2016-17 Pistons offense: Is Pistons’ personnel and scheme the right fit?

Film don’t lie. When Stan Van Gundy came to Detroit during the summer of 2014, it was assumed the Pistons would inherit Orlando’s “one in-four out” principles centered around Andre Drummond in place on Dwight Howard.

As some franchises have loaded up on stars in an attempt to win championships, others have torn their rosters down to the studs in an attempt to land the next big thing.
