Detroit Pistons: Mason Plumlee watch

Mason Plumlee has evolved into one of my favorite Detroit Pistons to watch. He is not a superstar by any means but he does a little bit of everything and is putting up some impressive numbers this season.

After grabbing a whopping 16 rebounds against the Rockets, Plumlee is now up to 10.2 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, just under a block a game while shooting over 60 percent from the field.

Some fans questioned the Plumlee signing when it happened but it has turned out to be one of the best value signings of the offseason, as he is a low-cost contributor who could be a trade asset or a piece on a good team.

Troy Weaver has to be commended for having an eye for undervalued talent but some credit also has to be given to Dwane Casey, who is getting the most of pretty much everyone on this roster not named Sekou Doumbouya.

The Pistons’ young players and veterans are all playing well, and this team is not far from going from a “good” bad team to just good.

You can’t take too much from two in a row over struggling teams but the Detroit Pistons are building something exciting.
