And though Dumars isn't in charge now, Laimbeer says it's pretty much WNBA or bust as far as his coaching career is concerned. "I'm hunting right now," Laimbeer said. "I live in Florida full-time. In the winter-time, I'll be down there fishing and playing golf. But I enjoy coaching, and I'll probably try to get back in the WNBA down the road. "I think the NBA has passed me by. I'm 57. And it'd take a while to be a head coach and I'm not going to be a lifer assistant. If it doesn't happen, I'm going to be retired and hang out." Detroit Free Press

The Pistons move on with Stan Van Gundy as head coach and president of basketball operations, and Laimbeer is optimistic he will succeed in Detroit. "I think he's going to be successful. He's the coach and the head of the operations so the players can no longer go around the head coach as they have for the past 10-12 years in that franchise," Laimbeer told Foster. "That in itself is a positive. He brings a new fresh air of competitiveness. There's some rebuilding to do with the fan base, no question about that, but he's a grinder and he'll get through it."

Vincent Goodwill: Jennings is out with a sore Achilles. Limited use for Monroe. Augustin, Martin, Singler, Smith and Drummond starters. #Pistons Twitter @vgoodwill

Vincent Ellis: Dinwiddie (knee) will be limited to 15-20 min. Won't see much of Monroe tonight as SVG preparing for his 2-game suspension to start season Twitter @Vincent_Ellis56

Stan Van Gundy took a question about the Detroit Pistons' vote on NBA draft lottery reform and turned it into a compelling lobby against maximum individual salaries for NBA players, which he deemed anti-competitive for elite players and teams alike. "They don't say to Bruce Springsteen, 'You can only get 25 percent of the proceeds and 75 percent's got to go to the E Street Band.' I mean, that's not the way it works," Van Gundy said Wednesday.

"If it were more of a free-market system, I think things would change," Van Gundy said. "I think you'd see greater parity in the league -- especially having the (salary) cap and no individual max." Booth Newspapers
