Troy Weaver on The Detroit Pistons’ roster
Another great aspect of media day is getting to hear where the organization is at in the eyes of the executive(s) who put the roster together. As moves and roster tweaks are consistently made, often times there is not an opportunity for the public to hear from the folks tasked with establishing the long-term vision of the roster and organization, so hearing Weaver’s point of view on where the team is always helps with expectations of what’s to come.
We’ve heard Weaver often times refer to “restore”, as opposed to the more commonly used “rebuild” term, as he was working to flip the entire roster to be set up for future success, so it’s nice to hear where Weaver sees the Pistons currently in his ‘restoring’ process.
Weaver mentions that he feels this year’s roster is built to better complement each other, which may have not been the case in recent years as the team was limited in terms of financial flexibility, while this offseason Weaver was finally able to gain a bit of that flexibility back through Blake Griffin’s salary coming off of the books and creative deals made by Weaver to maintain nimbleness moving forward.
