Will any of the new Pistons players get the chance to start?

More than almost any team in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons have some serious uncertainty surrounding their starting lineup.

New coach and team president Stan Van Gundy will certainly have different opinions of the returning players than his predecessors did. And he's also brought in six new faces to the mix, several of whom will play serious minutes in 2014-15, if not earn a starting role.

The Pistons could have serious competition at four of the five spots, and Van Gundy said he will treat it as such to Dave Hogg of Fox Sport Detroit

"It's going to be a wide-open competition," he said. "We're going to find the best way to get these guys to fit together."

After winning just 29 games in 2013-14 and missing the postseason for the fifth consecutive season, every player should have to prove himself.

Expect developments until the season begins on which players best prove to Van Gundy that they deserve the starting spots. For now, we are left to speculate on what the new coach will do.
