The New Orleans Pelicans have signed Stan Van Gundy to fill their head coach vacancy.

The agreement is a four-year deal with the numbers not full disclosed yet.

Van Gundy last coached the Pistons in 2018, and previously with the Dwight Howard led Orlando Magic.

New Orleans has a very talented young core in Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball, and Jrue Holiday.

Van Gundy can certainly get full potential out of his players, and for New Orleans it’s the right fit.
