Inside The Cylinder is back! And we’re now officially on the Detroit Bad Boys podcast stream. David Fernandez is joined by new co-host and DBB contributor Matt Way.

In this week’s episode, we talk about the Pistons performance following the first two games of the preseason. This also gives us an opportunity to discuss some of the new players that were acquired this offseason.

Topics include

  • Jerami Grant: The Jerami Grant acquisition. We’ll take a look at his first two games and discuss his (and the team’s) expectations of being a lead offensive player in Detroit.
  • Blake Griffin: Blake Griffin’s health and mindset heading into this season. What should we expect from Blake this season both on and off the court? And how will he affect the young guys on the roster?
  • Killian Hayes: The Pistons selection of Killian Hayes in the draft. He’s shown some positive and negative flashes, any cause for concern? Also, what should we expect out of the rookie point guard moving forward?
  • Saddiq Bey: Saddiq Bey’s confident start to his NBA career.
  • Sekou Doumbouya: SEKOU DOUMBOUYA - destroyer of worlds, hoarder of souls.

All that and more in this week’s episode! And make sure to follow Inside The Cylinder on Twitter @InsideTheCylndr.
