5 Areas Detroit Pistons Must Upgrade This Offseason

The Detroit Pistons were enormous disappointments this season.

After winning just 29 games in 2013-14, there is no shortage of areas the Detroit Pistons need to upgrade over the next five months.

Offensively, their spacing was often an issue as they often played three big men at a time, leading to an offensive rating that was in the bottom half of the league. They were even worse on the other end—they had a bottom-five defensive rating, giving up 107.3 points per 100 possessions. 

With Joe Dumars done as general manager and Maurice Cheeks relieved of his head coaching duties months ago, it will be up to brand-new management to provide the fixes. 

They will have a good chunk of cap space—as much as $20 million if the cap rises as expected—and a top-eight draft pick if no team jumps them in the lottery. But they also need to get more out of their existing players if they aim to be competitive in the Eastern Conference.
