Checklist for Detroit Pistons to Get Back to the NBA Playoffs Next Season
Duane Burleson/Associated Press
The Detroit Pistons have not made the playoffs since 2009.

The 2013-14 season was a complete disappointment for the Detroit Pistons, and they will need to make a number of changes to ensure they aren't left out of the postseason in 2015.

Last offseason, the Pistons made a number of moves designed to get them to the playoffs. They signed Josh Smith, traded for Brandon Jennings and brought in Maurice Cheeks as head coach. Cheeks didn't last the year, and the man who acquired Smith and Jennings—general manager Joe Dumars—has resigned his position.

The Pistons have a strong core of young players, including Andre Drummond, one of the league's rising stars. They will also have as much as $20 million in cap space and will likely have a lottery pick. The cupboard certainly isn't bare in Detroit. 

While they are at home watching the NBA postseason, it's time for the Pistons to make a plan to ensure they're playing into May next season.
