Well, this is awkward.

The Detroit Pistons have reportedly fired head coach Mo Cheeks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports. While the move seems like one the team would quickly notify the players about, that simply wasn't the case.

Both Brandon Jennings and Charlie Villanueva apparently found out about their team letting go of Cheeks over Twitter, and they both tweeted their surprise over the move.

The Pistons are currently just 21-29, but they're also a half-game back of the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference currently held by the Charlotte Bobcats.
