The Pistons aren’t looking for a starting point guard — Brandon Knight is the man. In fact with Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum the backcourt is pretty set. Maybe there could be some minutes to be had behind them.

Jonny Flynn is going to get a shot at some of those minutes, he has been given a contract with the Pistons, reports Chris Haynes at But he’s going to have to earn it — this is a non-guaranteed deal (meaning they can cut him before the season).

Flynn has never lived up to the No. 6 pick status (from 2009 draft, taken by the Timberwolves), in part due to hip surgery he had a couple years ago. Flynn worked out for a variety of teams but it is the Pistons who took a shot at him.

We’ll see if he is all the way back.

    I thought he had a nice rookie campaign, the hip surgery really hurt his explosivenss which was core to his game.
