Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Boston faces Indiana while Dallas takes on Minnesota The NBA’s Conference Finals kick off Tuesday, with four of the NBA’s best teams vying for a spot in the NBA Finals. All credit due to them, but the Indiana Pacers feel like they are a step or two behind the other three teams still in the equation — the NBA’s winningest team, the Boston Celtics, who will face the Pacers, and the Dallas Mavericks, led by superstar Luka Doncic, and the Minnesota Timberwolves, who just dethroned the defending champion Denver Nuggets. Each series has an every-other-day schedule, s ..read more

Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports And if no announcement is made that means Detroit feels like they have a legitimate shot at Tim Connelly It has been roughly five weeks since the Detroit Pistons announced it was formally on the hunt for a president of basketball operations to oversee all basketball decision-making. The team hired a high-profile search firm, TurnkeyZRG, to run the search, and final candidates have been trickling out. It now feels like a final decision is imminent, and if the team doesn’t manage to name a president soon, it could, ironically, provide even more clarity on the organiz ..read more

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports It sucks, we know The Detroit Pistons wrapped up the worst season in franchise history this year, and their reward for all that losing was a familiar sight. They dropped from the No. 1 slot in the lottery to the lowest possible spot they could — the No. 5 overall pick. It’s the second-straight year they’ve fallen from No. 1 to No. 5 and the third-straight year they’ve picked No. 5. It sucks. Let’s unpack it. 1. One (safe for work) word to describe the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery, and why. Sean Corp: Inevitable. Take that how you will. It was either a mathematical ..read more

The Big Question: Should the Pistons keep or trade the fifth pick in the NBA Draft?

Photo by Jeff Haynes/NBAE via Getty Images There will be no bigger debate between now and the NBA Draft There are so many reasons it is a bad idea for a rebuilding team to trade lottery picks. Young talent that is cost-controlled for 7-8 years, ensuring you are getting players on the upswing instead of the downswing, letting young players grow together and form real chemistry. So why does it seem to make so much sense for the Detroit Pistons to trade this year’s draft pick? This year isn’t like any other year, and this sorry franchise is not like other sorry franchises you are used to. The Cas ..read more

Photo by Chris Schwegler/NBAE via Getty Images Who will join Jaden Ivey and Ausar Thompson in the fifth overall club? It always felt inevitable. The Detroit Pistons, coming off the worst record in the NBA and worst season in franchise history, will be picking fifth overall after falling four spots in the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery. Fate (or math) decreed this seemingly cursed team would not be awarded any lottery luck and would instead fall to fifth overall — their most likely individual landing spot, statistically speaking. What’s the downside of picking fifth overall in an extremely unsettled NB ..read more
