AP Source: Stan Van Gundy Pistons’ coach/president
DETROIT (AP) — A person with knowledge of the details says Stan Van Gundy has agreed to a $35-million, five-year contract to be the Detroit Pistons’ coach and president of basketball operations.
Detroit gave Van Gundy the powerful combination of jobs on Tuesday, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.
The deal was first reported by ESPN.com.
The Pistons announced in April that they were not renewing Joe Dumars’ contract, ending his 14-year run as president of basketball operations.
Van Gundy is taking over a team that has Andre Drummond, one NBA’s top young centers, and money to reshape its roster this summer.
