Late in Monday’s Pistons scrimmage to wrap up practice, Greg Monroe checked out and Austin Daye replaced him. No, Daye isn’t making the radical switch to center. Jason Maxiell slid over to guard Slava Kravtsov. That’s one way to thin out the crowd at power forward, where Daye is jostling with Maxiell, Jonas Jerebko and Charlie Villanueva.
That’s four players for two spots, all of whom have been NBA rotation regulars at some point in their careers.
