Michigan locals should check their newspaper's classifieds section this week: They'll see an open job [VIDEO] in the NBA. The Detroit Pistons have moved on from coach and czar Stan Van Gundy after four seasons. This decision came fairly late in the offseason, leaving the team without some of the top options at the beginning of the hiring season. Still, the team will need a head coach by the time the 2018-19 season rolls around.

Here are five top candidates for the Detroit job.

Mike Budenholzer

Notice how his name pops up for every head coaching position [VIDEO]? He's easily the most accomplished coach on the market. One of the reasons he and the Atlanta Hawks went their separate ways was the extended rebuild Atlanta started under his watch, through no fault of his own.

He won't have that problem in Detroit. While there are obvious kinks to work out - this Pistons team didn't make the playoffs after all - there are two stars in place in Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin.

Jerry Stackhouse

Stackhouse has built a sterling reputation in the G-League and his name was included in many prospective coaching searches this spring. Alas, that potential has yet to turn into a professional leap. This would be a homecoming of sorts, though. He played for the Pistons from 1998 to 2002, enjoying some of his best professional seasons in the Motor City.

Tom Izzo

This is not the first time Izzo would be considered for an NBA coaching role: The Cleveland Cavaliers were said to be in pursuit when they hired David Blatt instead a few summers ago. He's developed into a Hall of Fame coach at Michigan State, so jumping to a local NBA program like the Pistons would be a logical evolution.

There's a massive stain on his reputation, however, stemming from the various Michigan State sexual assault scandals.

Mark Jackson

He was one of the top candidates for the New York Knicks job, which went to David Fizdale. Jackson remains one of the top former coaches on the market. He had the Golden State Warriors moving in the right direction when front office tension led to his replacement. Jackson sports a 121-109 record as a head coach and could have the Pistons in the playoffs next year.

Mike Brown

No, Brown is not the sexiest hire in the world. But Detroit is familiar with him from his varying stints in Cleveland. And everyone in the NBA took notice of how successfully he guided the Warriors through Steve Kerr's back problems over the past few seasons. Brown has never won a title, but he has finished in the top three of the division in every full season he's coached.
