“The team held a meeting to address recent concerns surrounding the conflicts between the players and coach John Kuester, but it’s not known how guard Rodney Stuckey will be handled.
Stuckey was benched by Kuester in the second half of Wednesday’s game against the Hawks, after apparently ignoring Kuester’s attempts to get his attention. Kuester declined to say how that matter would be handled. It was not known if Stuckey would play Friday night against the Bobcats.
“It’s handled internally,” Kuester said. “Guys did a real nice job of voicing their opinions. Right now, we just have to get a win.”
Stuckey declined comment from another media member.
Veteran Tayshaun Prince said it was important to clear things up now, especially in the midst of the team’s worst start in nearly 30 years. Prince said issues like this shouldn’t fester, and it creates a negative perception.” Via Vincent Goodwill – The Detroit News
