The Detroit Pistons have fired coach Maurice Cheeks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Despite back-to-back victories on the weekend, general manager Joe Dumars informed Cheeks of his dismissal on Sunday morning, sources said.
Cheeks didn't make it to the All-Star break of his first season as Detroit's coach. He was in the first year of a two-year contract with the Pistons.
Through 50 games, Cheeks led the Pistons to a 21-29 record.
