Lakers assistant coach John Kuester is back on duty on Tuesday. Kuester was appointed to join the Detroit Pistons on July 9, 2009 as their head coach. The 55 year-old entered into an agreement with the Pistons after Avery Johnson’s deal did not fall through with the Pistons. Kuester, a guard player himself who played for the Kansas City Kings, the Denver Nuggets and Indiana Pacers, did not have a successful spell at Detroit and there were reports of player dissatisfaction. Kuester was fired last year on June 5, but was hired by the LA Lakers to assist head coach Mike Brown within that same month he lost his job, making it the second time he is working with Brown as his assistant. In August 2007, Kuester was one of Brown’s staff. “I’m being honest with you: I wish them nothing but the best,” Kuester said. “Hey, coaches get fired all the time in this league, and what you do is move on.” Kuester was excited to get back to work and hopes to do a better job at Lakers. “The one thing about every experience I’ve witnessed having been in this league 22 years, you live and you learn,” he said. “I’m here, in L.A. and continuing to get better as a coach…. I’m so excited about where we are right now, with this team, our team.” [Image Via] YummySports
