Could Mike Woodson replace John Kuester as the Detroit Pistons’ coach?


In the middle of a solid column worth a read anyway, Terry Foster of The Detroit News reported the Pistons might be interested in Mike Woodson:

"Keep an eye out on former Hawks coach Mike Woodson. He’s always been a favorite among Pistons management, even when he was an assistant under Larry Brown. He is a defensive-minded coach and a little more bullish than Kuester."

My gut feeling is I’d be OK with this. Woodson wouldn’t be a slam-dunk hire, but I think he got a semi-raw deal in Atlanta. On the other hand, how much respect would another former Larry Brown assistant generate in the Detroit locker room?
