The Detroit Pistons hired former University of Michigan Wolverines head coach John Beilein earlier this summer as Senior Advisor of Player Development, and he’s putting in work with Detroit’s most valuable young asset.
Per Pistons beat writer Rod Beard, Beilein is working with No. 1 overall draft pick Cade Cunningham on improving his shot:

Beilein was the winningest head coach in Wolverines basketball history and led the team to success on the hardwood that few could equal. Regarded as one of the top bench bosses in college basketball, Beilein led the Wolverines to multiple championship games and numbers accolades.
He then decided to take his talents to the NBA to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers, an ill-fated tenure that ended less than one year into his five-year contract.
