Detroit to meet former manager Kevin Ollie

The Detroit Pistons are looking for a new manager.

According to Shams Charania, a reporter for The Athletic, Detroit will be meeting with former manager Kevin Olley.

Detroit decided not to stick with manager Dwayne Casey after this season. As former director Casey decided to move to the secretariat, the director’s position became vacant. Since then, active coaches, led by former coach Ime Yuduka, have been mentioned as candidates.

Detroit also decided to meet former coach Ollie. Former coach Ollie has no coaching experience in the NBA. He mainly coached players in college. He was a longtime head coach for the NCAA Connecticut Huskies. He resigned from the University of Connecticut at the end of the 2017-2018 season, but has been coaching the youth since last season.먹튀검증

In 2014, while he was head coach at Connecticut, he won his fourth championship in Connecticut history. At that time, Connecticut defeated the Florida Gators in the semifinals of the Final Four and the Kentucky Wildcats in the final. After the season, Ollie signed a five-year, $14 million contract with Connecticut. He agreed to a sizable contract worth $2.8 million per year, full term.

As a player, he also played in the NBA. He played a part as a backup guard, although he went to and from several teams. Almost every year since his first season, he has been released during the season as well. He didn’t stand out very much, but he was called up to several clubs. From the 1997-1998 season, his first season, to the 2002-2003 season, he was released during the season, and continued his career as a player through a 10-day contract.

After entering his 30s, he spent the most six seasons in Philadelphia, including four seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers. He subsequently put basketball down after spending one season with the Minnesota Timberwolves and one season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. As much as he had the ability to lead young players, it was the result that teams in the process of reorganization or clubs that needed to improve the atmosphere wanted to join him.

After retiring as a player, he joined the coaching staff at Connecticut’s head coach, Jim Calhoun, who was considered one of the best coaches at the time. After manager Calhoun stepped down, he took over the helm of Connecticut. A somewhat dishonorable affair overlapped his resignation as college coach. However, even at the time of serving as his manager, he is evaluated as a person with leadership, such as being mentioned as a coach or manager candidate in the NBA. 

Meanwhile, Detroit has an interview with coach Charles Lee (Milwaukee) in addition to former coach Ollie. They are also expected to contact coach Chris Quinn (Miami) and coach Adrian Griffin (Toronto) if possible.
