They can still at least make the playoffs if they turn Monroe into a perimeter shooter and a point guard who can run the pick-and roll. It sounds like Dumars is doing everything he can to stick with this three-big thing, though.

@ChrisWoj? @bball2223? @Jwick? @RollWithEm?

Who do you guys think the Pistons will put as interim coach? Nobody has been named yet. And who do they try to go for next season?
They should make Rasheed interim head coach. He could set a new technicals record in the second half of the season.

In all seriousness, though, why not Henry Bibby?

A lot of people talking about Dumars making Cheeks a scapegoat here - but all I've heard so far is that this decision came from the top, and Dumars has been on the Cheeks bandwagon all year. The fact that Gores made this decision against Dumars' will, and the fact that they're promoting an unproven assistant into the interim role shows Dumars isn't long for this job. He's out.

Lionel Hollins came right out and said he is interested in the job, but that nobody from Detroit had reached out to contact him.

I don't understand this at all. The biggest issue in Detroit is - nobody wants to coach this team. Joe Dumars has run through coaches so fast that you can't bring in a respected name. Lionel Hollins is a fantastic NBA head coach, and they haven't even reached out to him? What the hell.
