DETROIT -- A person with knowledge of the talks says the Detroit Pistons and Jeff Bower are nearing an agreement that would make him the team's general manager.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal was not yet final.

The Pistons hired Stan Van Gundy as their coach and team president last month.

Bower was the coach at Marist College last season, but he resigned Monday. Athletic director Tim Murray said in a statement that Bower was leaving for "a very specific and compelling NBA opportunity."

Bower was previously a general manager and coach in the NBA, holding both those positions with the New Orleans Hornets in 2009-10.
