Nice pickup with little downside. If his foot injuries are behind him we should get good value.

If we search out a few competitive young guys who've had a setback or two and a chip on their shoulder, we're on the right track. That's a tradition for building a good Pistons team.

Agreed.

We need guys that are pissed the **** off about being overlooked, underestimated or underappreciated.

Need a Ben Wallace type of guy to set the tone as far as attitude and work ethic, someone that driven.

If we don't have that guy on the roster yet we need to get him

Solid move. I'd be keen to pick up Allonzo Trier with a similar type of contract also if possible.

Love the pickup. His college stats look highly acceptable for a big. The vote of confidence from Troy definitely makes me a believer.

But even better getting another project hopefully means we won't be drafting a big.

And hopefully it means Wood will be playing the 4, as well as not getting overpaid. I hope it doesn't mean Wood is being pushed out.
SVG has castrated the Pistons franchise with bad drafting, bad trades, and overpaying offensive minded players.

Gonna take Ed Stefanski a while to dig out of this hole.

There is extremely low commitment on this from the Pistons as next year's salary is completely non guaranteed. He hasn't eclipsed single digits in games played in any season he has been in the league. We also still have plenty of unfilled roster spots; including big holes at the 4 & 5 spots.

I think it's foolish to try and draw any conclusions from this regarding Wood or any other moves related to bigs.

They needed another big regardless of whether Wood resigns or not. I like that they took a chance on a young, developmental one. I expect they’ll add another big as well, but probably a more “proven” type. Maybe even re-signing Henson for a year.

It’s more likely that he plays for Grand Rapids then Detroit next year. If he has a good preseason, he’ll make a good project. His presence doesn’t affect Christian Wood being a priority or not. He should be by the way

I want Donte Hall to get as much playing time as possible because he has a very high ceiling (in my opinion). Just watching him jump with his arms out is incredible, he has a great build.

It says 6'9" but I think he is closer to 7ft with that kind of length.

So if Patton is lightning in a bottle, a Wood clone, great. But I want to see Hall play.

No Thon, No Henson. There isnt any upside to that.

Donta hall should get a camp invite. I think Detroit is done with thon, but I could see them sign Henson on an affordable 2 year contract just to have a veteran up front.

Edit
Immediately after posting this I saw that the nets signed donta
