Isiah Thomas not a candidate to become the Detroit Pistons’ next head coach

Marc Berman of the New York Post:

The Post also has learned Thomas is not expected to be a candidate for the Pistons’ vacant head-coaching job, despite a report out of Detroit. Two sources told The Post Thomas would not be considered by Pistons president Joe Dumars because Dumars does not want to jeopardize their friendship.

Well played, Joe Dumars. I’m sure your friendship with Zeke is the only reason you don’t want him involved with the Pistons.
