Pistons cancelled previously planned boycott after being told John Kuester would be fired during All-Star break

Marc Stein of ESPN:

Sources say Pistons vets tried to organize teamwide boycott of shootaround before Detroit’s last game prior to All-Star break vs. Indy

That walkout was called off, sources say, when word reached some of those vets that Kuester would be ousted during All-Star Weekend

That wasn’t the only time the Pistons attempted to show their displeasure with John Kuester. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

Another source, while claiming no direct knowledge of Friday’s issues, said the team did stage a protest in the locker room after a loss before the All-Star break. That person said players walked into the shower area while Kuester was giving his postgame talk. It was not clear how many players took part in that protest.

The Pistons won that game, so he’s obviously talking about  a different game than Stein is.
