Langdon came to the team from the New Orleans Pelicans, where he served as their general manager. He was their general manager for five seasons.

Weaver was hired in June 2020 after working for the Oklahoma City Thunder for a long time, over a decade. However, during his tenure, the Pistons were not good.

As Langdon will look to find a new general manager, he and his new front office executives will have to prepare for June’s draft. The Pistons hold the 5th overall pick.
 
The team also holds the 53rd overall pick in the second round.
 
Under Weaver’s watch, the Pistons sent 74-245.
 
Each season, the team missed out on the playoffs. In their first two seasons, the team has 23 wins.
 
However, over the past two seasons, the team did not win more than 17 games. They went 17-65 during the 2022-23 season.
 
This past season, the team went 14-68. This included an NBA-tying 28-game losing streak.
 
The Pistons and the Philadelphia 76ers are the only two teams to have a 28-game losing streak.
 
The 76ers had a 28-game losing streak that spanned over the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. 
 
Detroit has not made the playoffs since the 2018-19 season. That’s when the team went 41-41 and made the playoffs as the 8th seed.
 
They; however, were swept in the first round of the playoffs by the Milwaukee Bucks.
