After falling short of expectations two seasons in a row with the Phoenix Suns, Williams finds a new home in Detroit. While the Suns were never able to win the Finals under him, Williams does bring a winning resume to a young and developing Detroit team. He’ll look to develop Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, Jalen Duren and the rest of the young Pistons players into a team capable of playoff success.
