Detroit Pistons hire John Beilein in player development role

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Pistons hired John Beilein as a senior adviser for player development Wednesday, saying the hope is that the former NBA and Michigan coach can help the young team "maximize its potential."

Owner Tom Gores credited coach Dwane Casey for the decision to add the 68-year-old Beilein.

"There is nothing more important to our franchise right now than the growth and development of our players," Gores said. "Having spent time with John, we all know he is one of the best teachers in the game of basketball at any level. "
