In this week’s episode of Inside The Cylinder, Matt and I break down the Derrick Rose trade from all angles. The Pistons were able to net a second round pick and Dennis Smith Jr. in return, so what does all this mean for Detroit as this season moves forward? Will Smith Jr. get a chance to log meaningful minutes? And how will that addition affect the other developmental players on this roster?

We’ll also discuss the following topics

  • Detroit’s West Coast road trip, and the double OT game against the Lakers
  • Dwane Casey’s future with this team
  • Josh Jackson and Isaiah Stewart’s recent performances
  • Whether or not we’re concerned about Detroit’s young core losing too many games

All that and more in this week’s episode!
