Van Gundy leaving ESPN, joining Turner Sports with Nash

Current NBA analyst Stan Van Gundy served as head coach and president of basketball operations with the Pistons.

Former NBA coach and current analyst Stan Van Gundy is leaving ESPN for Turner Sports, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.

Van Gundy, 59, will join former NBA point guard Steve Nash as new additions to TNT and NBA TV broadcasts.

“If the new deal goes through, the Van Gundys will be the first family of NBA game analysts, as former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy has been on ABC/ESPN’s No. 1 team for more than a decade,” Marchand reported.

Stan Van Gundy has coached the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons. He has compiled a coaching record of 523-384, reaching the Finals as coach of the Magic in 2009.

Turner Sports has done away with The Player Only broadcasts for the 2019-20 season and let go of sideline reporter Ros Gold-Onwude, Marchand reported.
