The Spurs have become the NBA’s model franchise, where teams turn when they need a new coach or executive.

The Pistons have flipped the script a little this summer.

After the Kings poached Detroit assistant general manager Ken Catanella, another Pistons assistant general manager — Brian Wright — is headed to… San Antonio.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Wright has worked his way up focused on college scouting, and he deserves this bigger opportunity. The highlight of his resume? The Spurs hiring him. They’re still the model franchise, after all.

San Antonio needed to hire another executive after losing Sean Marks to the Nets and Scott Layden to the Timberwolves.
