Detroit Pistons: Did they find any shooters?
The Pistons’ shooting woes from last season are well-documented, and remain one of the most important tasks to be addressed in the near future.
The Summer League roster contains several intriguing shooters, particularly incoming prospects from the college level. Charlie Moore, an undrafted guard from Miami, shot 36.4 percent from the three-point line last year.
Moore is joined by former Miami teammate Kameron McGusty, who shot just under 36 percent from three last season, along with leading the Hurricanes in scoring with an average of seventeen points per game.
Buddy Boeheim and Stanley Umude, both undrafted guards from Syracuse and Arkansas, shot above 37 percent from behind the arc last season. Lastly, Kyle Foster, an undrafted guard from Howard, led all of college basketball last season in three point percentage, shooting just under 46 percent from behind the arc.
With today’s game being so centered around spacing and shooting, finding players who can consistently knock down shots from long range is a necessity for a team so depleted in this area.
If the Detroit Pistons can find an additional shooter or two in summer league who can possibly find minutes within the rotation next season, it’ll certainly be a step in the right direction for a team that was second to last in three-point percentage in the NBA last year.
