    I wonder what Gordon would have looked like with Drummond?

    Like an overpaid bench warmer who can't play defense.

    I actually think Ben Gordon is a good player to have on a team. And would have him back.

    Only at $4m a year, not $11m.

    Drummond will play a few games. I don't think Singler is playing, though.

    Andre Drummond Tweets:

    "Great first practice! The rookies looked really good!"

    about Tony Mitchell - "maybe the second most explosive person I know, this man can jump I say second of course cause I'm the 1st."

    I think the aim of these two should be to out show each other on alley oops if they ever play together.

    Hopefully the Pistons won't make the mistake of having them practice on the court at the same time.

    Pistons open with 4 straight turnovers before Drummond gets a put back dunk.

    Siva , Drummond, Middleton, Mitchell and Pope are the starters.

    Lawrence Frank on the bench as an assistant coach for a summer league team seems kind of awkward for him.

    My impressions from the first half against Brooklyn.

    Sophomores looked much better than the rookies:

    English and Middleton were both solid, each with 7 points.
    TRG looked good. A couple of nice dunks.
    Drummond looked shaky at times (many turnovers), but some crazy, athletic things (dunks, blocked shots, steals, etc.), too.
    Singler isn't playing today.

    Siva looks over-matched on both ends of the floor. Guys are blowing by him left and right.
    KCP is 0-for-8. Jitters? Let's see how the 2nd half goes.
    Mitchell looks the strongest of the rookies today...7pts on 3-for-3 shooting, some rebounds and a block, 4 fouls in 14 minutes.

    Corey Lucious looks much better at running the Pistons show than Siva. Peyton made a nice move at the end of the half. Down 36-35.
