Him shooting those jumpers is something I will never get used to seeing. It looks clumsy and awkward, but he knocks them down at a decent rate.
Although I don't mind Monroe playing C, I do agree that Frank is hurting the team with his coaching.
So here I go, as one of the millions of GM's around the world:
They should bring in Scott Skiles (if he wants to), who's on the market now, and make this team a defensive unit. He can develop young guys as well.
JJ seems like a player Skiles can really use effectively. Daye too. Make Monroe/Drummond the defensive frontcourt of the future and get Knight to distribute the ball better.
The Pistons should try to get rid of Stuckey, at basically any cost. Not because he's a bad player, but because he's not a great teamplayer (in my opinion).
Also, I wouldbring back Walker Russel Jr, for some veteran leadership and ball distribution of the bench. I'm a fan after seeing him play last season and he's in the D-league, ready for a call.
