Wojnarowski further reports that Van Gundy would consider hiring Otis Smith, the general manager when he was the head coach of the Magic, to be the team’s GM. Van Gundy would get final say over personnel matters however.
Pistons just waiting on Stan's signature now but expectation is he's likely to accept. @WojYahooNBA first reported Detroit's interest in SVG

It appears this is happening.
Sources have told Crossover Chronicles for several years since Van Gundy’s ouster from Orlando that he wanted to get back into coaching but would wait for his children to graduate from high school before doing so. This was further confirmed by a report from Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
This offer might be enough for him to break those plans.
