Detroit Pistons: Projected 2020-21 Depth Chart

The Detroit Pistons had an interesting offseason to say the least. Rather than paying Christian Wood, they threw big money at other bigs around the league to come play in Detroit. Although they had a solid draft, it will likely be another season without a playoff appearance for the Pistons.

Biggest Questions

  • Will Blake Griffin be on the team by the end of the season? If the Pistons are going to be mediocre again, it may be time to get what you can for Griffin before it’s too late. Although he hasnt been able to stay healthy recently, he could still be an extremely impactful player on a team looking to make the playoffs.
  • Is Killian Hayes ready to lead this team? It already appears that he will be the starting point guard to start the season, even as a rookie. This shows the amount of faith that the Pistons have in him, but it won’t be an easy task.
