Cohen’s Analysis: It was an interesting architectural decision. But was it an act of superb vision or desperation?
The Pistons agreed to a mega contract with Josh Smith to form arguably the most intriguing frontline in the NBA. Smith will unite with Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond and one can only assume that the rebuild in Detroit is officially over.
I think the Pistons sneak into the playoffs next year with the supposition that the Celtics, Hawks and perhaps Bucks fall out of the top eight in the East. But is being a No. 7 or 8 seed good enough with a loaded draft class on the horizon next year?
