Van Gundy never sets a wins total goal at the start of a season, putting his faith in the day-to-day process that carries a team through the 82-game grind. He expects his best Pistons team yet – one with a young nucleus that returns intact since the February trade-deadline deal for Tobias Harris and one with a bolstered bench thanks to the free-agent acquisitions of Ish Smith, Jon Leuer and Boban Marjanovic. “I think we can be a better team, but I think there’s a lot of teams in the East getting better. I think the East got a lot better last year. I think it’s going to get better again and it’s going to be harder. We’ve got to control what we can control, which is being as good as we can be. I’m optimistic about the year, but I’m also realistic about the fact that we’re going to have to be better. We can’t be where we were last year.”

“We wanted to add more size at that spot but not give up athleticism, not give up shooting, and Jon Leuer was really the only guy out there that we thought fit everything that we wanted in that spot. Shot 38 percent from three, 6-foot-11. He’s a very good athlete with great quickness. He’s a guy we had our eye on for a couple of years and we just thought would be a really good fit to what we wanted.” The Pistons had just enough cap space left after addressing those two critical needs to entertain what Van Gundy called “an outside-the-box move” – the offer sheet to San Antonio’s Marjanovic as a restricted free agent. They correctly gauged that San Antonio, after coming to terms with Pau Gasol, wouldn’t have enough cap space left to match their offer to Marjanovic.
