Joe Dumars on Richard Hamilton: ‘If he and I need to sit down and have a long talk, we will’

Joe Dumars spoke with ESPN 96.1 today, and he added fuel to the Richard Hamilton-might-not-really-be-sick fire (hat tip: Justin Rogers of MLive):

I haven’t spoken to Rip since. We had a day off today. They guys were off today. So, I’ll see how Rip is doing tomorrow when he gets in here. He said he wasn’t feeling well yesterday, and he sat out. We got a big win. But whatever issues that I have to deal with, I don’t duck them. Whatever comes up, I deal with it. But Rip has been good for me. I’ll see how he is when he comes in in the morning. If he and I need to sit down and have a long talk, we will. We’ll see how it plays out tomorrow when we get back in here, when everybody’s back in here, coaches and players.

Dumars also talked about the restrictions on him because of Karen Davidson selling the team:

When you sit in this seat, you deal with all kinds of stuff. You really do. And I’d be lying if I sat hear and told you guys that wasn’t a part of it. There’s a financial responsibility that I have to be cognizant of here, and I’ve just got to work around it. There’s no sense of me sitting here and crying about it with you guy. I wake up, I look at it, it is what it is, and I’ve just to go figure out a way to work around it.
