Pistons hope to take big step under Van Gundy

DETROIT (AP) After five straight seasons without a playoff berth, Joe Dumars' long run as Detroit's general manager came to an end.

Enter Stan Van Gundy, who took over this offseason as coach and team president of the Pistons, a double dose of power and responsibility that could give the franchise some much-needed stability - if Van Gundy can handle both roles.

Van Gundy brings impressive coaching credentials to the job after winning at least 50 games once with the Miami Heat and four times with the Orlando Magic. He takes over a Detroit team coming off back-to-back 29-win seasons, and although the Pistons do have a talented frontcourt, the lineup looked disjointed for much of 2013-14.
