The Detroit Pistons seem to be caught in the middle of mediocrity. The two playoff appearances in the last four years are the highlight, despite being swept, of what’s been a bitter decade with failed plans by two administrations.
Dwane Casey and Ed Stefanski seem to have a coherent plan in place and are making strides to improve upon a 41-41 season that landed the Pistons the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. They’ve improved that roster, at least on paper, and could reap the benefits of doing so. But if things go awry, it’ll be a complicated decision for the Pistons front office.
