Report: Stan Van Gundy to meet with Pistons' owner next week




 

After a disappointing 39-43 season that has the Pistons sitting at home watching the playoffs - even after trading for Blake Griffin mid-season, - the sense around the league is that coach and GM Stan Van Gundy is going to lose one if not both of those titles. He's expected to no longer be the team's president of basketball operations, whether he stays on to coach the team is another question.

The meeting where Van Gundy's fate is decided will come next week, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at ESPN.

Feuling the speculation on Van Gundy's status is the fact that former super agent Arn Tellem works for the Pistons on the business side. He was brought in to help transition the franchise to the new building where it plays in downtown Detroit, but with that done the sense is Gores will give him a different job, running the basketball side.

If he loses his GM title, would Van Gundy stay on as coach?

Whoever sigs in the big chair has his work cut out for him. With that Griffin trade, the Pistons are basically capped out. Making changes to the current roster will not be easy.
