We get into the surprising (to some) decision by the Detroit Pistons to part ways with head coach Monty Williams. Despite a hefty $65 million contract, new management decided it was time for a change.

Fletcher shares his reaction to the move, admitting that he didn't see it coming, though he was never on Team Monty - and gets into the reasons behind Williams' leaving.

The conversation touches on the challenges Williams faced, including re-interviewing for his own job and failing to convince the management of his vision. The duo discusses the mixed reactions from fans and the potential future for Williams, who now has $65 million reasons to be okay with never coaching again.

They also talk some potential candidates for the Pistons' head coach position. Names like JJ Redick and James Borrego come up..

On top of the Pistons' news, we have a quick preview of an international soccer friendly coming to Detroit. Pumas, one of Mexico's top clubs, will face off at Keyworth Stadium, promising a fun match for local soccer fans. https://www.detcityfc.com/international-friendly/
