The Detroit Pistons are still in the midst of a total rebuild, and while some parts are falling into place, it’s hard to see this entire roster stay in Michigan much longer. There are pieces of the puzzle moving, and nearly everyone on the team could be a deal or simply sign elsewhere as time goes on. There are a number of Pistons currently playing in Detroit, but based on the franchise’s reputation for always moving players around, it’s safe to say that nearly everyone is leaving sooner rather than later. From this list, I have excluded two-way players who don’t have a lot of playtime.
How long will each player be in the Detroit Pistons?
Saddiq Bey, 22 years old, contract until 2024
By 2024, Saddiq Bey will be a key on a team full of playoff hopes, because then the Pistons should finally be rebuilt. As the second option behind Cade Cunningham and a great point-and-shoot shooter, there’s no reason Bey would contract elsewhere or ask for a trade, and the Pistons would have no reason to trade him. If the two sides get along, Bey could be here for a long time, possibly even his entire career. He has struggled this year, but is adding nuance to his offensive game that will eventually succeed.
Frank Jackson, 23 years old, contract until 2023
After signing with Detroit two years ago, Jackson has quiet breakthrough year. This season, he has fallen a bit but is still worth the small amount the Pistons are paying him. If Detroit wants peace of mind and a raise for him in 2023, he could well be here for a long time as a bench, but if not, expect him to sign a contract. in other place.
Trey Lyles, 26 years old, contract until 2023
In seven seasons, Lyles played for four teams and was not stuck in any squad for more than two seasons. On Spurs, he want more playtime but never really got it, so he moved to Detroit, where he got the same number of minutes. Lyles has always rated me as a good bench player who wants to be the starter, but he doesn’t show enough to do that. He’s not a franchise, so he’ll play in Detroit until 2023 and then find a new home elsewhere.
Cory Joseph, 30 years old, contract until 2013
Cory Joseph prevented young people from playing and delivered the production that was expected from them without the high ceiling. I guess he’s a veteran leader, but not like Kelly Olynyk or Jerami Grant, he is not a player of the caliber to start, even on a bad team. If he doesn’t get traded then Detroit could be the last team he plays for, he may still not sign a contract in 2023 or simply retire.
