Pistons President Of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars confirmed in a news conference on Wednesday that head coach Michael Curry will be back in Detroit next season. In his first year leading the perennial championship contenders, Curry coached the Pistons to a 39-43 record this past season, good for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Detroit was quickly swept in the first round of the playoffs by the top-seeded Cavaliers, who won each game by double digits. The swift exit halted the Pistons' streak of six straight trips to the East finals.
