The Detroit Pistons and Zelle® have teamed up to help Detroit's community invest in their financial future and learn how to protect themselves from fraud and scams.


The Detroit Pistons and Zelle® have partnered on a custom video series showcasing Detroit Pistons players and their personal experiences with money management and digital banking safety. During the first video in the series, Rodney McGruder discusses how not only has he invested in his game and physical fitness, he has also dedicated himself to successfully managing his finances.

In the second video, Isaiah Stewart talks about the importance of investing in his health and staying safe online.


For every Pistons block this season, $25 will be donated to Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan in support of their financial literacy programming.


Our players share some tips that fans can take to protect what matters.
