Pistons coach Dwane Casey said on Wednesday that his team needs to acquire a starting point guard via the draft or a trade.
"If your point guard is growing and developing, that helps the growth of everyone else," Casey said. The Pistons bought out Reggie Jackson in February, leaving them with injury-prone veterans Derrick Rose and Brandon Knight, as well as Bruce Brown, who isn't a natural point guard. They have emerging talent on the wings and in their frontcourt, especially if they manage to retain Christian Wood, but clearly need an upgrade at PG. Jun 11 11:59 am (EST)
