Detroit Pistons Notes, Quotes 2009-05-29
--Joe Dumars does not believe Rodney Stuckey is strictly a point guard. He believes Stuckey needs to be utilized more often as a shooting guard to maximize his ability. He'll be paired more next season with backup point guard Will Bynum. The Pistons also might draft a point guard with the No. 15 overall pick because they think that's the deepest position in this year's draft.

"I don't think Stuckey is a 48-minute-a-game point guard," Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations, said. "I think it's good for him when a guy like Will Bynum comes in, and Stuckey can play off the ball some, too."

--Dumars said he never considered firing head coach Michael Curry even though Curry had a rough first season on the job.

"It was a learning experience for him," Dumars said. "The fact we made so many changes for a first-year coach, I had to step back and be a little more patient than I have been."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "What I've never wanted to do is completely shut the bus down, take the tires off, if you will, and have to rebuild everything from scratch. What we tried to do is make it as painless as possible, but even doing that it's never easy and it's never pain-free." -- Pistons president of basketball Joe Dumars on going through a transition year last season after trading Chauncey Billups.
