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

Stan Van Gundy wants restricted free agent power forward Greg Monroe back in a Detroit Pistons uniform next season. But it’s not that simple. “We want Greg Monroe back, but obviously it’s got to be a mutual thing, too,” Van Gundy, the head coach and president, said today before the Pistons’ third summer-league game against the Miami Heat.

That doesn’t mean he’s not trying, though. Using his connection with Stan Van Gundy, his former head coach with the Orlando Magic and now the head coach and president of basketball operations for Detroit, he got himself an invite to Summer League for a chance to prove himself. Van Gundy guaranteed him nothing in providing the opportunity, but Cook is hoping to make the most of it, if only to show his gratitude to Van Gundy. “He was one of the first guys I called in being a free agent because I’m very comfortable with his offense,” Cook said. “I look back at my career, and he’s one of the few coaches that really cared about me and held me accountable. When you’re young, you don’t realize that. I’ve been at home with my kids and my wife, and I’ve matured during that process. (Van Gundy) gave me a shot to come down here. I’m ready.” Basketball Insiders

Brandon Jennings put on a show at the Drew League in LA this weekend, dropping 57 points and dishing out some pretty sweet assists. After all was said and done, his team won 107-84, and the point guard took off his jersey and laid it in the middle of the court. beyondthebuzzer.com
