#3: Find the right role players in free agency

With a projected $64 million in cap space this offseason, Langdon and the Pistons have no excuses. This cannot be another Troy Weaver special, where we take on Joe Harris and Monte Morris and push it to next offseason.

The big question is who wants to take our money? If I'm a free agent, the Pistons are not on my list of dream destinations. This is why point number one is even more critical. Not only does Langdon need to hire his guys and establish a culture to show Pistons fans that this is different, he needs to put the league on notice.

Hiring Chris Quinn, having a whole new staff and front office, and changing the vibes in Detroit could be the swing factor for a free agent. If I'm Langdon, and I have Chris Quinn at the helm, I am looking to bring in Caleb Martin and trade for Duncan Robinson. Shooting, shooting, and more shooting. This team needs it, and these two would immediately bring it, along with hustle and winning attitudes from the Heat.

I also would poach Moritz Wagner from the Magic. All he does is work and do the little things. He's what Isaiah Stewart wants to be, except Wagner executes. I also would offer Kelly Oubre a sizable deal, as he brings scoring and a surprising amount of length and defense. If I'm Langdon, I focus on bringing in veteran players who play the right way, and who will complement the young core. The shooting that Martin, Robinson, and Oubre would bring, along with Wagner's winning and nasty attitude, would help Cade and this young core instantly.

They may not be the sexiest names on the free agency list, but this franchise is not primed to sign those sexy names right now. But are they primed to trade for a sexy name?
