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.

I like McMillan. Of course there's a big part of me that would like to see Kidd get an interview now that he's retired.

Kidd would be a great coach for our team in my opinion... Unproven, obviously, but is fundamentally elite and knows what it takes to win. Not to mention would be the BEST mentor for Brandon Knight...

Absolutely. Whatever team ends up with him is going to be set for a while. I would imagine he'll become an assistant first, but for him it won't take long to get offers.

I could see potential there, but I actually see him going to work for a network like ESPN, Fox, etc. He's probably more the type that will spend some time with his family for a bit.

It sounds like it's Cheeks:

Maurice Cheeks will be offered an opportunity to lead the Detroit Pistons out of a half-decade's malaise. The Pistons have settled on Cheeks as their top choice to become the franchise's 33rd head coach, according to sources, after he interviewed extensively with both owner Tom Gores and president of basketball operations Joe Dumars.
