Joe Dumars: I’ve interviewed more coaches than you know about

The Pistons, according to the Detroit Free Press and mostly reported elsewhere previously, have interviewed:

  • Nate McMillan
  • Lindsey Hunter
  • Mike Budenholzer
  • J.B. Bickerstaff
  • Brian Shaw
  • Maurice Cheeks

David Mayo of MLive:

While several of the candidates known to have been interviewed are ex-players, Dumars said the search already has exceeded that scope.

"That’s not all we’ve talked to," Dumars said. "Those are the names that you guys have gotten. But we’ve talked to a lot more than just ex-players, I’m telling you."

Of that group, only Budenholzer and Bickerstaff didn’t play in the NBA. Is Dumars referring to those two? Their interviews were widely reported, so I doubt it.

There are plenty of college coaches who didn’t play in the NBA, so I wonder whether one interviewed with the Pistons. Otherwise, I don’t have much to go on to even make guesses.
