However throughout his tenure within the Motor Metropolis, Detroit has made the playoffs as soon as and was bounced within the first spherical. The Pistons have been a sub-.500 basketball crew in every of the three years that they’ve missed the playoffs underneath Van Gundy, and he’s by no means led Detroit to higher than 44 wins in a season.
With one yr left on Van Gundy’s contract, Pistons proprietor Tom Gores desires to take a seat down and meet with him about his future. The report of the assembly comes by way of Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The Pistons have accrued a 152-176 report throughout Van Gundy’s tenure on the bench and within the entrance workplace. Whereas he’s usually been a very good head coach throughout his time within the NBA — previous to becoming a member of the Pistons, Van Gundy had made the postseason in seven of his eight years as the pinnacle coach of the Warmth and Magic — there are questions on whether or not Van Gundy the manager can keep out of Van Gundy the coach’s approach. It’s potential that Gores believes that may occur, but when not, we may be in for a shake up in Detroit.
