Rodney Stuckey came out of the Vegas Summer League evoking memories of a more senior Pistons guard; Chauncey Billups.
Chauncey and Rodney were tagged as “combo” guards coming in as rookies. I assume the Pistons want to develop him from a combo guard into a full time point. Chauncey made the same adjustment before finding success in the NBA.
I can’t think of a better mentor for a young prospect like Rodney than Mr. Bigshot. He’s cool and collected both on the court and in the locker room. Hopefully that attitude and poise will rub off on Rodney. Good decision-making added to Rodney’s repitoire of offensive skills would leave Detroit’s PG position of the future in very good hands.
