There are still some questions about how coach Dwane Casey will stack his rotation, but the final two exhibition games this week will also determine which one out of Joe Johnson or Christian Wood will make the final cut.
The Pistons would love to be able to carry both of them in the regular season but the logistics simply don’t work. One way to get beyond the dilemma is to open a roster spot through a trade but the problem is that trades in the NBA are not plentiful in the fall. In the past decade, there have been about a dozen October deals, which makes a Pistons deal to open an extra spot on the roster tough, at best. Wood has had a couple solid games so far in the preseason and he will continue to audition for his job.
