Some questionable decisions turned into genius moves on the part of Dumars. Moves like trading Grant Hill for Ben Wallace/Chucky Atkins, swapping Jerry Stackhouse for Richard Hamilton and completing the 2004 championship team by acquiring Rasheed Wallace.
However, Dumars' resume is still filled with head-scratching decisions that haven't panned out as expected, especially in recent years. Drafting Austin Daye in 2009 hasn't worked out. Nor has overspending on Charlie Villanueva and Ben Gordon. Worst of all could have been trading Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson.
Dumars has been hot and cold throughout his term as the Pistons general manager. As Detroit continues to struggle while rebuilding, an instant eye test would say Dumars has overstayed his welcome. But after taking a step back, there are more reasons to keep Dumars on board instead of letting him walk from his team.
Here are three reasons Joe Dumars should stay on as the Detroit Pistons general manager.
