The Detroit Pistons underwent a roster overhaul in the offseason, with just four players staying on from the 2019-20 campaign: Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose, Svi Mykhailiuk, and Sekou Doumbouya. Literally everyone else packed their bags and moved elsewhere.
Detroit's most notable departures include Christian Wood (signed with the Houston Rockets as a free agent), Luke Kennard (traded to the Los Angeles Clippers), Langston Galloway (signed as a free agent with the Phoenix Suns), Thon Maker (signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Cavaliers), and Tony Snell (traded to the Atlanta Hawks).
The Pistons did bring in a heap of new faces to the squad, though, headlined by free agent signing Jerami Grant. Josh Jackson, Mason Plumlee, Wayne Ellington, and Jhalil Okafor also signed with Detroit as free agents.
Detroit also added three first-rounders from the draft in Killian Hayes (seventh), Isaiah Stewart (16ht), and Saddiq Bey (19th).
The new-look Pistons enter the new season with a starting five of Killian Hayes, Josh Jackson, Jerami Grant, Blake Griffin, and Mason Plumlee. Derrick Rose, when healthy, will serve as the squad's sixth man and should serve as the Pistons' primary offensive weapon for the second unit. Guys like Delon Wright, Saddiq Bey, and Svi Mykhailiuk will be some of Detroit's most important players off the bench.
Despite being part of this team's current core, both Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose should be on trade watch, as the Pistons could emerge as sellers as they approach the trade deadline.
