The Pistons lack a dominating presence along the wings, as they will continue to rotate names like Reggie Bullock, Luke Kennard, and Stanley Johnson at small forward and shooting guard. Bullock brings the most offensively, while Johnson brings the most defensively. Reggie Jackson is the starting point guard, and will handle most of the minutes with thin backcourt depth. Detroit will likely remain with these names starting in the backcourt, but long term this isn’t a way they are headed. Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond are a lethal front court, and are the two that carry this Detroit starting five. As long as these two can stay healthy, they will dominate the usage for the Pistons each and every night. On occasion they will get some help, but Detroit is fairly one dimensional. Until they add another piece, expect everything to run through Drummond and Griffin.

Preseason Analysis: Casey & Griffin Looking to Lead the Way

Detroit made the trade for Blake Griffin last season, which caught many of us by surprise. Griffin sent away Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris, which freed up some time for Reggie Bullock. The Pistons are in a mess of a situation with their backcourt options. Reggie Jackson has been dealing with injuries, and both him and Ish Smith have basically been splitting time when healthy. Neither are tremendous fantasy options given they don’t have starter’s minutes. Jameer Nelson and Dwight Buycks both can be in the mix at times, but there is a logjam at guards. Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard both have played a bit of backup shooting guard, but the Pistons are not committed to any of these names for the future.

2018 will be interesting, and we will have to wait to see if there is any clear out before the season starts. The Pistons do need some front depth with not much behind Griffin and Andre Drummond. Both struggled to show upside in the same game last season, and there are a lot of question marks with how this team will transition moving forward. Detroit did hire Dwayne Casey, and it will be interesting to see what his rotations will look like. Stanley Johnson isn’t a huge threat at the three, and his offensive game needs more work. Casey might rely more on Bullock in this spot who has shown a more polished offensive game. Kennard could be in that contention too. Jon Leuer and Henry Ellenson are the backup front court bodies, and more will be needed. Leuer has been a fine spot starter, but isn’t ranking highly in terms of bench players. The Pistons will likely continue to play at a league average pace, as Casey did not play a high tempo game in Toronto. If Casey continues to use the bench, Detroit will be a lackluster fantasy team.
