How to Watch Detroit Pistons Bring JB Bickerstaff On as Head Coach

The Detroit Pistons will officially introduce JB Bickerstaff as the team’s new head coach at a press conference on Wednesday.

Bickerstaff was officially named the new Pistons coach a week ago and is expected to replace Monty Williams, who was fired after just one season when his team finished with the worst record in the NBA (14-68).

Bickerstaff will make a short-term move to the north side of Lake Erie after spending the past 4½ seasons as coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers fired him after the team lost to the eventual NBA champion Boston Celtics in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Bickerstaff built a reputation for helping young players develop after successfully developing Darius Garland and Evan Mobley in Cleveland before being waived in favor of Kenny Atkinson. Bickerstaff will be in charge of another young team without much success, the Cade Cunningham-led Pistons.
