pistons coaching interviews

Lindsey Hunter and Nate McMillan have different coaching resumes.

Hunter, 42, is a relative coaching neophyte, with only 41 games under his belt.

McMillan, 48, has 101/2 seasons and five playoff appearances to his credit.

But there is one similarity — they are former players known for toughness they displayed during their playing careers.

And there is a thought that playing experience is helpful in navigating the pitfalls coaches face.

Both candidates have interviewed for the Pistons’ vacant head-coaching position — Hunter on Monday and McMillan on Tuesday.
