Arn Tellem Rumors
Eastern Conference executive 1: All worthy candidates to at least consider, but Cade is hard to pass on. Eastern Conference executive 2: Now, maybe (GM Troy Weaver) sees something in Mobley that nobody else sees. And that could be him. Troy knows how to pick ’em. So maybe he sees something in Evan that he doesn’t quite see in Cade — long term, for their team. The other part about Evan is Wasserman. Arn (Tellem, the former mega-agent, who is now the Pistons’ vice chairman) created Wasserman, so there could be a connection there.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson opened the drop box, inserted her ballot envelope and closed the door. That was it; it was that simple. Benson, along with Pistons vice chairman Arn Tellem and coach Dwane Casey, took part in a small ceremony Tuesday morning to demonstrate the ease of dropping off completed ballots on Election Day, for those who already received absentee ballots.
She underscored the Pistons’ involvement since early June in being involved in the voting process and how it helped set a precedent for sports teams in the country. “Before the trend began, and really through their leadership and their example, we saw teams all across the country open up their arenas, open up their facilities … and partnered with NBA teams to expand that even more, recruiting poll workers,” Benson said. “This what the Pistons have done back in August and now for November, and so grateful for their leadership.”
Rod Beard: #Pistons vice chairman Arn Tellem on the team’s involvement in voter engagement: “We haven’t just talked the game — we’ve walked the talk. We have over 150 employees that are serving as poll workers today. I don’t think any organization can say that anywhere.”
Rod Beard: #Pistons vice chairman Arn Tellem: “We’re a nonpartisan organization but as far as standing up for democracy, the rule of law, decency, compassion, empathy and respect for others, we believe in it — and I think those values are what this election is all about.”
