    Summer league?

    Is there going to be a Summer league for these younger guys? And if so, where would they play?
    It was fun tracking their D-league stats, I think that with some summer improvement, a couple guys may find themselves on the Pistons bench next season.

    Summer League
    Free agency
    Draft

    Yep, it's the slow season but we'll do our best to keep talking Pistons, even in the slow times.

    I'm just hoping we pull off a great move. If we don't we won't have that good of a chance to win the championship.

    Maybe I'll make the trip out to Vegas again for the Summer League. I went last year, and it was very interesting. Unfortunately, the season came and Maxiell didn't see a second of real minutes after making the entire city of Vegas his personal %%%%%. This, along with have no high draft picks makes it lose a bit of it's intrigue.

    I think the development of Acker, Johnson and Maxiell make this must watch stuff. 1 possibly 2 of them could become important pieces and their development will be telling.

    Prince...au contraire mon ami...I think it will be worth it just to see the progress that Johnson has made. I plan to go just for that.:rockon:

    I think J-Max and Amir Johnson will dominate the Summer League!

    I imagine squads will not be announced until after the draft.

    Alex Acker is a free agent, the Pistons will have to submit a qualifying offer to him by June 30th to retain the right to match any offers he receives (likely none) as a restricted free agent.
