Looking back at the best and worst offseason moves by the Detroit Pistons. 

The Detroit Pistons have one of the most young talented rosters on paper. A team that many believed could be a threat to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference didn’t quite make that jump last season. However, heading into the 2023-24 NBA campaign, the stars could be aligning for the young Pistons. If they can remain healthy, this is a team that could emerge as one of the most entertaining teams to watch.

And they added to that hype with a pretty decent offseason. The Pistons added another high-ceiling prospect in Ausar Thompson and the hope is that Cade Cunningham can remain healthy this season – he’s been showing out for Team USA.

Is it unrealistic to believe the Detroit Pistons could compete for a playoff spot?

The big question for the Pistons heading into the season is whether or not they’ll be able to compete for a playoff spot. Before training camp opens, which is about six weeks out, we look back and break down some of the best and worst moves the Pistons made during the offseason.
