Pistons' Ersan Ilyasova appears to have claimed starting PF role
Pistons forward Ersan Ilyasova appears to have solidified himself as the starting power forward for the Pistons during training camp, NBA.com reports.Aside from guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, coach Stan Van Gundy cited Ilyasova as one of the top performers in camp, all but assuring that the offseason acquisition is secure in his role. Ilyasova had a modest preseason debut (six points, four rebounds, four turnovers in 23 minutes), but with little notable competition behind him on the depth chart, the 28-year-old should eat up most of the playing time made available by Greg Monroe's departure.
