It is a new era of Detroit Pistons basketball.
General manager Troy Weaver has turned over the entire 15-man roster in less than two years on the job. The addition of No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham, a player with guard skills, forward size and unlimited potential, and a slew of other young players have people excited about this team’s future for the first time in a long time.
To get you ready for the Pistons and the NBA season, which begins Tuesday night, we’re holding a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on Tuesday at 11 a.m.
The Pistons, who went 2-2 in the preseason all without Cunningham (ankle sprain), open the 2021-22 regular season schedule with a home-and-home against the Chicago Bulls — Wednesday in Detroit and Saturday in Chicago.
The Detroit Free Press is Michigan’s largest newspaper, and Omari Sankofa II is on his second year covering the Pistons for the Free Press. He is a graduate of Michigan State and Detroit Renaissance High School.
