Per Detroit Free Press. Billionaire Tom Gores has struck a tentative deal with Davison, the announcement can come as soon as Friday. This decision was apparently reached Thursday night. One of the biggest looming issue is whether or not Dumars is retained. I know that there are a lot of pros and cons regarding this situation. I am a Dumars banner waver, even though his last few aquisitions are head scratchers. Those decisions in my opinion cannot/should not minimize his overall accomplishments. Only time will tell Dumars fate as well as the fate of the team including the coaches. I think that a trade will be made before the deadline without specifically worrying about salary implications. The league of course will have to approve the sale, however this does not prevent Gores from making personnel moves. Approval form the NBA is simply a technicality.
