Stan Van Gundy
“I have no idea what was different tonight,” the coach said.
Champ: Stan Van Gundy for pulling off the trade for Reggie Jackson. Chump: Tayshaun Price for sounding like he doesn’t want to play in Detroit.
Van Gundy knows that Prince, a former Detroit Piston whom the team brought back Thursday in a deadline deal, wanted a buyout this season.
Van Gundy expressed excitement about what will happen as the young players mature collectively.
Jennings had been the starter; now Van Gundy has essentially named Jackson to that role not just this season but in the future as well.
“Tyrone Corbin is a class act,” Van Gundy said. “He’s being treated very, very poorly.”
“I feel bad for him, but I’m not going to stand up here and say that’s the reason,” Van Gundy said. “We’ve got good enough players to win.”
Tired of the revolving chair of head coaches in Auburn Hills, the Pistons invested heavily in Stan Van Gundy, giving him unprecedented control in the front office.
“If you’re continuing to play really well, it changes the way you look at it,” Van Gundy said Wednesday.
