It’s finally Bojan Bogdanovic time for the Detroit Pistons

Bojan Bogdanovic is back, and that is great news for the Detroit Pistons. Of course, he comes back when the team is playing the supersized Cleveland Cavaliers, so I anticipate less time for Bogdanovic at the four than we will see going forward. Head coach Monty Williams also says that Bojan will be on a minutes restriction in his first game of the season.

His shooting and veteran presence will be a site for sore eyes in the Pistons lineup, and his lack of defensive pressure, well, let’s just say he’ll fit right in. Tonight is probably not the best barometer for how Williams will use his sharpshooting forward throughout the season, but this is the first needed step. Desperately needed.
