    Fun Facts for the season

    -Despite playing his last game for the Pistons before Christmas of 2014, Josh Smith has been counting against their cap for the last five seasons at a annual rate of $5.33M (2020 is the last season that he is on their books)

    -The Pistons used 32 starting lineups across 66 games so far this season and their most commonly used starters went 4-3 in seven opportunities: Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin, Tony Snell, Luke Kennard & Bruce Brown

    -Christian Wood finally broke out from a fantasy perspective after the team decided to change course and move on from long-time starter Andre Drummond, as Wood produced 3rd/3rd round per-game value in 13 games after Drummond left town

    -Blake Griffin’s season was derailed by injury, as the former All-Star produced per-game value outside of the top-250 while his ADP according to Yahoo! was 40th overall.

    -The Pistons were one of the worst teams from a fantasy perspective as they finished the season with only one player inside the top-100 from a total value perspective and every other team in the NBA had at least one player who finished higher than Detroit’s top performer: Christian Wood (8th/7th round total value), though Drummond would’ve been there if not for the trade
