BREAKING: Detroit Pistons Preparing Massive Monty Willians Offer


The Detroit Pistons are preparing a big offer in pursuit of Monty Williams to be their next head coach according to reports by Shams Charania and James L. Edwards III of the Athletic.

It was later reported the offer will be around $10 million a year which would be second most in the NBA. He would trail only Greg Popovic who was paid $11.5 million for the 2022 season.

The Pistons have continued pursuing Williams despite reports they’d no longer go all in after falling in the draft lottery. The big money approach for the big fish on the market is how they landed former coach Dwane Casey. Coming off coach of the year the Pistons were able to woo Casey with a top 10 salary offer.

@DetroitKoolAid’s Take

My selfish hope was for the draft lottery reports to be false. What kind of organization trying to improve should diminish their chances even more than the lottery results? The Pistons should operate as any team seeking to have success.

“Winning” was the common theme of season ending media sessions from Troy Weaver to the players. This was the same refrain to start the season before injuries derailed their hopes of competing every night. But if healthy, why shouldn’t the expectations both on the court and in the front office be about winning?

It is time to see Weaver’s draft picks like Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren lead this team. They just need the right coach which many observers believe is Monty Williams.

What do you think?
