06:22 PM ET 05.11 | The Detroit Pistons will interview Knicks assistant Darrell Walker for their head coach opening, bringing their list of official candidates to five after firing Lawrence Frank last month. Walker joins former Blazers coach Nate McMillan, Suns interim coach Lindsay Hunter, Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer and Rockies assistant J.B. Bickerstaff as coaches that have already interviewed for the vacant position. Though the Pistons have struggled in recent years, many analysts consider it a potentially strong landing place for coaching candidates given the young talent on hand. With players like Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond and Brandon Knight, Detroit is clearly a franchise ripe for improvement. A former NBA player, Walker has brief head coaching experience with the Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards from the late 1990's. Teams struggled under his watch, recording a 56-113 record.

Is J. B. Bickerstaff the 3rd base coach in Denver?

It Doesn't Hurt To Try, Bro.

Pistons are clueless. If Walker is Phil's guy, they'll be searching for a new coach next season.

Lindsay Hunter would be a good fit. Toughness, Defense, Tenacity all aspects this young Detroit team needs instilled in it.

Didn't this team once "beat" the Lakers to win a championship?
