The dream starting five for the Detroit Pistons five years from now
Point guard: Cade Cunningham
Age in 2028: 26
Cade Cunningham is the player the Detroit Pistons are building around and five years from now he could be one of the superstars of the NBA.
Cunningham is the perfect type of player to build a roster around, as he is smart, unselfish, a born leader and can impact winning in a lot of ways.
A backcourt of a fully-realized Cade Cunningham and Devin Booker to go along with an elite defender, a 3-and-D power forward and a big lob threat and shot blocker would pretty much be the ideal team for the modern game.
- Cade Cunningham
- Devin Booker
- Ausar Thompson
- Mackenzie Mgbako
- Jalen Duren
The best part of this group is that four of the five players should be at the beginning of their prime years, so they will still have room to grow while they are hopefully competing for titles.
The roster the Detroit Pistons have now, coupled with the right additions, could be a consistent contender in five seasons, which is exactly what Troy Weaver is trying to build.
