Pistons hire John Loyer, “likely to retain” Brian Hill as assistant coaches

Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:

Assistant coach John Loyer is headed to Detroit to join Lawrence Frank’s staff, according to Nets coach Avery Johnson, who spoke with beat writers today from the practice facility in East Rutherford.

Loyer, who worked under Frank in New Jersey, is leaving a staff that already lost Larry Krystkowiak and may also lose/let go of Sam Mitchell.

Perry A. Farrell of the Detroit Free Press:

They are likely to retain assistant coach Brian Hill.

Neither hire is a surprise. The Pistons received permission to interview Loyer a week ago, and Lawrence Frank worked with Hill before.

With Dee Brown and Roy Rogers already in the fold, that makes four assistant coaches. Although the Pistons could hire more, I’d guess you’re looking at your coaching staff for next season. Bringing in more assistants would have diminishing returns and add costs.

    I don’t know anything about Loyer. Is it a good hire?

    Retaining Hill is a mistake.

    Austin Daye went for 30 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks in Vegas.
