Sources tell 97.1 The Ticket’s Matt Dery that former Piston Lindsey Hunter has asked the Phoenix Suns for permission to interview for the Pistons Head Coaching vacancy. Hunter went 12-29 as interim coach for the Suns this past season and now is on hold with the organization. The Suns just fired GM Lance Blanks, who hired Hunter. It is expected that the Suns will grant Hunter permission to speak to Detroit very soon.
