It's been a waiting game for news on Stan Van Gundy's future with the Pistons since the season ended.

Van Gundy, the team's president and head coach, has been meeting with owner Tom Gores for two weeks.

Tonight, there is news.

"Gores wants Stan Van Gundy to return as coach for the final year of his contract," ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

There is an asterisk, though.

Gores wants Van Gundy to make changes to his front office. Wojnarowski points out that notably includes "the future role of general manager Jeff Bower."

Van Gundy is entering the final year of his five-year contract with the Pistons. The Pistons missed the playoffs for the second straight season this year.
