It’s official Michel Curry is The Pistons new Head Coach.
“The Associated Press reports the Pistons have hired assistant coach and former player Michael Curry as their new head coach.
The Pistons have scheduled a news conference for noon tomorrow at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Curry was an assistant on Flip Saunders’ staff last season, his first stint as a coach of any kind.
Last Tuesday, president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said at that news
conference that the team would move quickly on hiring a new coach.
According to the Associated Press, Curry agreed to a three-year deal worth $2.5 million a year guaranteed with the team holding the option for a fourth season.
A former co-captain for the Pistons, Curry played in Detroit from 1996-97 and 1999-2003. He’s a former teammate of Dumars and several current Pistons, including Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince.” Via The Detroit Free Press
I know many of you be a little weary of Joe hiring someone that hasn’t been a head coach in the league yet. Plenty of you were calling for Avery Johnson, but Joe built this team and obviously knows what will work best for them (or let’s hope he does.)
Like I said before, I have been on the Joe D. bandwagon since the 80′s and I’m not getting of now.
I would like to know your opinion.
