Owner’s Playoff Proclamation Will Be Tough To Fulfill

Owner Tom Gores raised expectations when he stated his goal for next season during a press conference before the team’s home finale.

“I think we better make the playoffs,” he said.

Gores added that he didn’t see the need to make any significant changes to reach that goal. Fortunately, his president of basketball operations, Joe Dumars, realizes that he’s only in the middle of the rebuilding process.

“What I say to (coach) Lawrence (Frank) is, ‘I’ve got to get more guys that you like — their style of play, what fits you, and what you want to do,’ ” he said. “So it’s a hand-in-hand thing. He knows he’s got to get the guys better; I know I’ve got to give him more guys.”
