The Pistons announced their full Summer League roster, and there are no real surprises in the group.Of chief interest to me is whether there is a chance a big man can emerge as a developmental rebounding, shot-blocking, defensive force of any kind.
The candidates are as follows, Jared Reiner and Jordan Eglseder, both of whom I covered in this post, and Mac Koshwal, who, despite being 6-10, never averaged more than 0.9 blocks per game. He is the classic Dumars player, undersized, huge wingspan, big man with a face-up game, etc. He is definitely the most offensively inclined of the three possible center Summer League invites, but he’s very toolsy, and I’m not sure if he projects as any sort of great defender. Here is a look at the full roster, courtesy of pistons.com:
