Default Pistons fire Curry as coach after just one season

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons fired coach Michael Curry on Tuesday as the team started rebuilding from an unpopular trade, a sub-.500 record and an embarrassing first-round exit from the playoffs that ended its six-year streak of making it to the conference finals.

The Pistons went 39-43 and were swept in the postseason in four lopsided losses to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Joe Dumars, the team's president for basketball operations, said after that series that Curry would return, but changed his mind about the fate of his former Pistons teammate.

Another ex-Pistons player and former Dumars teammate, Bill Laimbeer, stepped down in June as coach of the WNBA's Detroit Shock, saying he wanted a shot at coaching in the NBA. Laimbeer did not immediately respond to an e-mail message seeking comment.

i thought it was odd that Laimbeer would just step down from coaching the Shock, but this makes sense. I think he will be the next coach of the Pistons.
