Maurice Cheeks is Leading Candidate to Land Pistons job
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Detroit Pistons have finally targeted the man they want to take over as head coach following the dismissal of Lawrence Frank.
Oklahoma City Thunder assistant Mo Cheeks has emerged as the strong frontrunner to become the Detroit Pistons’ head coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Discussions on a contract could begin soon, league sources said.
Detroit’s ownership and management reached a consensus on Cheeks as their choice, league sources said.
The pickings must be slim if the Pistons are going to settle for Cheeks, who has had chances in the past to prove he is more than an average head coach. I wish him well because he’s going to need it with that roster.
