The best Detroit Pistons to wear each uniform number
We jump from the 80’s all the way to the 50’s, which shows you how players try to avoid those high numbers, which usually signify you are not long for the NBA.
#55: Delon Wright
Five different players wore this number and Wright was the only one who has had an actual NBA career. Shout out to Luka Garza.
#54: Kent Benson
Benson played for Detroit for 6+ seasons and had one where he averaged 15 points and seven rebounds, which is the best of this group of five. Shout out to Jason Maxiell.
#53: James Edwards
Only played just over three seasons for the Pistons but won titles in two of them as the starting center. Big Buddha was an underrated part of those title teams.
#52: Don Reid
#51: Boban Marjanović
#50: Otis Thorpe
Ten different Detroit Pistons wore this number, but none were as good as Thorpe, who had a long, productive career, including two seasons for the Pistons when he averaged 14 points and 8 rebounds per game.
