The Pistons have a number of young prospects playing for their Summer League squad, most notably Andre Drummond, a potential breakout NBA stud.
Drummond missed a chunk of last season with a back injury, so just seeing him compete without restrictions is a promising sign.
He's been relentless on the interior through his first few games this summer. At 6'10", 270 pounds with supreme athleticism, Drummond is capable of taking over a game without using a dribble. If he emerges as the star it appears he might, you can't help but wonder what that says about Greg Monroe's future in Detroit.
This year's No. 8 overall pick, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, should be expected to get some burn as an NBA rookie. He opened up the summer 1-of-14 from downtown, though he did drop 19 points in game No. 3.
He's got some consistency issues to work through, but Caldwell-Pope has starting 2-guard potential based on his perimeter scoring and defensive strengths.
Detroit's second-round pick, Tony Mitchell, might be another threat to crack the rotation. His blend of size and athleticism is nearly unmatchable, which could help negate the fact that his offense lacks structure.
Between Drummond, Caldwell-Pope and Mitchell, along with Peyton Siva and Kim English, the Pistons have a number of young players you should expect to see this year.
