Sources said Adrian Griffin, who interviewed for the Pistons’ coaching job, could be promoted to lead assistant. It’s not certain that Adams’ spot will be replaced on staff. Assistant video coordinator Daisuke Yoshimoto is well-regarded within the organization and league. Chicago Tribune

CSNNW.com has learned that the Orlando Magic and new head coach Jacque Vaughn asked for permission to interview Griffin for their lead assistant position to which the Bulls denied the request. Apparently, the Bulls are only allowing him to interview for head coaching positions. Most of the time, a lead assistant role is the final step in becoming a legitimate head coaching candidate. Again, that's not always the path. However, a lead job for Griffin would most definitely be a step in the right direction. CSNNW.com
