The Pistons are the 17th-oldest team in the NBA this season, adjusted for minutes played. Given how bad they are, I wish the Pistons were a little younger, but at least they’re younger than average.
For a Detroit team that is typically one of the league’s oldest, it’s progress.
The Pistons haven’t ranked lower on the oldest-team list since 1996, when they finished 21st. They also ranked 17th in 2001.
