Detroit Pistons Exit Interviews 2020-21

Exit Interview: Jerami Grant’s bet on himself paid off big time

How good can Grant be on a team surrounded by a bunch of developing players?

Exit Interview: Saddiq Bey was ready from the jump, but he still has work to do

And Saddiq Bey is never afraid to put the work in

Exit Interview: The truth about Killian Hayes lies somewhere in the middle

Killian isn’t a bust, but he wasn’t Rookie of the Year either

Exit Interview: Isaiah Stewart became a fan favorite on his way to crushing expectations

The rookie center’s future in Detroit is extremely bright.

Exit Interview: Mason Plumlee out-performed expectations in year one of his deal

The last Plumlee standing acquitted himself well in his return to a starting lineup.

Exit Interview: Did Hamidou Diallo show enough to make him a priority for the Pistons this offseason?

Diallo’s athleticism is appealing, but is he worth the price as a free agent?

Exit Interview: The Josh Jackson Experience could be a one-hit wonder

The No. 1 pick could lead to a reduced role for Jackson going forward

Exit Interview: The education of Sekou Doumbouya continues

The Pistons’ project is still searching for consistency (and an identity)

Exit Interviews: Frank Jackson made (the) most (of) every shot

On a Two-Way contract, Frank made his way into the rotation one shot at a time

Exit Interview: Cory Joseph played the best ball of his career with the Detroit Pistons

Joseph’s brand of controlled chaos is maddening, but he played perhaps the best ball of his career in Detroit

Exit Interviews: Saben Lee showed he is a worthy investment

The second-round pick and two-way player belongs in the NBA, and the only question is whether he’ll get more minutes with the Pistons or Cruise next season

Exit Interview: Tyler Cook earned his way from a 10-day contract with energy, defensive communication

Tyler Cook went from a 10-day contract player to a full NBA contract for the first time in his career

Exit Interview: Wayne Ellington provided spacing to allow the young guys to go to work

Detroit got great production from the last man added to the roster in the offseason

Exit Interview: Dennis Smith Jr. tried his best to reclaim his NBA future

The young guard was once known for offensive explosiveness. In Motown, he was determined to earn recognition on the defensive end

Exit Interview: Deividas Sirvydis saw little opportunity, but showed just enough to intrigue

The seldom-used wing was given an opportunity late in the season and at least was able to show something

Exit Interview: Jahlil Okafor is a big man who can score efficiently in bunches, but not do much else

A reclamation project still in need of reclamation
