The Detroit Pistons currently have two of the best shooters in the league in Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Harris.

Both players are past their respective primes, but will still give you over 40 percent from 3-point range, close to 50 percent from inside the arc and nearly 90 percent from the free-throw line.

But it hasn’t always been this way, as the Detroit Pistons have also had some of the worst shooters in the league over the years. We took a look at the Pistons’ worst shooters from the field, long range and the free-throw line and some of the names might surprise you.

Let’s start with the free-throw line, where the names aren’t at all surprising.

Ben Wallace is the worst free-throw shooter in Detroit Pistons’ history

This was probably the least surprising one, although some people definitely would have guessed Andre Drummond, who wasn’t far behind.

Ben Wallace, arguably the greatest center in team history, only shot 41.8 percent from the free-throw line in his 655 games for Detroit. Wallace never topped 50 percent from the line in his career and shot as low as 30 percent. I honestly think I could do better than that blindfolded using only my left hand.

Drummond wasn’t much better but at least he improved and did shoot over 60 percent twice in his career.

Some big men struggle from the line, that has always been true, but you do have to wonder how two professional athletes could be so bad at one aspect of the game.
