I had the pleasure of joining Nick Denning and James Plowright from The Lottery Mafia last night as we broke down the offseason to this point for the Detroit Pistons.
Here’s a description of last night’s Lottery Mafia Podcast, including the time stamps of each topic we discussed.
To listen in, click play below.
With Detroit’s offseason starting to wrap up, we discussed the moves Stan Van Gundy has made since taking over, including the free agent signings of Jodie Meeks, Caron Butler, and DJ Augustin. We discussed Greg Monroe’s decision to accept the qualifying offer (making him an unrestricted free agent next year) and what it means for his future with Detroit.
In between, we talked about Spencer Dinwiddie, Peyton Siva’s release (James is a big Peyton Siva fan), and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s awesome Summer League performance.
Finally, we pondered whether Detroit can make the playoffs or if they are looking at another season in the lottery, along with trying to make sense of the Piston’s hiring Otis Smith to coach their D-League team, and finishing off discussing Andre Drummond’s efficiency and potential.
Estimated Time Stamps:
- Greg Monroe - 4:00
- Stan Van Gundy’s offseason moves – 14:20
- KCP’s Summer League – 28:20
- Spencer Dinwiddie – 34:30
- Peyton Siva’s release – 40:00
- Otis Smith as a D-League coach – 46:00
- Playoff potential – 52:00
- Andre Drummond – 59:20
