Default Pistons head coach search

It's early June, and while the Pistons don't yet have a coach, they still appear to be dedicated to the "process."

Current Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Maurice Cheeks, who also coached the Portland Trailblazers and Philadelphia 76ers, has visited with Pistons owner Tom Gores in Los Angeles, which was first reported by ESPN and confirmed by The Detroit News.

His recent visit to Auburn Hills qualifies as the third interview for Cheeks but it isn't a direct indication of an endorsement from Pistons president Joe Dumars. Nate McMillan, former coach of the Trailblazers and Seattle Sonics, also met with Gores in Los Angeles earlier.

The timing of Cheeks' meeting was a function of his personal schedule.
