Tellem will be charged with big picture issues – negotiating future TV contracts, assisting PS&E and Pistons owner Tom Gores in exploring ways to grow business interests in the area and other responsibilities. But Tellem brings more than 30 years of contacts in the NBA and Van Gundy can see a scenario where a former client calls Tellem to get an opinion on the Pistons organization. And Van Gundy will take that help. “I would think they’d have great trust in him,” Van Gundy told the Free Press. “It’s certainly an advantage. There’s no question about that.”

“The decision to change careers was in one sense a difficult one, because I am leaving a terrific job with great clients and an outstanding leader in Casey Wasserman, who I believe runs the finest sports marketing and talent company in the business,” Tellem said. “But in another sense it was an easy decision, because I am joining another great organization with an outstanding leader in Tom Gores, who is committed to ensuring Palace Sports & Entertainment is a championship organization both on the court and in the community.”
