Dumars said he and Phil Jackson, who was retained by Pistons owner Tom Gores as a consultant in the coaching search, “spent a lot of time together during those two days” when the former Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers coach visited here two weeks ago.
The two have had “one or two conversations since then,” Dumars said.
Score one more point for the theory Phil Jackson’s role with the Pistons is only for show. That’s a worthless exercise, but it’s better than the alternative: Jackson and Dumars engaging in a harmful power struggle.
