AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons haven't done anything drastic since Stan Van Gundy took over as coach and team president in May, but they have added a few under-the-radar free agents who give the roster a bit more depth.
Now the stage is set for some spirited competition once the season starts, especially on the perimeter.
Detroit signed Jodie Meeks, D.J. Augustin and Caron Butler, all of whom can shoot from 3-point range and potentially free up space for Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith to operate inside.
The Pistons waived guard Peyton Siva and forward Josh Harrellson, but that still leaves a logjam on the perimeter with Brandon Jennings, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Singler in the mix along with Meeks, Augustin and Butler.
