Detroit Pistons: Josh Jackson’s shooting has been horrible

Overall, Josh Jackson has been a nice surprise for the Pistons, as his energy and versatility on the defensive end have earned him minutes even though he continues to struggle shooting the ball.

That struggle has gotten worse lately, as Jackson keeps firing 3-point shots even though there is no evidence he can make them.

After a 12-game run of awful shooting from behind-the-arc, Jackson is now just 29 percent on 3-point shots (a career low)  for the season but is still taking 4.4 four of them per game (a career high.)

Jackson will continue to get minutes because of his defense and energy but he needs to carve out a role on offense that does not involve shooting from long range.

Detroit Pistons: Sekou Doumbouya still can’t crack the rotation

Even after Blake Griffin was benched in an effort to trade him or buy him out, Doumbouya still hasn’t been able to earn a spot in the rotation, which is disappointing.

Fans that want to call him a “bust” or give up on a  20-year-old who was a raw prospect coming in, really don’t understand development, as most guys are not who they are going to be until at least age 25.

That being said, it’s discouraging that he looks worse than last season and still can’t earn minutes though he is on a team mostly populated by rookies.

Detroit Pistons: Delon Wright probably won’t be moved

Delon Wright’s injury threw a monkey wrench into the possibility that he would be traded before the deadline, as he still hasn’t returned and may not have time to show he is healthy before March 25th.

This might not be the worst thing, as Wright will still have value down the road and he has a team-friendly contract that could easily be moved in the offseason.

But for those hoping that he would be traded for a first round pick and allow the youngsters to take the wheel, you  may have to wait until next season.

The Detroit Pistons have to be happy about where they are at the halfway point. Let’s hope they can continue to lose games in entertaining fashion, as this has been one of the funnest teams in recent memory even though they are in last place in the East.
