Oklahoma City Thunder assistant Mo Cheeks has emerged as the strong frontrunner to become the Detroit Pistons’ head coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Discussions on a contract could begin soon, league sources said.
Detroit’s ownership and management reached a consensus on Cheeks as their choice, league sources said.
I’m completely against hiring Cheeks, but at this point, it looks inevitable. No other team has been reported to courting Cheeks – part of the reason I don’t support the move – so it’s unlikely a deal falls through. It sounds like it’s just a matter of time until they reach a deal in principle.
