The Detroit Pistons will expand their coaching staff by hiring a shooting coach for next season, head coach and president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy said. The job will be as a full-time traveling assistant and Van Gundy said he hopes to have the specialized coach in place by early July. Van Gundy said the new shooting coach will have no other responsibilities.

Unfortunately, not everyone agrees it’s an issue. In fact, team officials who do may be in the minority. “Change the rule? For what?” asked an Eastern Conference GM who is on the NBA’s Competition Committee. “For DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard? Learn to shoot free throws.” A league source says that almost 80% of this season’s hacking was done to five players: Jordan, Andre Drummond of Detroit and Howard, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey of Houston.
