In Carlisle's last year as a Piston coach the Pistons had a pretty good bench. Brown inherited that bench it helped him get his first and probably only ring in 2003-04. He then dismantled the bench and basically went with 7 guys last year. (Only 7 guys played more than 50 games and averaged more than 10 minutes a game). I think that with the addition of Davis and Evans as well as Mixiell, whose game I really like, the Pistons have added 3 solid off the bench guys this year. I would expect Hunter's minutes to be cut down. I see the first five off the bench as as Milicic, Maxiell, Davis up front and Arroyo and Evans in the backcourt. I am not exactly sure where Hunter and Delfino will fit in. Delfino could start the year ahead of Maxiell and wind up battling Evans for the #4 spot off the bench. Hunter could be the 12th man on the bench or fall to the taxi squad behind Acker. In any case after a one year hiatis I think that the Pistons may have their bench back, which should bode well for a good year.
