Give credit to the Pistons for assembling such a well-rounded team. This team has been the most impressive Summer League team I have seen from Detroit in recent memory, and exciting to watch.

With Kennard and Ellenson likely to make the roster, Eric Moreland has also been offered a multi-year contract, which could mean as many as three players from the Orlando squad could land on the active roster.
