    Aren't you supposed to have accomplished something to be considered an "established veteran"? What has Reggie accomplished in his career other than expressive sneaker art?

    In December, 2015, he was named the NBA Player of the Week on two occasions.

    There goes Zack Collins..the Bill Laimbeer prototype...could have been the PF that helped Dre..... Guess it is Kennard...unless the Hornets try to keep him home...

    Both of my daughters love that movie. The cruiser has even sung some tunes in shows.

    Gave a nice interview. Seems like a likeable guy. This team has so many needs.

    Kennard looks pretty good. He's a great shooter and he can go off the dribble. I like that he is a lefty.

    Mature body too. He won't need to put on 25 lbs to play in the league, he's probably close to his NBA game weight right now.

    Now I need to find out what his weaknesses are.

    Our New JJ Redick?
    Maybe a bit slow and not a good defender.

    He looks fantastic on offense. If he can translate his shooting to the Pros, then it's not such a big deal if Pope walks.

    He's ambidextrous. He was the QB on his HS football team and he threw right-handed. He throws a baseball with his right hand. His dad made him start training with his left hand when he was 6 years old.

    I'm ok with the pick. At least we drafted a shooting guard who can shoot the ball.

    Welcome to Detroit, Luke from Duke!

    As George Blaha would say: Luke from Duke for a deuce! :)

    We were so close to Monk!

    I know nothing about Kennard, but I'm not feeling this one. I don't see the Pistons fight club offense highlighting his game.
