Odds on the next coach: Avery Johnson is out, Kuester likely in


UPDATE: The Pistons are close to reaching a deal with John Kuester, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

Joe Dumars says Avery Johnson is no longer being considered, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News.

John Kuester: 90 percent

Kuester is next in line after Johnson, according to Stein. It’s hard to see him passing on the job.

Tom Thibodeau: 9 percent

Dumars said Thibodeau or Kuester will probably be the next coach, according to McCosky.

Other: 1 percent

If Kuester and Thibodeau are really the top choices, it’s hard to see one of them not getting the job.
