Key additions and subtractions
Detroit's big addition this offseason was Cade Cunningham, the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
In free agency, the Pistons added Trey Lyles and Kelly Olynyk. Olynyk joins the Pistons following a 27-game stretch with the Houston Rockets in which he averaged 19.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists.
The most notable loss was Mason Plumlee, who started in 56 games with the Pistons last season.
The Pistons have a decent amount of positional flexibility, with the likes of Cade Cunningham, Jerami Grant and Kelly Olynyk being able to play at least two positions.
Detroit's seven-man rotation is likely set going into the season - Cunningham, Grant, Olynyk, Killian Hayes, Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart and Cory Joseph - but Hamidou Diallo, Josh Jackson, Rodney McGruder, Cassius Stanley and Frank Jackson will each be competing for minutes at the backup guard and forward positions.
