The past few days have been very quiet for Detroit Pistons fans in terms of news. There’s still no word on where Greg Monroe will be playing next season, and there’s been no more free agent acquisitions either.
In spite of all of that, the Pistons have completed one piece of business though, with second round draft pick Spencer Dinwiddie signing a three year deal in the Motor City according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The signing of Dinwiddie shouldn’t really be too much of a surprise, as having been the only Detroit draft pick this season, he was always expected to become a contributor at some point. Considering Dinwiddie is working his way back from a torn ACL and faces a lengthy lay-off still, it was an interesting decision for the Pistons’ front office to make though.
Dinwiddie has a lot going for him, and at first glance it seems like a clever decision from Detroit for a number of reasons. Let’s take a closer look and establish exactly why it was the right move for the Pistons.
