It is no secret that the Pistons roster is in pretty bad shape.
Joe Dumars talked about returning Detroit into a tough, defensive minded team. This bunch never resembled that. Some help in the frontcourt is necessary.
Charlie V looks of out of place, but we have to live with him at this point. He did improve last year, but he is still not that interested in defense.
We know Ben is going to give us all he's got left in the tank at this point.
Tayshaun Prince could be on his way out of town.
Austin Daye shows some promise even playing the shooting guard position, but he is not a good defender.
Jonas Jerebko should be back and fully recovered which is certainly good news. He has a lot of upside and plays with trademark Piston scrappiness.
He and Greg Monroe are some solid pieces to begin to build around.
Monroe is a very intelligent basketball player with a solid game and passing ability. He is also a really good pick and roll defender.
For all that he is though, G Money is much more crafty than he is athletic. He only blocked 45 shots, but he did lead the team (!) with 93 steals.
He positions himself well once he adjusted to the pro game and became a solid rebounder; he could easily average a double-double next season.
It would make a lot of sense to pair him with this strong shot-blocker. Where Monroe does not play above the rim, as you can see in the photo, Biyombo certainly does.
That could be a very good combination.
There is some question regarding Biyombo's age. He says he is 18, but some reports have him as old as 22. As long as he is healthy, it should not be an issue.
He can come in and be part of a young Piston's core.
