It is being reported that the Suns interim head coach Lindsey Hunter has asked permission from the team to interview for the head coaching vacancy in Detroit, following the Pistons firing Lawrence Frank last Thursday right after their disappointing 29-53 season came to an end.


This isn’t suprising seeing that Hunter’s advocate in managment, general manager Lance Blanks parted ways with the team Monday, and while Hunter was still in the running ro the full-time coaching position, he probably wanted to go back to Detroit where he played for 12 seasons in two stints of his 17-year NBA career.
