One of (Pistons interim head coach John) Loyer’s bigger challenges internally was keeping point guard Brandon Jennings engaged after (Maurice) Cheeks was fired.
Loyer said he ultimately went to Jennings to encourage the guard to rediscover joy in the game.  He said he appreciated how Jennings responded.
“There are some guys who are affected by both things (the Cheeks firing and, earlier this week, the reassignment of former team president Joe Dumars), so you try to get them back on path.  I thought Brandon, the path he has taken is a winning-type path, and I’ve really enjoyed coaching him.”
