    As I said before, I expect to draft Michael Carter-Williams ... That's the only possible scenario where I can see this signing being, somehow, productive.

    Did anyone else notice the irony? 3 of the last 4 Piston coaches are now Mo, Larry, and Curry...

    I'm gonna take and wait and see approach with this one. I like him as far as developing the guards go, but let's not neglect Drummond and Monroe either because they are the core of the team. Hopefully, he brings in an assistant coach that has a history of developing bigs.

    Initially, this seems like a lateral move. The success of Cheeks will ultimately depend on the hand he is dealt by Joe Dumars and Co.

    Fresh off the scrap heap. Owners change, but the coaches price remains the same.

    The Pistons are like a fat chick searching for a date. Only the desperate need apply.

    What would the team have to have done to make less of a splash than this?

    I hope Gores doesn't get fined for taking away from the NBA Finals.

    We can only hope that it was he and not Scott Brooks that was the brains behind Durant and Co rise to the top. Not sure who his assistant coaches were in Phily. but lets hope they are doers and not just hallway coaches.
