Report: Pistons will hire Rasheed Wallace as assistant coach


Rasheed Wallace’s temper distracted from the rest of his game. Few saw his advanced post moves, perfect defensive positioning (Game 5 of the 2005 Finals aside) and deft passing.

Rather, most just focused on the technical fouls – though, to be fair, there were a lot of technical fouls.

But Pistons general manager Joe Dumars and new Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks, who coached Wallace in Portland, saw the wise side of Sheed.

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

It hasn’t been announced, but former Piston Rasheed Wallace will join the Pistons’ coaching staff this season.

Wallace strolled into the Amway Center wearing a polo shirt with the Pistons’ team logo on Monday

The Pistons are playing summer league in Orlando, where Wallace was on the Pistons sideline today talking with the team’s young players during their game against the Celtics. I have zero doubt he can dispense helpful advice in that role.

But being an NBA assistant coach is a ton of work, and though Dumars has said he discussed the grind with Wallace, there’s no way of knowing how Wallace will handle it throughout an 82-game season. Going from playing to coaching is an adjustment, and Sheed must also learn how his role in the locker room will change.

At least he’ll be going through this process as an assistant for a team with only playoff aspirations, not in the pressure-packed situation of being the head coach of a contender, like his Knicks teammate last season is doing.

Does the "Rasheed Wallace rule" apply to coaches or is it only players?

Predictable as a coach. His main strategies are:

1) Setting traps on the weak side
2) Denying the low-post entry pass
and
3) Yelling BOOGITY BOOGITY BOO to Dwyane Wade

Can he get suspended if he gets a lot of T's in a season?

that's got to be a record?

that's now 2 players from the 12-13 NY Knicks to become coaches after their last season as a player

I remember when Rasheed was on the Pistons, his teammates all said that Rasheed was a basketball genius. When they were asked who they could see as a coach, they said Rasheed. You would never be able to tell by the way he just jacks up 3s and acts on the court. Lol.

Can' wait for him to lead the league in Ts and ejections from coaches. Should be some good entertainment. Glad Sheed is staying in the league, he's always good for a soundbite.

Is it bad that I'd take him as our head coach over MDA?
