2016 Detroit Pistons Preview: November not as important as May for Reggie Jackson

Pistons’ progress comes to a halt without a major contribution from Reggie Jackson; ultimately, his value is dependent on team success. This is how it ended for Reggie Jackson last year: Down two, seven seconds remaining and with the entire floor to work with, Jackson’s top of the key three falls harmlessly short. Game. Series. Season. In Cleveland, he found a...

The Pistons lost perhaps their most important player in Reggie Jackson for the first part of the season. Jackson said he wanted to be back four weeks after his procedure, but more than likely it will be a six-week timetable. This means newly acquired backup Ish Smith will start for the first 20 or so games, with Ray McCallum as the backup. With Jackson’s injury, this first quarter...

2016 Detroit Pistons preview: Philly native Marcus Morris has found a home in Detroit

After exceeding expectations his first season in Motown, Marcus Morris may be – for the money – the most valuable Piston. When the NBA’s free agency frenzy opened in July of 2015, names like DeMarre Carroll and Danny Green were frequently floated as Detroit targets. With a roster virtually devoid of talent at small forward (save for 19-year-old rookie Stanley Johnson), filling...

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Pistons have exercised their team option on forward Stanley Johnson through the 2017-18 season.
