The longer it went, the more clear it became SVG wasn’t going to hang around with a shuffled front office. His departure is best for him and the Pistons.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) May 7, 2018
Sources: One candidate expected to be strongly considered for a role in a revamped Pistons front office -- Brent Barry.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 7, 2018
Strange how the Pistons won’t say “fired.” They just say Stan wanted to return. That’s fired, folks.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) May 7, 2018
Arn Tellem wanted someone else in there. Plain and simple.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) May 7, 2018

Seeing a lot of "well then why did Detroit let SVG make the Blake Griffin deal?" That wasn't nearly as Stan-driven as people think. Everyone was on board with it. Was never some sort of SVG Hail Mary— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) May 7, 2018
Stan Van Gundy made a desperate dice roll for Blake Griffin. Came up snake eyes. The guys who replace Stan The Coach & Stan The GM will have the daunting tasks devising a scheme that'll work for Griffin & Drummond or finding a taker for one of the stars for team to start anew— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) May 7, 2018
Dear Detroit,— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) May 7, 2018
Sorry about taking Kennard over Mitchell, overpaying Reggie Jackson, taking Stanley Johnson over getting four 1sts from Boston, ruining your salary cap with the Blake trade, and leaving you without a 2018 1st. I’m gonna go do TV, I’ll see you later.
For the Pistons the challenge becomes who wants to come in as GM and take on this financial mess? Will they have the stones to ship Andre Drummomd elsewhere? Can we trust Arn Tellum if he’s president or will he just be a Tom Gores “yes man?” Tricky spot— Kyle Bogenschutz (@KyleBogey971) May 7, 2018
