Coach don’t lie?

It would give me great joy if in my lifetime Rasheed Wallace became a head coach in the NBA. It may never happen, but a man can dream. In the interim it looks like Sheed will be joining the Pistons staff.

Wallace is talking with new Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks and Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars about a position on Cheeks’ staff.

Dumars confirmed the news after today’s news conference to introduce the team’s rookie class.

“Nothing is done yet, but it’s a good possibility,” he said.

Sheed has always been described as one of the smartest basketball players around and when he wasn’t getting technicals, he was a teacher on and off the court.

I would bet he would a better head coach than Jason Kidd if given the opportunity.
