Stan Van Gundy gave his most direct assessment to date on Greg Monroe's free agency today, and for the first time admitted he finds some of the uncertainty a bit unnerving. That doesn't change anything, the Detroit Pistons' president of basketball operations and head coach stressed, because the plan is in place no matter what Monroe decides or whose palms sweat in getting there. "There's not really anything going on there right now," Van Gundy said. "There's not really a whole lot more that can go on. We'll just see where the situation takes us. "Look, I'm not sweating it right now, because there's nothing that we can do at this point." Booth Newspapers

The Pistons announced Monday that Wright was leaving the Magic’s organization, where he started in 2006 as an intern. He rose to become the Magic’s director of college scouting. He worked in the organization while Pistons president of basketball operations and coach Stan Van Gundy was coaching the Magic. He jumped at the chance to join him in Detroit. “That was a big draw for me,” Wright said. “Knowing the type of person that he is, the work that he does, his consistency as a person and as a coach was a big draw for me so I get to work with him.” Detroit Free Press
