Kuester Has Reached out to Hamilton
Pistons coach John Kuester says he has reached out to Richard Hamilton, who has been held out of the team's last seven games.
He didn't say how or when, but Kuester told the media that he tried to make a connection with Hamilton.
"We made overtures and one of the things that's important is he is somebody that's on our team now," said Kuester.
"We know that and we've reached out to him. I'll tell you this right now, like what I said before; we're searching and we've got a nice run right now with the players that we have and they've done a real good job and unfortunately somebody had to probably be out of the mix right now. But that doesn't mean you're going to totally be out of the mix."
Hamilton might be needed and Kuester will need to mend fences with Detroit's injuries and a trade not on the horizon.
