Stan Van Gundy is out in Detroit as both the head coach and president of basketball operations. The Pistons organization now is in the positon of playing catch-upon filling two gigantic holes in their organization.
One name to keep an eye on is former player and current TNT analyst Brent Barry, according to ESPN. Barry has been floated as a candidate to move into a front office role for the past few months.
The Golden State Warriors even got so far as attempting to hire Barry as a scout last summer but couldn’t work out a deal given his contractual obligations as a TV analyst.
Adrian Wojnarowski indicates any interest in Barry is not to fill the highest level executive positions — president of basketball operations or general manager.
It is unlikely that a potential Detroit-Barry partnership would be for the role of President of Basketball Operations, league sources tell ESPN. Tom Gores and Arn Tellem are expected to pursue an experienced front office executive to run basketball operations. https://t.co/PO1z2jhYIN— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 7, 2018
