NBA | Pistons flipping the roster?

Quote:
By From Seattle Times wire services

DETROIT Now the speculation begins. Will Flip Saunders stay or go?

Or a more pointed question: Is the Pistons' coach already gone?

The morning after the Pistons fell to the Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, players and coaches gathered their things, held informal meetings and left the practice facility for the final time this season and possibly ever.

Hours later, the perceived top candidate to replace Saunders emerged. Assistant coach Michael Curry talked briefly about his future with the Pistons, but said he didn't speak about the top job with team executives Saturday morning.

There was no grand speech, no final word on their loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals. Players didn't meet with team president Joe Dumars for exit interviews, and Saunders didn't say anything to reporters.

What's there to say? As the Pistons themselves finally admit, there was no excuse for what happened. They lost because they weren't good enough. Now the question is how to get better. Two possible ways.

Relying more on a young core, with point guard Rodney Stuckey, forwards Jason Maxiell and Amir Johnson.

Overhauling the veteran core or making a coaching switch to take a very good team to a championship level.

Notes

Detroit point guard Chauncey Billups is scheduled to begin workouts for the U.S. Olympic team at the end of June. Whether that happens depends on his hamstring. If he's not 100 percent healthy, he said he'd stay out of the competition.

Spurs star Manu Ginobili expects his injured ankle to be healed for the Olympics, allowing him to play for defending champion Argentina.

Terry Porter is expected to be interviewed for a second time by the Phoenix Suns later this week.
