As usual, the Pistons will be kicking off training camp with a free scrimmage at Oakland University:
The Detroit Pistons will host an open practice inside the Oakland University Athletic Center Arena (The O'Rena) on Thursday, October 2 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Admission is free for all fans and Oakland University students and doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to park in the Oakland University Athletic Center Arena parking structure or at the Vandeberg Hall parking area.
[...] "The open practice is a great event where our fans can come out and get a preview of this year's team," said Joe Dumars, Pistons President of Basketball Operations. "Having the practice free to the public is a great way to kick-off training camp and get the community excited about the upcoming season."
All in all, it doesn't sound like a bad way to spend an evening if you're nearby. If you plan on going, drop a line in the comments -- I just may venture out myself. Also, take some pictures and either add them to the DBB Flickr pool, the DBB Facebook page or email them to me so I can post them here.
