Lawerence Frank and Maurice Cheeks didn’t get the Pistons playing at a palatable level, but then again Joe Dumars wasn’t making matters any easier.

The lack of direction the past few seasons left the Pistons looking for someone who could not only build a respectable roster, but get the players to buy into a system.

Enter Stan Van Gundy who will serve as the president of basketball operations and head coach.

Wearing two hats can be difficult, but I have confidence in the guy who has an overall coaching record of 371-208 and has taken his squad to the playoffs every time he’s had a full season to work with.
