Tom Gores Reportedly Reaches Tentative Deal To Buy The Pistons

LONG TIME COMING: In Detroit, Michael Rosenberg writes of the reported deal, "You can be sure there is relief in the halls of the Palace empire. Almost two years have passed since owner Bill Davidson died, and uncertainty and discomfort have dominated at the Palace." Gores "would be wise to look at what went wrong the last two years, and what went right in the decades before that." What made Bill Davidson "such a great owner was that he made his expectations clear, then gave his employees a chance to meet them" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 2/11).
