Pregame Reading:

DBB’s own Matt Way has your recap of Detroit’s win last night over the Oklahoma City Thunder, led by Josh Jackson, Killian Hayes, and Isaiah Stewart.

Speaking of Beef Stew, Omari Sankofa II at the Detroit Free Press wrote about Stewart echoing the Wallaces (Ben and Rasheed) this season.

Shawn Windsor at the Freep wrote about Killian Hayes NOT being a bust, which ... yeah, I told you so.

James Edwards III at The Athletic gave us a piece about Troy Weaver quickly and decisively remaking the team in his image... to great optimism among the fanbase.

Part of that optimism is because the Pistons are in position to have a high draft selection. Robel Taame broke down Cade Cunningham, the projected top selection, on his YouTube channel.

Thanks for reading, y’all. Enjoy the game.
