The Detroit Pistons may be looking at another former player as a head coaching candidate. Multiple reports say the Pistons will interview Phoenix Suns interim coach Lindsey Hunter after they asked the Suns for permission to talk to him, including azcentral sports’ Paul Coro. Hunter, who played with the Pistons from 1993-2000 and from 2003-08, became interim coach of the Suns after they fired Alvin Gentry early in the season. He went 12-29 over the remainer of the season as the Suns finished with the worst record in the Western Conference. Hunter has family in Detroit. The Pistons previously hired former player Michael Curry to coach in 2008, but he was fired after one season (39-43 in 2008-08). The Pistons fired Lawrence Frank after finishing 29-53 this past season, Frank’s second on the job.
