Now your thoughts.

3 things to watch for:

Stanley Johnson: He wasn't going to play Summer League but now he is. The Pistons want him to work on things in-game and continue to develop in areas where he was weak last year (i.e. TS%). He dominated Orlando last summer, which possibly created loftier expectations from some fans.

Henry Ellenson: He's the Pistons' first round draft pick, so duhhh. How Ellenson plays in Summer League may also affect how the Pistons' approach their need to get a couple bigs in free agency.

Michael Gbinije: He's the Pistons' second round draft pick so duhhh. Can he run an offense or do the Pistons need to go find some more Ish?

Now your thoughts.
