Van Gundy's job was in question after Detroit missed the playoffs this season even after trading for Blake Griffin.
The team reportedly wanted to make some changes to the front office, but Van Gundy was resistant to those changes, which ultimately resulted in this decision.
The Pistons only made the postseason one time in four seasons under Van Gundy, being swept in the first round by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. That was the only winning season he had.
In total, Van Gundy went 152-176 in four seasons with Detroit.Back to the Detroit Pistons Newsfeed
