Don Chaney was named Detroit's coach, replacing Ron Rothstein, who was fired a week ago after one season when the Pistons failed to reach the NBA playoffs for the first time in a decade. This is the third head-coaching job for Chaney, who was an assistant to Rothstein. He coached the Clippers for two-plus seasons and the Houston Rockets for most of four.

Ron Rothstein, whose team failed to make the playoffs for the first time in 10 years, was fired Monday as coach of the Detroit Pistons. Don Chaney, an assistant who once coached the Houston Rockets and Clippers, is considered a leading candidate to succeed Rothstein. Rothstein's biggest problem was Dennis Rodman, who probably will be traded, the Pistons said. The moody forward sat out all of training camp, a West Coast trip and a total of 20 games because of suspensions or vague injuries.

The Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets should be no strangers to their new coaches. Today, the Pistons are expected to name Ron Rothstein, a former Detroit assistant who worked as a Piston broadcaster last season. Rothstein was head coach of the Miami Heat from 1988-91. Wednesday, the Nuggets hired Dan Issel, and the Rockets decided to retain interim coach Rudy Tomjanovich.

Ron Rothstein was named to replace Chuck Daly as coach of the Detroit Pistons, inheriting a team in turmoil. Dennis Rodman, the league's rebounding champion, has threatened to refuse to play for Rothstein. Rodman still hasn't gotten over the loss of Daly, who resigned two weeks ago. Rodman apparently believes Daly, who gave him a chance to star in the NBA when nearly everyone else passed him over, was undermined by the presence of Rothstein on the Pistons' TV broadcast team this season.
