Rumors have been running wild since the NBA Draft regarding the Detroit Pistons coaching staff. After today's summer league contest against the Boston Celtics, a familiar face is being brought in to help new head coach Maurice Cheeks.
Detroit fan favorite Rasheed Wallace has signed a two-year deal to become an assistant coach for the Pistons according to Detroit News columnist Vincent Goodwill.
No official announcement has been made yet, but Wallace made an appearance at the Amway Center in Orlando on the Pistons' bench.
Detroit traded for Wallace in 2004 adding a major piece to their championship run. After 2009, he bounced between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks to then conclude his 16-year playing career.
Wallace's main focus on Detroit's bench will focus on the development of young big men Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe.
