Detroit Pistons Starting Lineup 2020 Pistons Starting Lineup

20-46, 4th in East Central

red-x Projected Proj

The Pistons starting lineup lacks the firepower to be a competitive team in the NBA. Derrick Rose took over the starting point guard role and when healthy Luke Kennard will start next to him. Because of his durability, Jordan McRae and Bruce Brown will also see starts. Christian Wood is now getting more starts because of the Andre Drummond trade to Cleveland. Blake Griffin is also on the shelf and the frontcourt is extremely thin in Detroit. I wouldn't bank on consistent starting lineups because of all the injuries.

Detroit Pistons Starting Lineup Analysis

Ready for Some Motor City Madness – Piston Fans Eager for Michigan to Launch Online Sports Betting

The Pistons are one of professional basketball's few franchises that have produced successful title runs spanning multiple years. To close the 1970s, Detroit produced a few of the most inept seasons in NBA history. A 21-game run to end the 1979-80 season, drifting into the start of the 80-81 campaign, was for a time the longest losing streak in league history. However, Detroit basketball faithful would experience a decade of consistent championship contention behind a team with a dubious nickname, the Bad Boys. Detroit fans have experienced a history of colorful Piston players in the team's starting lineup. When Michigan sports betting was approved in 2019, Pistons' faithful had a new way to support their team.

FanDuel Sportsbook has formed a partnership with the Detroit-based MotorCity Casino Hotel. This elaborate two-story sportsbook facility puts FanDuel right in the heart of Piston country. The FanDuel Michigan sportsbook is targeted as one of the first to launch its online and mobile sports betting app in Michigan. FanDuel's consistent success across the country with one of the highest quality sportsbook apps is well-established. When the launch of online sports betting happens in Michigan, projected for early 2021 or sooner, FanDuel Michigan sportsbook new accounts can earn up to a $500 risk-free first bet. This could turn into a big cash payout with the right bet on the Pistons.

The PointsBet Michigan sportsbook app will give Pistons fans a new twist on how to bet on their favorite team. It's referred to as "Pointsbetting". Pointsbetting adds a level of accuracy to each of your bets. The more accurate a bet is, the more money you can win. PointsBet is ready to launch its online sportsbook app in Michigan after forming a partnership with Public the Enterprise and Finance Commission of the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians. The 20-year deal will bring the unique betting style of PointsBet to all Detroit Pistons fans. PointsBet will offer new PointsBet Michigan accounts a two-fold welcome package. You can take advantage of a $500 risk-free first bet using traditional odds, or apply a $1,000 risk-free wager using the pointsbetting feature.

The DraftKings Sportsbook Michigan sportsbook formed a partnership with the Bay Hills Resort and Casino in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. While circumstances limited the success of the brick-and-mortar sportsbook location for DraftKings Michigan, an expected 2021 launch of online sports betting opportunities will abruptly push DraftKings as a viable competitor for the Michigan sports betting market. The DraftKings mobile app is one of the most successful currently operating in states with legal online sports betting. They are offering an alluring welcome bonus as well. New Michigan DraftKings accounts should expect the same $1,000 package currently being offered. The package includes up to a $500 risk-free first bet and another $500 in potential deposit bonuses.

William Hill Michigan has established its Michigan sports betting partnership with the Turtle Creek Casino in Williamsburg, Michigan. The physical William Hill Michigan sportsbook location is two hours north of Grand Rapids. William Hill brings an international reputation to Michigan sports bettors. They offer a smooth and user-friendly platform, and because of their base in the United Kingdom, often include better odds on particular games. William Hill is offering all Michigan sports bettors a welcome bonus just for registering for a free account. Piston fans will enjoy that they can make their first bet on their hometown team risk-free up to $500.

That being said, the players that surround Griffin on this Detroit roster may put a ceiling on how much success to expect. Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson have the two next highest salaries on the team behind Blake, and while they are fine NBA players they have yet to show that they are worth the money that they’re being paid. Drummond is a double-double machine, but his inability to score from anywhere other than at the rim allows defenses to clog the paint and limit the spacing of the offense. The same issue arises on defense, as the further away he is from the hoop the more of a liability he becomes. As for Jackson, he has just been able to consistently put it all together on the court, and for someone who clearly has the talent to be one of the better guards in the league, he will need to step up if Detroit wants to improve.

As for the rest of the roster, the Pistons have slowly been acquiring some depth that could keep the team afloat during the grueling regular season. This has come from veteran free agent signing through the like of Derrick Rose and Markieff Morris while also through their recent draft selections of Luke Kennard, Bruce Brown, and Sekou Doumbouya. This is perhaps an area where Detroit has an advantage over other teams in their tier, as they will be well prepared if one of their starters (other than Griffin) has to rest or miss games with an injury.
