Stan Van Gundy Is Reportedly Getting PAID by the Detroit Pistons


Stan Van Gundy and the Pistons are near finalizing a five-year, $35 million contract, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. The deal would make Van Gundy Detroit’s head coach, as well as president of basketball operations. It’s really a fascinating decision: He chose more individual power, and presumably more job security and money, over a vastly superior chance to win immediately in Golden State.

Pour one out for the loss of his fantastic appearances on Dan Le Batard’s radio show.
