  • Flint scholarship plan gets $2M from Pistons owner, utility

    The $2 million in combined pledges for a fledgling "Flint Promise" program are the first to be publicly announced since work began more than a year ago. A top aide to Gov. Rick Snyder said last year that the administration, which has been blamed for the emergency, was seeking to raise $5 million. Gores, the founder of Los Angeles-based Platinum Equity and a Flint native who previously pledged $10 million to address needs in his hometown, said in a statement: "Every student who works hard deserves a chance to earn a college degree.

  • Stan Van Gundy talks up Pistons’ rookie Luke Kennard

    Luke Kennard came out of Duke with one of the best jump shots in the draft — he’s got a skill that translates to the NBA and will help the Pistons. The questions were about his defense and athleticism, but he started to answer those when he averaged 17.2 points a game in the Orlando Summer League. “Pretty much what we thought offensively, maybe even did a better job passing the ball than I thought,” Van Gundy said.

  • NBA Trade Rumors: Are Cavaliers Struggling to Move Kyrie Irving?

    Almost a month after he demanded a trade, Kyrie Irving remains a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Moving Irving, the all-star point guard, was always likely to be a delicate process for the Cavaliers. The 25-year-old should command a huge return, likely a combination of draft picks and a star forward to help out LeBron James and Kevin Love right now.

  • From South Africa to sinus surgery: The re-energizing of Andre Drummond

    Pistons center Andre Drummond spent nearly two weeks in South Africa this summer. NEW YORK – Of all that he accomplished and observed during a nearly two-week visit to South Africa as part of the NBA Africa Game and Basketball without Borders, the image that most resonated with Andre Drummond was one that he felt helpless to fix. While slapping bricks on wet cement during a charity event for Habitat for Humanity just outside Johannesburg, Drummond noticed a little boy eating a tree branch and almost lost it.

  • Ish Smith says Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson is looking like old self

    There were a number of reasons the Detroit Pistons took a step backwards last season, but at the top of the list was Reggie Jackson. Stan Van Gundy started to lean on journeyman Ish Smith because the team was better with Smith out there. Detroit has plans to return to the playoffs this coming season, but they will need more out of the point guard spot to do it.
