Pistons Load Up On Shooters

The Detroit Pistons were always going to be active during free agency with a new regime in place in the front office. Still, it’s perhaps a little surprising just how quickly the Pistons have set about doing their business.

Stan Van Gundy definitely has a type, and in his new duel coaching/front office role in the Motor City, he has wasted no time in surrounding himself with players that fit his eye. On the opening day of free agency, Detroit signed the experienced shooting combo of Jodie Meeks and Cartier Martin.

Although they might not be household names, Meeks and Martin were shrewd acquisitions. The Pistons desperately lacked quality shooters last season, and in those two players, they’ve grabbed underrated players who can knock down open shots.

Away from the signings there’s been rumors aplenty mentioning the Pistons too. From big name free agents, to potential trades, and sign-and-trades, there’s no doubt there’s plenty more business to come for Detroit.

Before all of that, let’s take a closer look at Meeks, Martin, and some of the other potential signees for the Pistons.
