Pistons 2018 Off Season Moves
The first one is the most obvious. The Pistons need a head coach. What are you all thinking? Stackhouse is a former Piston who has been interviewing with teams. I kind of like that idea. Budenholzer is another name that is getting thrown out there. I'm suprised Mark Jackson isn't a name we ever hear of with all these vacancies. I think he is a good coach.
For the front office I'd really like to see them bring in Billups. I think that would be the best choice.
There's not much this team can do unless they are somehow able to make a major trade. I don't see teams taking on Griffin's contract. I don't see us getting a fair return for Drummond. If they trade Jackson they would need another starting PG and I don't see them getting on in return. We're kind of stuck with this team. We really need to hope Kennard and Johnson can step their games up. Kennard gets a lot of heat for being picked before Mitchell. I actually think he had a good rookie season considering. SVG was terrible at developing young guys yet Kennard was the first one that showed he had promise. His usage wasn't anywhere near those other top rookies. Otherwise I think he would have had pretty good numbers. I think he'll definitely be starting next season. Hopefully he keeps working. Seems like a solid starter at SG for a long time for us. I kind of wish they just would have went into full tank mode quite a while ago though. There's not a lot to look forward to. Do we really think Johnson is somehow going to get to that next level? Seems like a bust to me. Maybe Ellenson can finally step up. They could just trade everyone for draft picks and tank next season. I'd actually be fine with that. Get out of mediocrity and try to get a few young game changers. I don't see that happening though so our only hope is players get better. Healthy the team would have made the playoffs this season. They would have got crushed, but they would have been there.
