Detroit Pistons NBA Championship Odds 2022-23

The current Detroit Pistons NBA championship odds are . Detroit may be a long shot to win the NBA Championship this season; however, it may be a favorite sometime in the next decade after an unbelievable haul in the 2022 NBA Draft. The Pistons came away with Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren, two potential All-Star-caliber talents, to add to their young core, which includes lead guard Cade Cunningham, Saddiq Bey, and Isaiah Stewart. Even Marvin Bagley III could be a solid rotation piece with starter upside if he continues improving in this new environment. While Detroit is a true longshot to make any run at the NBA Championship this season, it is well-positioned for the future. Take a look at the odds for the Pistons below!

Detroit is in a terrific position right now; it has several core pieces for a successful rebuild, including Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart, and Jalen Duren. That is a team that many eager NBA fans will want to watch, as there should be an abundance of highlight plays! The Pistons still have a lot of work to do despite having plenty of young talent, including adding three-point shooting and improving its defensive efficiency and rebounding. It won’t happen this season, but Detroit will soon be a competitor in the Eastern Conference for years to come.

Reasons Why Detroit Pistons Can & Can’t Win NBA 2022-23 Championship

Strengths

  • Youth: Youth is on the Detroit Pistons’ side and will be for the foreseeable future, with Jalen Duren, Jaden Ivey, and Cade Cunningham all being less than 21 years old. The Pistons have plenty of fresh, young legs that can handle back-to-backs with relative ease, as well as the intensity of any potential playoff series. Still, this is not nearly enough for the Pistons to have an advantage over similarly positioned teams.

    Weaknesses

    • Experience/Leadership: When you consider the teams who have recently won NBA titles, there are a few things that become evidently clear. One of those vital aspects that is apparent for all champions is experience/leadership. Every team in recent memory has had an abundance of veterans with plenty of NBA years under their belt: Steph Curry and the Warriors, LeBron and the Cavs, Giannis and the Bucks. Detroit does not yet have the firepower, experience, or leadership to compete. It’s not even worth throwing a small bet down.
    • Depth: It’s easy to get excited about Detroit’s young core, but that does not extend to its bench by any stretch of the imagination. The Pistons’ bench includes Rodney McGruder, Isaiah Livers, Nerlens Noel, Hamidou Diallo, Cory Joseph, Killian Hayes, Frank Jackson, and Alec Burks: nothing to get super excited about. This bench will be significantly outscored by almost every other NBA team in the league.
    • Three-Point Shooting: It’s no mystery that Detroit is among the worst three-point shooting teams in the NBA. With the names I’ve listed above, starters or bench players, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the three-point deficiency. As a team, Detroit shot 32.6% from deep, an abysmal amount that ranked it next-to-last in the league. This number will not improve significantly as Ivey nor Duren will move the needle in a positive direction this season.
    • Rebounding: Detroit finished dead-last during the 2021-22 regular season in total rebounding percentage and the bottom seven in defensive rebounding percentage. Jalen Duren should alleviate these issues slightly, but it is difficult for a rookie to make such a drastic impact.
