Luke Kennard says that he's been playing a lot of point guard in the Pistons' bubble camp.
This isn't super surprising considering that Dwane Casey hinted at Kennard handling some PG work in the lead up to last season. With Reggie Jackson gone, the Pistons only have Derrick Rose and some rising sophomores as the PG types on the current roster. Rose definitely operates more as a scorer than an initiator, and if anyone is going to challenge Kennard for more traditional distribution work it might be Bruce Brown. Brown is the player who did a lot of the ball-handling last year and seemed to do well with the opportunity. It's also possible that the Pistons roll with Rose, Brown and Kennard all running the offense at times and eschew a traditional point guard completely. We're a long ways off from next season but Kennard has middle-round potential, so his deployment is something to watch out for.
