Joe Johnson brings some depth and insurance to the Detroit Pistons roster entering training camp but there are still deficiencies to sort through.
After all, there’s no guarantee that Johnson makes the final roster since his contract is partially-guaranteed. Given the nature of how young the Pistons are, especially on the wing, his veteran presence would be useful.
Players need to get experience at some point. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk got a full offseason to learn under Dwane Casey and enter his second year with a great opportunity. He was a 3-point marksman in college but struggled in his rookie season.
