    I expect all three of them to be on the roster, especially Jonas Jerebko.

    Jonas Jerebko is a blast from Joe Dumars' past | detnews.com | The Detroit News

    and another one....

    DETNEWS | Weblogs | Pistons Blog
    He gained nearly 30 pounds in his year in the Italian league, and has a decent game. He LIKES mixing it up in the post, and doesn't shy away from rebounding. That is something we have really needed. He is a good shooter who doesn't take a lot of shots that don't have a good chance of going in.

    I'm hoping that at least two of our rookies sees significant PT. Maybe we spot Jonas at the 4 while experimenting with the 5, whereas Summers at the 2/3, and maybe we groom Daye a little bit more to be the 3/4.

    Summers is 3/4 and not necessarily a 2 at 6'8" 245 lbs.

    Yeah, Summers seems like more of an 3/4. He has good size on him. Quick enough for the 3 and strong enough for most PFs. But maybe not quick enough for the 2.

    Also, I think Daye's skill set and weight plants him as a SF. He's way too lite to play the 4 in the real NBA, even if/when he gains about 15-20 lbs. He's only 200 right now. Daye is just a 2/3 that grew too tall. I found it interesting that he used to be a PG in H.S until he hit his last big growth spurt.

    They why did Dumars draft both Summers and Daye? He's banking on one of them to flop, so he double-wrapped it for good measure? (yeah, that's my metaphor for it, lol)

    How many tweeners can a team possibly need?

    Jerebko with 19 & 5 and Daye with 20 & 10 in the last game against the Cavs.

    Jerebko went from 190 to 225 in 3 months. If Daye can get there, he'll have an easier time during the games.

    If Tay is gone in a couple of years, Pistons would have a SF and a backup.
    As far as tweeners, you can have many. Look at Orlando with Lewis and Turk. And I wouldn't necessarily call them tweeners. Summers has good size. Daye needs to gain some weight. Otherwise he is a 3 only.

    If Jerebko could've made more than 8 out of 14 FT...
    And Summers managed to foul out in 29 minutes. And yes, this means 10 fouls.
    Washington with 12 and 5. Went 4-7 from the floor missing all 3 3-pointers and 4-4 at the stripe.

    The 4 perspective rookies all played over 30 minutes (well Summers didn't manage as he fouled out). I wonder if team was taking a final hard look to see if all 4 can make it to at least the training camp.

    As far as I'm concerned Joe had an excellent draft, we got 3 players who can really play this game, at what level? Well...that has yet to be determined. Daye and Summers BOTH showed in college that they were 1st round talents, Jonas, came out of nowhere, but has shown he can play. Draft grade B, with the chance to be an A in 2 years.

    And why would Joe draft Daye and Summers, if Daye pans out he will be better than Rashard Lewis, if Summers and JJ pan out then we hit the JACKPOT. We needed talent and now we potentially have it.

    He was 4-8 at one point at the line in the 3rd, then hit 6 of the next 8. I still can't figure it out, even in the Italian league, he was not that good of a free throw shooter, despite the fact he has a decent shot from 3-point range.

    Daye has been pretty impressive overall.
