Updated Odds on the Pistons’ next coach

Doug Collins has removed his name from consideration, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Avery Johnson: 85 percent

From Stein:

That would appear to leave an unobstructed path to the job for ex-Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson, who just completed his first season in TV as an analyst for ESPN.

Sources close to the situation told ESPN that Johnson had his first substantive discussion with Dumars about the position earlier Wednesday.

John Kuester: 8 percent

Nothing has changed since the previous odds. He still has no NBA head-coaching experience.

Bill Laimbeer: 6 percent

Would he make sense as an assistant under Johnson?

Other: 1 percent

No names besides the aforementioned have surfaced.
