GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Stan Van Gundy and Otis Smith are reuniting with the Pistons – and Detroit’s D-League team is getting a former NBA executive on their bench.
Smith, 50, was introduced Wednesday afternoon as the first head coach in Grand Rapids Drive history. He spent six seasons (2006-2012) as the general manager of the Orlando Magic – the last five of which featured Van Gundy as his head coach.
The Drive’s inaugural season starts in late November. Ticket information can be found at the team’s official website.
