If you have not heard, today is Media Day. That means we are inching closer and closer to having real basketball. The offseason was fun and full of shocking moves and excitement. But the slow crawl through August and September gets us to this exciting time.
With the start of training camp tomorrow, the team officially released their training camp roster. There are not too many surprises on it, as we reported on most of the signings throughout the offseason. Most of these guys are not going to make the roster, but have a good chance at a spot on the Grand Rapids Drive if no other team picks them up after the preseason.
Here is the roster:
One notable surprise is the inclusion of Beno Udrih. Udrih spent most of last season as the Pistons 3rd point guard, but got some backup minutes while Reggie Jackson dealt with his knee issue. He was a solid veteran presence, and it is nice to see him back even if it is just for training camp. Maybe Udrih can use a strong training camp to get a contract with another team.
Derek Willis and Landry Nnoko spent time with the Pistons during the summer league, and Dwight Buycks and Luis Montero are the Pistons two-way contract players.
Be patient Pistons fans, basketball is right around the corner.
