Stan Van Gundy Rumors
The Detroit Pistons haven’t closed the door to adding a veteran point guard. But with Lorenzo Brown’s Orlando Pro Summer League performance and the need to retain future financial flexibility, team president Stan Van Gundy said Friday that the Pistons’ off-season maneuvering could be concluded. “We’re taking a pretty slow approach to that,” Van Gundy said. “There hasn’t been anybody out there yet we just wanted to jump on with a guaranteed contract.”
Brown’s $1 million contract for next season is fully guaranteed next January. The roster stands at the NBA limit of 15. “It’s very possible that the 15 guys we have now – including Lorenzo – are the 15 guys we’ll go into the season with,” Van Gundy said.
“Re-signing Andre was a top priority for us this offseason,” said President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Stan Van Gundy. “The offensive and defensive numbers speak for themselves, but more importantly, his commitment to the organization has allowed us to put together a young group of players that will grow together and continue to move the franchise forward.”
