Pistons Fire Kuester

The Detroit Pistons have fired coach John Kuester. The move Sunday came four days after Tom Gores completed an agreement to purchase the Pistons from Karen Davidson. Kuester was 57-107 over two years with Detroit, which failed to make the postseason in consecutive seasons for the first time since missing it three straight times from 1993-95. Detroit won its third championship in 2004, part of a six-year streak in which the team reached at least the conference finals, but the Pistons went 27-55 in 2009-10 and 30-52 this past season. - San Jose Mercury News
