-Apparently Mark Jackson, recently hired by the Golden State Warriors, was Dumars' #1 priority. Kelvin Sampson (yes, that Kelvin Sampson), Bill Laimbeer, Isiah Thomas, Lawrence Frank, and former Detroit assistant Mike Woodson were interviewed or contacted. I also read that that Lamb and Zeke were courtesy interviews and not considered real candidates (Joe probably doesn't want to risk his and the franchise's relationships with them), which surprises me in RE: to Bill and Jackson, for the latter has had no head coaching experience on any level.
-Ben Wallace is likely coming back for another season. He is under contract, but he is 36, and his body has been banged up, so we'll keep an eye out on this one.
-Pistons have worked out, to my knowledge, the following draft prospects: PG Talor Battle, PG Kemba Walker, G Alec Burks, G Malcolm Delaney, PF Rick Jackson, G Jacob Pullen, PF Jamie Skeen, C Greg Smith, FC Bismack Biyombo, PF Tristan Thompson, and more that I will update later.
Moar to come. I'll pop back in to discuss the coaching search, potential roster changes, and the draft.
