    On the season Kevin Durant averaged 32 points, seven rebounds and five assists a game. Not too shabby.

  7. Detroit Pistons finally alter starting lineup

    Feb 5, 2014, 6:02 PM EDT

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Singler

    After weeks and weeks of everyone clamoring for the Pistons to change their starting lineup, they’ve finally done it. But Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond – who excel in pairs, just not as a trio – will still be starting together in the frontcourt. Instead Kyle Singler will replace Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at shooting…

  8. PBT Extra: PBT does its own Rising Stars Challenge draft; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

  9. Andre Drummond benched twice in loss to Dallas Mavericks, doesn’t want to talk about it

    Jan 27, 2014, 4:49 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    How much can an NBA player really screw up in the first 11 seconds of a half? In Andre Drummond’s case, enough to cause Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks to bench him. On the Pistons first play of the second half in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, Drummond set a ball screen…

  10. Josh Smith takes ‘real offense’ to Maurice Cheeks benching him

    Dec 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    When Maurice Cheeks removed Josh Smith from the starting lineup for missing a practice – called at the last moment, for the day following a back-to-back, after Smith had decided to stay in Atlanta to tend to his ill father – Smith bit his tongue. But now that Cheeks benched Smith for the entire second…

  11. All the new pieces in Detroit not fitting together well

    Nov 13, 2013, 4:34 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    When the Detroit Pistons went out to get Josh Smith to pair with Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, then added Brandon Jennings to the backcourt, it looked like they had something. It looked like they had a playoff team. Instead the Pistons are off to a bumpy 2-5 start and they have the worst defense…

  12. Brandon Jennings expected to miss first 4 regular season games due to jaw

    Oct 24, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings’ jaw is still wired shut. You can’t really play basketball that way (no, not even Kobe) and more than that you can’t really eat and train properly to get ready for the season. Jennings went through a light workout while wearing a mask on Wednesday but is a ways away from returning, reports…

  13. Brandon Jennings to miss start of season with tooth injury

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Brandon Jennings, Maurice Cheeks

    It seems the Pistons suddenly have a bigger backcourt problem than deciding their starting shooting guard. Combo guard Rodney Stuckey is already out with a broken finger. Though Maurice Cheeks hopes Stuckey will return in time for the Oct. 30 opener against the Wizards, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, that seems…

  14. Pistons’ Stuckey breaks thumb, to have surgery Friday, out indefinitely

    Oct 10, 2013, 7:54 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey

    Just a day ago, Pistons coach Mo Cheeks was giving Chauncey Billups the start at the two and saying Rodney Stuckey would be getting the chance to steal that job. Stuckey had been the best of the three defensively, Cheeks said. Meanwhile rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was left without a chair when the music stopped. (Actually,…

  15. Chauncey Billups gets seat in Pistons shooting guard musical chairs, leaves Kentavious Caldwell-Pope standing

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said Rodney Stuckey and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were frontrunners to start at shooting guard. At least that’s how it was paraphrased in an MLive report. Either something was lost in translation, or Cheeks had a change of heart. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: After naming Chauncey Billups the starter at…

  16. Pistons seemingly narrow starting shooting guard options to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    Oct 7, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    The Pistons have essentially four starters locked: Brandon Jennings at point guard, Josh Smith at small forward, Greg Monroe at power forward and Andre Drummond at center. That leaves shooting guard, where there seemed to be several contenders. Chauncey Billups Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Kyle Singler Rodney Stuckey Now, halve that list, Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks indicates.…

    Andre Drummond

    Last season: The Pistons went 29-53, their fifth straight losing season and fourth straight season outside the playoffs. Andre Drummond emerged as a possible franchise player, producing at elite levels to match his impressive physical profile. Greg Monroe also operated at a near-All Star level for the second straight season, though somewhat ignores his defensive…

    2013 NBA Draft

    Maurice Cheeks has one of the tougher coaching jobs in the NBA this season. While the NBA zigged toward efficiency and advanced stats, Joe Dumars zagged and built a roster with players other teams were hesitant on — Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings mainly. The Pistons got better but the question is how much better?…

  20. Andre Drummond being leader, getting Pistons rookies into town early

    Aug 21, 2013, 11:07 AM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    Andre Drummond, team leader. It’s just his second season and Detroit has a locker room with veterans such as Chauncey Billups and Josh Smith, but it has been Drummond reaching out to the Pistons rookies and telling Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Tony Mitchell, and Peyton Siva to come to Detroit early for pre-camp workouts, reports the Pistons…

  21. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…
