Checklist for Fixing Everything Wrong with the Detroit Pistons
Carlos Osorio/Associated Press

The Detroit Pistons are 80 percent through their sixth consecutive losing season. They’re 25-40 and in 11th place in the sorriest of sorry conferences in all of professional sports.

They’re the only team in 2014 to fire their head coach midseason, and to sum up their overall state as a “disastrous mess” wouldn’t be fair to the term “disastrous mess.”

Unless significant changes are made this summer, they’ll be a mess next season and the year after that. Assuming Joe Dumars is no longer calling the shots, however, hope lives for these Pistons to clean things up before another decade is wasted on an aspiration to be average.

Here’s what needs to be done. Everything here should be viewed with urgency, but they're ranked by level of importance.
