It is an NBA where great managers are hardened one after another and shock continues. Nick Nulls, Mike Budenholzer, and Monty Williams, all of the NBA’s representative masters came to the market.
Their focus is on Milwaukee, Phoenix, Toronto and Philadelphia. They are teams whose masters have been sacked, and their power is already at a high level, so it is evaluated that they can immediately enter the competition for the championship next season if they appoint a manager well.
On the other hand, there is a team that is in the same situation as them, but does not receive any attention at all. The Detroit Pistons also cleaned up their manager as soon as the season ended, but there is no link. Unlike the strong teams mentioned above, this is because they are the lowest ranked team with a win rate of 20.7% last season with 17 wins and 65 losses.
Detroit has several prospects, including first-choice prospect Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, Jaylen Duren, and James Wiseman. It looks like there are resources to shape the future. But the coaches don’t want to go to Detroit. With managerial positions vacant at Milwaukee, Phoenix, Toronto and Philadelphia, there is no reason to go to the bottom team.
According to the coverage of ‘RealGM’, Williams, who was recently sacked from Phoenix, was immediately offered the Detroit manager’s job. Detroit is said to have made plans to entrust manager Williams with fostering after appointing Victor Wembanyama in the 2023 draft. In fact, he received the 5th pick in the draft, but still sent a love call to manager Williams.
However, director Williams said he refused with a single knife. This is the part where you can know their current status.
Unlike other teams that are linked with high-level masters, Detroit narrowed down the final manager candidates to Kevin Ollie, Jaren Collins, and Charles Lee. All of them are coaches with no NBA coaching experience.
