The following statement was released this afternoon by Detroit Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars.

“First of all, John Kuester has my full support as we try to make a push towards the postseason over these last 21 games.  We’ve had a long and proud history of being a first class organization that handles its business the right way.  We expect everyone that represents the Detroit Pistons to do so in a first class manner and that will continue as we move forward.”
