Pistons’ Van Gundy Offers Smith Clean Slate

on

However, a new coach offers a new slate. (Stan) Van Gundy said he traveled to Atlanta last week to have lunch with (Josh) Smith.

“I thought it was a great conversation. Josh is a smart guy. He knows what it takes to win in this league,” Van Gundy said. “He’s capable of doing all those things. We talked about a lot of things in terms of his game, what he thinks his strengths are, where I see it going and the whole thing, and I came away very encouraged that Josh is enthusiastic about the year and excited to get going.”

Van Gundy realizes Smith is potentially the best two-way player on the roster. And if he isn’t moved in the off-season, he will seek to use those talents.
