It’s that time of year when fans argue about the new NBA 2K24 player ratings, including those for the Detroit Pistons.

The Pistons received an 80 overall as a team, which is surprising considering they only won 17 games last season and were the worst team in the league. The Hornets, Magic, Spurs and Wizards (79) were all lower than the Pistons, so congratulations Detroit gamers, your Deeeetroit Pistons aren’t the worst team in the game to play with!

The Pistons’ NBA 2K24 rating was largely based on their perimeter play, which got an 86 overall thanks to Cade Cunningham, Bojan Bogdanovic and Jaden Ivey. But the game-makers are not big believers in the Detroit bigs, as the Pistons got just a 67 overall for inside scoring (ouch).

So if you are playing with the Detroit Pistons (or coaching them in real life), you might want to stay away from the two-big lineups and instead surround Cade Cunningham with shooters.

There weren’t any big surprises in the Pistons’ NBA 2K24 ratings, but it will be interesting to see some of these go up by this time next year.

The top three guys are predictable, but beyond that there is plenty to debate:

  • Cade Cunningham: 84
  • Bojan Bogdanovic: 82
  • Jaden Ivey: 80
  • Jalen Duren: 79
  • James Wiseman: 78
  • Monte Morris: 78
  • Marvin Bagley III: 78
  • Isaiah Stewart: 77
  • Ausar Thompson: 76
  • Joe Harris: 76
  • Alec Burks: 76
  • Killian Hayes: 75
  • Isaiah Livers: 74
  • Marcus Sasser: 70
  • Jared Rhoden: 69

A few things stand out to me here. I would have Monte Morris and Isaiah Stewart higher than James Wiseman and Marvin Bagley III. I suppose if you turn the injuries off, MBIII could be a force, and so could Wiseman if you ignore his defense, but the Morris and Stewart have at least proven themselves to be able to finish a season and contribute.

I would have Alec Burks ahead of Joe Harris, who can’t guard anyone and may not even be in the rotation next season.

By the end of next season, I would wager that Ausar Thompson is 4th or 5th on this list.

I was also glad to see that Jaden Ivey got the same rating as Bennedict Mathurin. Mathurin got the nod on the All-Rookie first team even though Ivey arguably had a better season, so it was good to see someone noticed that.

My guess is that Cade Cunningham will have broken into the 90’s by next season and that Jaden Ivey won’t be far behind, and that this will likely be the final season in which Killian Hayes is rated as a member of the Detroit Pistons.

This seems like a team you can have some fun playing with, just avoid passing it into the post and you might consider turning off the injuries just to be safe.
