As this season is concerned, the Detroit Pistons could stop playing right now.

They were aware coming in that this season was one of low expectations. After 58 games, we can definitely say that with just 13 wins, they arrived on track. The only worse team in the league than the Pistons is the Orlando Magic, who are sitting on the same amount of wins, but with two more losses. Yet, the season isn't over yet, and the next two months of play could be crucial for a young team with hopes of competing for the playoffs as 2022-23.  30 games left.

Here are two burning questions for Pistons after the 2022 All-Star break.

Pistons burning questions after 2022 All-Star break 

Can Marvin Bagley III fulfill his potential? 

The Pistons mostly stood pat at the trade deadline, but they did pull off one deal with some great potential. They traded away Trey Lyles and Josh Jackson in a massive four-team deal and got back Marvin Bagley III. After three-and-a-half stagnant seasons with the Sacramento Kings, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 draft finally has a much-needed second chance in the NBA.

The fit of Bagley and the Pistons looks great on paper. The Pistons don't have a surefire building block up front, with Isaiah Stewart likely topping out as an average starting center and Luka Garza surely destined to be a bench player. Adding Bagley was a great move that carries virtually no risk and should pay dividends in the future. If it does not, his contract expires at the end of this season and the Pistons can simply move on by taking a big man toward the top of the 2022 NBA draft.

In two games he did play with Detroit before the All-Star break, Bagley totaled 16 points and 14 rebounds on 7-of-17 shooting. He still has a ton of potential, but he will need a lot of time to get back into things. Just a few months ago, he was ending the 2020-21 season averaging 14.1 points and 7.4 boards while shooting 50.4% from the field. It was only when his playing time was cut that Bagley started playing really poorly. Thankfully for him, the Pistons have a ton of available minutes in the frontcourt.

Who will remain out of the young core? 

There are a ton of young guys on this squad that might or might not make the Pistons roster that ends up potentially competing for an NBA title. Overall, out of the current 15 players on the roster, only four have four or more years of experience in the NBA. There are three rookies, four sophomores and three players on their fourth year in the league. With an incoming high pick in the 2022 draft, some players will definitely not be on the roster going forward.

Cade Cunningham isn't going anywhere, of course, and the Pistons may have another long-term starter in Saddiq Bey. But who else is long for the Motor City?

There are a few curious cases, but we should start with Jerami Grant. He ended up not being dealt at the trade deadline, which might come back to bite the Pistons. Do they really want to sign him to a four-year, $112 million extension this summer? At 27, Grant doesn't quite align with this team's timeline. His future in Detroit depends on a lot of factors, but he is definitely remaining there until the end of this season.

Killian Hayes is also an interesting case for the Pistons. He was chosen seventh in the 2020 draft and has failed to take a major step forward this season after an ugly rookie year. Hayes still has two years on his rookie deal, so it will be interesting to see how much longer will he remain on the Pistons roster. It's not looking good for Hayes right now, but fortunes can change very quickly in the NBA.
