Pistons Expected To Consider Charles Lee, Adrian Griffin, Ime Udoka, Chris Quinn For Next Coach
With Dwane Casey leaving coaching to head to the Detroit Pistons front office, the team will have to fill a vacancy on the sidelines. Casey was the Pistons head coach for the last five seasons.
Detroit is expected to consider Charles Lee, Adrian Griffin, Ime Udoka and Chris Quinn for their next head coach.
Lee is currently a Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach under Mike Budenholzer. Lee has been finalist for several head coaching opportunities over the last few years.
Griffin is an assistant coach to Nick Nurse in Toronto. He’s also been a finalist for several head coaching jobs in the past. Griffin could also be under consideration in Toronto, should Nurse leave the Raptors.
Udoka led the Boston Celtics to the 2022 NBA Finals in his first year as their head coach. He was suspended for one year shortly before this season began, due to workplace misconduct. Udoka and Boston have since parted ways, and he’s now free to pursue other coaching opportunities.
Quinn has been a long-time assistant under Erik Spoelstra with the Miami Heat. As a former player, he’s been considered a rising start among the assistant coach ranks.
