Joe Dumars: Every Piston Is on Trading Block

Flip Saunders was removed as head coach in Detroit on Tuesday, but Joe Dumars claims that he will not be made a scapegoat and that the players will be held responsible for the team’s failure in the Eastern Conference finals again, Larry Lage of the Associated Press writes.

"There are no sacred cows here," Dumars said. "You lose that sacred-cow status when you lose three straight years." [Chicago Tribune]
