Top Pistons News

  • Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Re-signs with Detroit

    McGruder agreed to a one-year deal with the Pistons on Monday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    McGruder will return to Detroit for a third season after averaging 5.4 points and 2.2 rebounds in 14.8 minutes per game across 51 appearances in 2021-22. The 6-foot-4 wing is unlikely to be a regular member of Detroit's rotation when the team is at full strength.

  • Pistons' Saben Lee: Unable to play Thursday

    Lee (ankle) didn't play in Thursday's Summer League game against the Cavaliers.

    Lee was forced to leave Saturday's Summer League matchup against the Wizards in a walking boot after suffering an ankle injury during the game. The guard should see an important depth role off the bench for the Pistons this upcoming season assuming his injury isn't serious.

  • Pistons' Jaden Ivey: Didn't play Thursday

    Ivey (ankle) didn't play in Thursday's Summer League game against the Cavaliers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    The Pistons once again chose to be cautious with their fifth overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. Ivey sat out in his second consecutive Summer League game Thursday allowing Charlie Moore and Braxton Key to see a larger workload.

  • Pistons' Jalen Duren: Resting Thursday

    Duren will take a day off for rest purposes Thursday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    Duren got off to a decent start to open Summer League, compiling 11.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. The No. 13 overall pick doesn't look to be bothered by an injury, but the big man will take a day of rest. Detroit's scheduled Summer League contests have concluded aside from tournament play during the weekend.

  • Pistons' Carsen Edwards: Rights renounced by Detroit

    Edwards had his free agent rights renounced by the Pistons on Wednesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Edwards was let go to clear cap space for the Pistons' offseason transactions. He played four games for Detroit at the end of last season after spending his first two years in the league seeing spot minutes with Boston.

  • Pistons' Saben Lee: Spotted in walking boot Tuesday

    Lee (ankle) was in a walking boot during Tuesday's Summer League game versus the Pacers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    Lee departed Sunday's Summer League tilt with an ankle injury and the walking boot could indicate it's more than a minor issue. Lee should play a sizable bench role for the Pistons in 2022-23 when healthy, so it will be worth keeping an eye on his status moving forward.

  • Pistons' Jaden Ivey: Out Tuesday

    Ivey (ankle) is out for Tuesday's Summer League game against the Pacers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    It's not surprising the Pistons are exercising caution with the rookie. His next chance to play arrives Thursday against the Cavaliers.

  • Pistons' Saben Lee: Exits with left ankle injury

    Lee suffered a left ankle injury during Saturday's Summer League game against the Wizards and will not return, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Before exiting, Lee played 24 minutes and posted 11 points, three assists and two steals. Detroit's next exhibition is Tuesday against the Pacers. Given Lee's NBA experience, it's possible this injury is enough to shut him down for the rest of Summer League.

  • Pistons' Jaden Ivey: Suffers ankle injury

    Ivey suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's Summer League game against the Wizards and will not return, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports. He left having played five minutes and posting 11 points and two assists.

    The severity of the injury is unknown, but the rookie was at least able to take his free throws before exiting the game. The Pistons don't play again until Tuesday, so he'll have some time to recover and potentially return before the end of exhibition play.

  • Pistons' Jaden Ivey: Debuts with 20 points, six assists

    Ivey posted 20 points (6-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 81-78 Summer League victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Ivey led the team in points and assists in his first action as a member of the Pistons. His five turnovers detracted some from his otherwise impressive performance, but that's expected in summer when the games are fast and loose. As the exhibitions continue, Ivey should remain the featured piece of the team.

  • Pistons' Jalen Duren: Plays 12 minutes in LVSL debut

    Duren played 12 minutes and posted nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT), two blocks, one rebound, one assist and one steal during Thursday's 81-78 Las Vegas Summer League victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Duren played well in his first action as a member of the Pistons, though his playing time was relatively limited, likely due to the presence of Isaiah Stewart, who played 27 minutes. As Summer League goes along, it seems likely Stewart's minutes will phase out, and Duren will start to be featured more.

  • Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Skipping out on Summer League

    Cunningham's personal trainer said Wednesday that the 20-year-old won't be playing for the Pistons' entry in the Las Vegas Summer League, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Cunningham is likely fully healthy after a sore right hip kept him sidelined for the Pistons' April 10 season finale against the 76ers, but Detroit saw enough from the 2021 No. 1 overall pick as a rookie to justify not exposing him to a potential injury by having him play in games this summer. He ultimately finished third in the Rookie of the Year balloting behind Scottie Barnes and Evan Mobley after averaging 17.4 points, 5.6 assists, 5.5 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers, 1.2 steals and 0.7 blocks in 32.6 minutes per game across 64 appearances. Cunningham's efficiency from the field improved as the season rolled along, and he should be primed to take another step forward in that area in 2022-23 while likely handling an even more focal role on offense. He'll be part of a promising young nucleus that includes 2022 lottery picks Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren along with four other recent first-round selections in Saddiq Bey, Marvin Bagley, Isaiah Stewart and Killian Hayes.

  • Pistons' Kevin Knox: Joining Detroit on two-year deal

    Knox and the Pistons agreed to terms Thursday on a two-year, $6 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Knox became an unrestricted free agent Wednesday after the Hawks chose not to extend a qualifying offer to the forward before the league deadline. He'll now provide additional depth in Detroit's frontcourt for 2022-23 after agreeing to a two-year deal with the team Thursday. In 30 appearances last season, Knox averaged 3.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in just 7.4 minutes per contest with the Knicks and the Hawks, so he'll look to carve out a more prominent role in his new team's rotation for 2022-23.
