    The Pistons will not be going to Vegas for the biggest summer league yet with fans, televised games and colour commentary. NoooooOOo0o. They're participating in Orlando magic mini summer league that is so small the public is not invited.

    http://www.nba.com/magic/news/magic_to_host_airtran_airways_orlando_pro_summer_league_2012.html


    Detroit starts off against Utah Monday July 9th

    Roster includes
    Brandon "the gym rat" Knight
    Vernon "the D-league Dominator" Macklin
    Austin " plankin' ain't easy" Daye
    Kyle "Spanish Armada" Singler
    Meyers Leonard the #9 pick

    unfortunately, Charlie villanueva was cut from the roster. Just like the Dominican republic fiasco, CV retaliated with a tweet; this time with a pair of duck feet, a velasco pickle and a pair of eggs. "lol, that settles it."

    How many years has Daye been in the league?

    Anyway, I think playing in front of no crowd will ready the guys for playing in The Palace once the regular season starts.

    This will be Austin Daye's 4th season...why is he still going to summer camps? I admire his desire to get better, but JJ missed a whole season.. and he is not going..is he??

    I'm guessing that the Pistons were invited because Airtran is hosting and Tay is a luggage spokesperson.
    He'll be demonstrating the proper carry-on luggage.

    LOL. I just made a Tay luggage crack in another thread. :)

    I'm surprised Stuckey isn't on the summer roster. All the rookies need to be there.

    I'm so proud of our forum.
    It only took 5 posts to mention Stuckey playing for the Summer league roster.

    It's going to be weird not seeing Amir Johnson dominating the summer season in Piston practice gear. I know he plays for Toronto but Joe should figure out a way to sign him to some sort of temporary contract for the Orlando summer league.

    I'd send them Daye permanently for a summer league week of Amir.

    Detroit plays OKC on July 11. Durant and Westbrook will probably still be tired from the playoffs. Look for Singler to put up 40+.

    Their window for winning the title will be closing just in time for the Pistons to open up.

    I probably won't be catching many of these events. Between the carpet installation (we will be at the rumpus room around that time) and the refiling of my VHS tape collection (do they have the Dick Cavett show on the DVD these days?), I will be swamped. Good luck to the Pistons.

    If you're watching Dick Cavett, then I'll swing up to Glacier Park and watch those things move.............

    Looks like over half of his shots were 3-point attempts. His effective FG% is over 50%. It looks like Casper is the final piece of the puzzle.

    Voskuhl is the wild card in that mix.

    I can't speak for everyone, but for me, Jake Voskuhl made me forget that Jordan Eglseder ever existed.

    I'm... embarrassingly excited about that roster, and about the draft picks this year. Bring on the flailing young 'uns! And the flailing vets!
