Detroit Bad Boys Podcast: Pistons got better-Ish

Jordan Bellant is joined by myself to discuss day 1 of free agency.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Before the first day of free agency closed, Jordan and Ben Quagliata (aka Quags) got together to discuss all the insanity of the first day. Starting with a look at the market, the conversation quickly turns to the Pistons. Ben discusses both sides of Ish Smith, the good and the bad. Then the guys look at other free agent point guards, their deal and compares it to Ish. Did the Pistons panic? Could the team have been in the market for Dellevadova or even Jerryd Bayless?

After looking at Ish, the conversation opens up to what (or who) is next for the Pistons. That means talking about the Al Horford rumors, the likelihood and what it would take to land Horford in Detroit. That also means a quick look at the team's cap space and players under contract. Is anyone worth losing for Horford? After looking at Horford, Ben and Jordan break down some less expensive and more realistic power forward options.

Following the focus on the Pistons, Jordan turns to the Eastern Conference and Central Division. Quags talks about what teams got better, and what teams leave you scratching your head. The podcast finishes with a quick look at the Summer League! What should Pistons' fans expect and what do the guys want to see from players like Henry Ellenson and Stanley Johnson.
