20-52, 5th in East Central

red-x Projected Proj

One of the bigger rebuild projects belongs to the Detroit Pistons. We will see a new starting five this year as Killian Hayes was the big winner in terms of a landing spot where he could get minutes. That will be the case for the Frenchman, and he will play alongside Delon Wright and Jerami Grant. This is an athletic backcourt, and Grant is a newcomer who will have a large role with Detroit. The frontcourt belongs to a healthy Blake Griffin and Mason Plumlee. There could be rotating names at the starting center position this season. There is no emerging candidate for someone to make a major jump. Letting Christian Wood go this offseason remains a strange decision.

Detroit Pistons Starting Lineup Analysis

Detroit continues to try and find younger players to build around and Killian Hayes might just be that, as the young rookie out of France has big upside at the point guard position. Detroit is a major mix of veterans and young players, with Blake Griffin still being the older guy on the team. They have some misfits in the starting lineup like Josh Jackson and Mason Plumlee, who have rotated around the league for a few years now. Jerami Grant signed a long term deal with the Pistons and is looking to have some major usage and be an impact player.

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.
