Just when the Pistons opened for business again, they might have to close up shop for an extended period.
Alan Ostfield is out as President and CEO of Palace Sports and Entertainment.
The report says that new owner Tom Gores has former Knicks President Dave Checketts helping him out and that Checketts is behind the Patrick Ewing for head coach interview.
“I need to deliver on the standards of your passion. I promise I will lose sleep to deliver to that standard.” — New owner Tom Gores on his promise to the fans to make the team a winner again.
Anyone hoping to see the Pistons move to the city of Detroit should not hold their breath. New owner Tom Gores is happy with the team’s current arena, The Palace of Auburn Hills, even though it is more than 20 years old.
The Detroit Pistons have fired head coach John Kuester and they are now looking for a coach to replace him.
The Detroit Pistons fire head coach John Kuester four days after new owner Tom Gores finalizes purchase of the team from Karen Davidson.
Battered and bruised Pistons coach John Kuester is expected to meet today with new owner Tom Gores and team president Joe Dumars — and every sign points to Coach Q packing his bags and finding a soft landing spot in Los Angeles.
Gores was asked who he will turn to for basketball knowledge and then looked down in the front row and said “Joe Dumars will tell me everything I need to know.”
Joe Dumars can finally make long overdue changes, but he’d better have a good explanation for every one of them.
