30 in 30 – Pistons

Detroit Pistons

The Detroit went big again. In terms of players and in terms of money.

Taking Henry Ellenson at number 18 in this years draft was a very smart move. The Pistons will get a forward who averaged 17 points and 10 rebounds per game in college.

Securing Andre Drummond to a five year contract at $125,000,000 million was clever. You don’t want to loose your young starting centre to a rival, especially when he is already in the top seven centres in the league. 

Trading for Tobias Harris was an even smarter move. He is a versatile scorer and has the size and athleticism to guard any position. He impresses me night in, night out. 

Their main signing this off season was point guard Ish Smith on a three year deal at $18,000,000, a bargain price for a guard who averaged seven assists and 14 points per game on a terrible 76ers roster last year.

Watch out for – Stanley Johnson – passion and confidence.

The Pistons will be hoping to push further into the playoffs this year after securing more depth and scoring.
