Kyle Singler replaces Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as Pistons’ starting shooting guard

David Mayo of MLive:

Kyle Singler to start at shooting guard for #Pistons tonight. Cheeks says he’ll decide that spot on game-by-game basis. KCP to bench.

At ProBasketballTalk, you can read why I find this move questionable, to say the least.

Also, just a hunch, but I think Kyle Singler will remain the start ahead of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope indefinitely. Even though Maurice Cheeks might consider switching each game, I suspect he’ll leave the lineup as is. That’s just usually how these things go, especially if/when Singler likely performs well tonight against a subpar Magic team.

I don’t think the Pistons are tanking. They’ve been talking playoffs for too long and have backed it up with their offseason moves. But since the season has really gotten going, they’ve frequently looked like a tanking team:

Add this to the list.

If the 76ers made some of these decisions, critics would complain they’re tanking too blatantly.
