Even with Smith, one of the most sought-after free agents on the market, Dumars said he isn’t done with his upgrades. “(We have) a lot more to do,” he said. “We don’t pretend to stand here and feel like we’ve made this move and that’s the answer. You know it’s a long road, and you need multiple talented pieces. We just went out and got one big talented piece, but by no means are we even remotely proclaiming championship contenders — we just feel like we’ve upgraded our talent.” Detroit News

English remains confident that even if the Pistons decide to part ways, he will find a landing spot. “I’m just playing. I think I’ll be in this league a long time with my ability to shoot the ball and defend,” English said. “I’m just staying in the moment, and I’ll keep playing.” Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said Wednesday that no decision has been made on English’s status.

The battles between the Pistons and Bulls came up more than once when Dumars and Jackson spoke. "The things that he and I talked the most about wasn't so much the Piston coaching position," Dumars said. "It was just about coaching in general, his perspective on coaching and coaches in general. It wasn't so much about the Pistons' head job. "We talked about some playoff series that the Pistons and Bulls had. We had some good conversations about that. But it was really about coaching in general. It wasn't about the Pistons job per se." Dumars also spoke with players coached by Cheeks, including former Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace, who played for Cheeks in Portland. "He was colorful," Dumars said, drawing a big laugh from media and employees gathered inside The Palace's West Atrium for the announcement. Booth Newspapers
