Where do the Detroit Pistons need to improve?

The previous season for the Detroit Pistons was a good one.

What's the second-best move Stan Van Gundy has made in Detroit?

The first, obviously, is jettisoning Josh Smith into the ether. For now, we're in the offseason doldrums. There's precious little Pistons basketball to consume. League Pass replay for 2015-16 expired after the Las Vegas Summer League ended, Orlando Summer League highlights can only tide you over for so long, and USA Select Team scrimmages, though entertaining, don't have the same...

This seems to be the case for the Detroit Pistons as they almost immediately jump into the Orlando Summer League.
