Pistons offer new performance center to health officials for COVID-19 help


The Detroit Pistons are reportedly offering their new performance center to Detroit health officials as the U.S. continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, per James Edwards III of The Athletic.

The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season after Utah Jazz All-Star center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. The Pistons had one player test positive. It was big man Christian Wood.

However, Wood has recovered fully:

This is a great gesture by the Pistons. The NBA is on lockdown for the foreseeable future, so the Pistons and owner Tom Gores figured they might as well let the city of Detroit use their facility in this time of need.

Although NBA owners are hopeful of resuming the 2019-20 season in the summer, the odds as of now aren’t looking that good since the virus is spreading like crazy, especially here in the U.S.

The Pistons were on their way to missing the playoffs this season after making it in 2018-19 for the first time since 2016. Detroit went 20-46 prior to play being called. The Pistons were in 13th place in the Eastern Conference standings.
