Detroit clinched postseason berths three times in that five-year run in teal and maroon, notably worn by Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Joe Dumars and Ben Wallace. “I think it’s great that people remember some things that we did in that era,” said Stackhouse, whom the Pistons acquired in a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers in 1997. “It wasn’t the glory days. It wasn’t the Bad Boys. It wasn’t the ’04 championship team, but in between that, you had Grant Hill, you had myself, you had Lindsey Hunter and Allan Houston. Terry Mills. You had guys that contributed to taking some ingredients from those Bad Boys.”
Jerry Stackhouse: “I was able to be in the locker room with Rick Mahorn and Joe Dumars. Those guys were men. They taught you how to be a professional. Nothing against Philadelphia, but I was with a lot of young guys. When I got here, that was my first sense that I was around some pros, guys that knew how to go about their business. I learned from them and I was able to share that with other young guys that came through the organization. I think some of those ingredients kind of carried through and we were kind of the bridge between those two eras.”
Stackhouse said there are some similarities between the new roster and the squads of the past. “Cade is super-skilled and he kind of reminds me of Grant Hill,” Stackhouse said. “He can make plays for others, can make plays for himself. This kid, he kind of reminds me of myself, the way that he attacks the basket. I don’t know if I had any point-guard skills (laughs). I’m excited for Saddiq Bey and Stewart. Those guys bring a toughness that really represents Detroit and what we’re about. I think it’s time for them to take that next step.”
The Pistons’ historic teal jerseys are officially back. The franchise announced Monday evening during a launch party at the Renaissance Center that the teal uniform design, worn from 1996-2001, will serve as the team’s Classic Edition uniforms for the 2022-23 season. Monday’s launch party featured an appearance by Pistons great Jerry Stackhouse, who donned Detroit’s popular retro jersey with its signature horse logo in the middle of the design.
Boston Celtics Coach Ime Udoka, New Orleans Pelicans Coach Willie Green and Jerry Stackhouse, who coaches the Vanderbilt University men’s basketball team, have attended the camp. This year’s coaching group included one player from the W.N.B.A.:Marie Ferdinand-Harris, a retired three-time All-Star. The N.B.A. players ranged from those who had brief careers, like Peyton Siva, who appeared in 24 games for the Orlando Magic in 2013-14, to the more established, such as Rodney Hood, who has been in the N.B.A. since 2014.
Brown and Warriors assistant Kenny Atkinson were identified as other potential candidates for the Charlotte position. League sources have also mentioned Jerry Stackhouse, a North Carolina product who is the head coach at Vanderbilt and has long been known to desire an opportunity in the NBA.
