Stan Van Gundy
Stan Van Gundy has a busy summer ahead as president of the Detroit Pistons.
“We know how we’re going to work, we know how we want to play … That gives us a big step forward going into next year,” Van Gundy said.
“Andre is a maximum guy,” Gores said, according to the team. “He’s a maximum guy, and he’s not only a great player, he’s a great person.”
“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.”
