AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) Stan Van Gundy the team president has been on the spot this offseason, trying to acquire players who can help Detroit's lineup become a bit more cohesive on the court.
Then it will be up to Stan Van Gundy the coach to decide who plays and how often.
"When you've been where we've been the last few years, everything's open. Everything," Van Gundy said. "You can't go to anybody on our team and tell them that I've promised them anything."
