Pistons coach Dwane Casey is pondering the right role for Luke Kennard and even though the decision hasn’t been made yet, the Pistons are likely to bring him off the bench.
Kennard has established himself as an elite shooter and he posted better field goal, 3-point and true shooting percentages as a reserve last season. He also had a higher usage rate coming off the bench, an indicator that he received more action as a reserve. The Pistons have a gaping hole at the small forward position while their roster is not that deep so Kennard should be able to see 25-30 minutes even if he’s coming off the bench. He is an interesting flier in the later rounds of drafts.
