    This team is too young for Larry Brown anyways. He likes his older veterans and this team lacks those in quite a few spots.

    That would be a terrible shame, re-hiring Brown only with this team. 

    8 years later and I still can’t think of a better way of alienating players and a fanbase within a year of winning a championship than how Brown acted in ’05.

    The Pistons dont really search for a coach. They simply wait until the dregs are left at the bottom of the bowl.You can see already (well, its been over 2 years) that Gores is a clueless rich LA boy with no basketball acumen, and Joe D is not the GM he was 10 years ago. He sure did a great job here at one time, but he attracts neither players or coaches to this sorry franchise at this time.
    I keep thinking that if you are a rich, star quality NBA free agent, there isnt one reason to go to Detroit right now. If you are a decent coach, would you want 2 years and out with a team that has no identity, no competitiveness, no entertainment value, and poor talent?

    Why are all these non-stories, news items? This is shameful!

      Because there is nothing else to write about right now, so it’s either non-stories or nothing.

    The Pistons should now contact George Karl for an interview. He just got fired.

    George Karl was just released from his contract with the Nuggets. One more seat to fill, more bid wars for Shaw & Hollins, and Karl may be open to coach another team. The coaching free-agency is more entertaining than the players free-agency.

    George Karl knows how to make disparate pieces fit well. Could make something happen with the Stuckey-Knight combo.

    George Karl might be my new first pick for a head coach.  He only had a couple of losing season his whole career and those were his first couple as a coach.  He always seemed to get more out of his players.

    I have a feeling that the Pistons won’t even have a shot at Shaw.

        With what he’s done in the past, especially with Denver, he would be a great choice for the Pistons young team.  My only concerns are his playoff record.  He might be the perfect Rick Carlisle type of coach they need.  Someone to get the team playing well in the regular season for a few years and then pull in a closer in a few years.

        Unfortunately I think the Pistons will be up against some stiff compitions for him.  They are already naming teams like the the Clippers, Brooklyn & Memphis as teams that are interested in him.

    If Joe does has not contacted George Karl and made him an offer he cannot refuse by now then that would confirm what a lot of people are saying about him. I have always defended him but that is a no-brainer.  Unless he likes running an irrelevant team but backed into a championship level team.

    The Clippers are the most attractive team for a head coach. The Nets would be the most lucrative. The Nuggets and Grizzlies are the teams with the talent and are playoff contenders, but need an elite coach to get them to the Finals. The Pistons and Bucks (Larry Drew) are looking for a 3-4 year transitional coach. Karl and Shaw will likely sign with the Clippers, Nets, or Grizzlies. Hollins seams the most likely candidate for the Pistons, but it all depends on what offers those coaches get from the top teams with coaching vacancies.

      I think the Pistons could be right there with the teams you named if they use their draft picks and cap space right. They have some talent but just had dumb or stubborn coaches these last few years.
