Stan Van Gundy will be making the calls in Detroit. No roster moves are happening without his stamp of approval, he has the power.
But he needs somebody to handle the day-to-day of being a GM (for example, take the calls from frustrated agents so Van Gundy doesn’t have to).
Stu Jackson, the NBA’s former executive vice president of basketball operations (the guy who handed out the fine), may be that guy, as he will interview for the job, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com.
In case you forgot, Jackson has a good basketball resume, including as coach of the New York Knicks and then Vancouver Grizzlies.
