team Motor City Cruise, where he served as its general manager and president.
News of the Pistons' investigation comes a month after the Boston Celtics suspended head coach Ime Udoka for the entire 2022-23 season for violating team policies, NPR reported.
According to the AP, the Celtics suspended him after finding that he had an improper relationship with a female organization member.
