Pistons’ Owner Tom Gores; Game Time Interview
WWJ’s Rhonda Moss conducts an interview with the Detroit Pistons’ new owner Tom Gores. Gores tells WWJ’s Moss that he plans to be at the owners’ meeting this week and expects the deal to be finalized by June 1.
Tom Gores says its a dream come true, after reaching an agreement to buy the Detroit Pistons.
The Flint native was in a suite when the Pistons hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he spoke with reporters briefly as the game began.
Gores says he wants to build on the foundation set by Bill Davidson, who owned the team when it won NBA titles in 1989, 1990 and 2004.
Davidson died in 2009, and his wife Karen agreed Friday to sell the franchise.
