Pistons to interview Darrell Walker

It doesn’t matter whom the Pistons interview. It matters only whom they hire.

Whew. I think repeating that five times is enough for this news. Marc Stein of ESPN:

Sources say that Knicks assistant coach Darrell Walker will soon get an interview for the position vacated by Lawrence Frank.

When news broke of the Pistons’ interest in Walker, I didn’t assume he’d get an interview, but I guess his candidacy is on that level. I still don’t consider him anywhere near likely to get the job, but he should probably be taken more seriously as a potential replacement for Lawrence Frank.

Walker is a Knicks assistant, so the Pistons might have to wait to interview him until New York is eliminated for the playoffs, though different teams have different policies about that. I hope they wouldn’t delay their search solely to interview Walker, but the Pistons don’t sound close to making a hire anyway.

Detroit has been planning its offseason for months, and this is a dead period for pre-draft evaluations. So, I’m pleased with what appears to be an in-depth coaching search – as long as high-profile candidates like Nate McMillan and Mike Budenholzer remain a central part of it.
