Win or lose, Stan Van Gundy insists his current job as the Detroit Pistons’ head coach and president of basketball operations will be his final job in the NBA.
Van Gundy is in the first year of a five-year contract with the Pistons, and he emphasized that he’s open to remaining with the Pistons in the same role after the contract expires at the end of the 2018-19 season.
“I promised my wife,” he said. “I wanted one more shot at it. I’ve got a great owner. I’ve got a great situation with great tradition, and I should be able to get it turned around in the time that he’s given me. If I don’t, I don’t. But I should be able to. But this’ll be the last one.”
Later, he added, “That’s the last move we’re going to make.”
