DETROIT (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations tells The
Associated Press that Detroit and Avery Johnson have ended talks about filling the Pistons' head coaching vacancy.

The person, who spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because
the talks were private, says the two sides could not agree on the length of a contract and the salary.

The person also says the team has narrowed their search to Cavaliers assistant John Kuester and Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeu. The team had been interested in former NBA coach Doug Collins.

The Pistons fired Michael Curry as coach last week after one year on the bench.
