Free-Agent Centers

Jalen Duren is the starting center of the future for the Detroit Pistons, but he is not yet a great rim protector or defender in general. They could use a backup big who can stretch the floor and one who can block shots.

-Nicolas Claxton
-Isaiah Hartenstein
-Mason Plumlee
-Andre Drummond
-Mike Muscala

It's hard to imagine the Pistons going after Claxton unless they were to trade Duren, but he is the type of rim protector they need.

Hartenstein might not be a bad second option, as he is blocking over a shot per game in 25 minutes for the Knicks and is also a very good rebounder. He'd be a high-level backup who might not break the bank.

I always like the Plum Dog and am still not sure why Weaver paid to trade him away, but that's another story. He's a solid backup who can rebound, though he doesn't block many shots.

Andre Drummond is still one of the best rebounders in the game and has improved on defense. It would be nice to see him back and to go out on a high note with the team where it all started.

Mike Muscala has given the Pistons a nice boost as a stretch five, and on a minimum deal, I wouldn't mind having him back.

The Detroit Pistons have options, but they are dwindling quickly, so they will have to rely on the trade market as well as free agency to fill out over half of their roster in the offseason.
