Joe Dumars on a Pistons trade: “Am I close? I hope so”


Joe Dumars spoke with Matt Dery of 97.1 The Ticket last night and indicated a trade might be coming. Dumars said he was five minutes late to the interview because he was on the phone with another team.

"Two conversations I had with teams today, and they say, “You know what? Uh, that might work for us, but, you know, got to go and talk to the owner, got to go and talk to my head coach, and I’ll get back to you. So, you know, am I close? I hope so. I hope so."

I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for a trade, but hopefully this is more than Dumars just appeasing the fans.

Dumars also said John Kuester is not the problem right now.
