ORLANDO – There are no playoffs once the Orlando Pro Summer League schedule concludes Friday and there’ll be no shiny trophy to take home for the team that can wrap up the week with a perfect 5-0 record. The priorities are a little bit different than they are in the regular season, when winning is the overwhelming objective all 82 times the uniforms are donned.

ORLANDO – Day Two of the Orlando Pro Summer League was return-on-investment day for the Pistons: Kyle Singler’s return from Spain and the return from mothballs of Austin Daye’s jump shot paid off with a win.

Daye scored 24 points and showed flashes that his NBA future really could lie at power forward in a 79-74 win over Orlando that gives the Pistons a 2-0 record with three games left. Singler, for his part, proved himself the immovable object – or at the least the unremovable player.
