Lindsey Hunter will interview for the Detroit Pistons’ vacant head coaching job.
“It’s just an interview, like any other,” said Hunter, who interviewed for the Orlando Magic’s head coaching job last summer. “They (the Pistons) have a coaching opening and I was fortunate that they’d consider me. Hopefully, I’ll continue to gain interest from other people.”
Hunter, 42, served as the Suns’ interim coach this season.
Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said Hunter remains a strong candidate for the full-time job.
“From talking to him, I do feel that way,” Hunter said of Babby’s statement. “I think he still feels I’m a strong candidate. Although Lance and I were really close, I felt like I was equally respected in the organization by all parts. I was hurt for my friend but I wasn’t concerned about anything.”
