Eye on Basketball Podcast: Detroit Pistons offseason report

Get your shot charts out because we're talking Detroit Pistons today. Matt Moore joins me to go over the offseason moves of the Pistons and try to figure out how this all comes together and brings the Pistons back to the playoffs. With the acquisitions of Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith this offseason, can the Pistons simply get by on talent alone or do they need both of these guys to change their games and become more selective shooters? Will the Pistons lead the NBA in putback dunks?

Speaking of dunks, is Andre Drummond read to take a step forward and will the new coach in town actually play him significant minutes? Will the Pistons really roll out a starting lineup of Brandon Jennings, Rodney Stuckey, Josh Smith, Greg Monroe, and Andre Drummond? Does that make Greg Monroe the best shooter on the floor? And could Monroe end up being expendable as a valuable trade asset in the near future?

We discuss all of that, plus Larry Sanders vs. Greg Monroe, face-guarding, and why the 76ers are like my honest niece.
