Ex-Detroit Pistons Coach Stan Van Gundy, who was one of a few NBA coaches to speak out strongly against Donald Trump after election night in 2016, voiced strong support Thursday for the Equality Act after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the legislation in a partisan 224-206 vote.

Only three Republicans voted for the bill, which still faces a battle in the Senate.

The legislation is being touted as a landmark LGBTQ rights bill, which prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in areas including employment, housing and education. 

Van Gundy served as the Pistons head coach from 2014-2018. He is currently the head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans. Before coming to the Pistons, he was the head coach in Miami and Orlando.
