The Detroit Pistons have made a significant change to their current coaching staff. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, assistant coach Fred Vinson is being added to help the Pistons under head coach Monty Williams. Reports have been surfacing that the front office has been pondering ideas on what is best moving forward for the coaching regime.

Vinson has spent the past 14 years of his NBA career as an assistant coach for the New Orleans Pelicans. He was hired to their franchise in 2010-11. Vinson is widely respected as a coach with a high expertise in improved shooting. The Pistons finished 25th in the league in three-point shooting hitting a 34.8% average for the season.

With lots of the team's hopes relying on the shooting development of Isaiah Stewart, Jaden Ivey, and Ausar Thompson, Vinson's hire could not have come at a better time. The proof behind Vinson's impact is clear for the Pelicans. New Orleans shot 38.3% from the long line as a team last season which ranked fourth among the NBA. The shooting improvement was validated in team success as well finishing with seventh in the Western Conference with a 49-33 record.

Pistons need a change

Detroit's 14-68 finish has warranted a need for change for this young franchise. The infamous 28-game losing streak became an all-time league worst showing how much immediate improvement was necessary. Team owner Tom Gores promised change for the franchise after setting that infamous record and the hiring of Vinson is the latest alteration.

Williams and Vinson have history dating back to 2010 when they were both on the Pelicans' staff. Williams was let go in 2015 but Vinson survived the regime change to continue helping.

As NBA Free Agency and the NBA Draft are approaching, the Pistons are looking to solidify their front office and coaching openings beforehand. Vinson will have a major role in lifting the spacing and shooting troubles in Detroit. Already having a proven coach with Vinson's credentials could also be beneficial when attempting to sign free agents. Langdon having the ability to adding winning pieces to his staff could show veterans on the market the Pistons are serious about turning in a winning direction.

Considering the team's struggles last season and the firing of Troy Weaver, speculation pointed to the Pistons possibly moving on from Williams as head coach. After adding one of his former assistants, this could show they are willing to give Williams a little more time to help change the momentum for Detroit.
