Pregame Reading:

The Detroit Free Press’ Omari Sankofa II wrote about how the Pistons’ youth movement showed out despite the loss to New Orleans.

Similarly, Rod Beard of The Detroit News wrote about the expanded roles the Pistons are assigning to their young players. The Restoration Is On.

In draft-related news, Sam Vecenie of The Athletic dropped his latest top-100 (or, top-118) Big Board, and I finally found a mock draft where Detroit gets the No.1 overall pick.

Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
