This once promising season has quickly become a disappointment, as the Pistons have lost 14 of their last 17 games. The chances of a playoff appearance have almost completely disappeared, and they have actually played poorly enough to possibly keep their first-round pick in June's draft (the Charlotte Bobcats get it this season if it falls outside the top eight).
While the team may not have much to play for at this point, general manager Joe Dumars' expiring contract likely signifies changes in the front office. A potential replacement might want to change the direction of the team, and this final stretch of games gives players the chance to prove that they're worth keeping around.
