Pistons Says They’re Cool on Isiah Thomas

Isiah Thomas

A report came out over the weekend the Pistons had interest in hiring Thomas in some capacity with the team.

As you can imagine fans were outrage, so the Pistons came out with a statement today courtesy of MLIVE.

A spokesman for Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores called a report that the team is wooing Isiah Thomas as its next general manager “absolutely false.”

“He is not a candidate for any job with the Pistons,” Barnhill wrote about Thomas.

Mark Barnhill, a partner in Gores’ Platinum Equity, wrote in an email to MLive that he and Gores had dinner with Thomas a couple weeks ago in Los Angeles but the upcoming Bad Boys reunion “was the sole topic.  Period.”
