Grant Hill is a respected figure in the NBA community. He served the league during two decades and dedicated himself to being the best that he could be. A life in a suit and tie either on the bench or in the front office has been a forgone conclusion. That does not mean that the time is right for him to walk into the vacated general manager’s seat of the Detroit Pistons left hot by the exit of Joe Dumars. Although his name has been mentioned, don’t look for Hill to start brokering deals just yet according to The Detroit News. Hill, though, has told people close to him he won’t consider a front-office position this close to retirement, but down the line when his children get older, he would consider it. Hill is taking the high road and being a family man for a moment and that is to be commended. He figures to make someone a winner at some point. In what capacity that will be remains to be seen. All we need to know at this moment is that he’s pretty comfortable at home. He has deep ties to the Pistons, the Orlando Magic and the Phoenix Suns. When he turns up, look for him to continue his legacy as an executive at one of the stops where he created it as a player.

Detroit Pistons NBA Mock Draft Watch: How About Nik Stauskas?

The Detroit Pistons’ draft plans hinge, first and foremost, on what happens at the May 20 draft lottery.

Pistons' Greg Monroe admits team had chemistry issues

Pistons mascot’s (Hooper’s) five best stunts of 2014 (VIDEO)

YouTube While many (rightfully) questioned the Pistons’ guts and grit on defense this season, the same couldn’t be said for Pistons mascot Hooper.  Mascots wear sweaty smelly suits or armor and throw their bodies around for a few cheap smiles and a small paycheck. Horses don’t ski.  Horses don’t rollerblade.  Horses can’t walk on two feet. Hooper does. Hooper puts his...

ESPN’s 30 for 30: Bad Boys Remembered

What if I told you they used to play defense in the NBA? We are using the term defense lightly.
