After his first season in a Detroit Pistons uniform, Brandon Jennings realizes he needs to improve his game.
“I’m going to be honest. It was my worst year,” Jennings said in an interview with the Detroit Free Press. “It was just the worst season ever, a roller coaster.”
Jennings averaged a career-low 15.5 points per game last season and had a career-high 2.7 turnovers per game. However, he did average 7.6 assists per game, which was also a career best. Read More…

Nick Fairley and Miguel Cabrera are two big names right now in the Detroit sports world. Fairley has recently made headlines for his eating habits, while Cabrera has received a lot of attention over his August hitting struggles.
What do these two athletes have in common? Both have been recipients of DUI’s, and one more Detroit athlete is set to join that list.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Detroit Pistons forward Greg Monroe was suspended Sept. 9 without pay by the NBA for a DUI he received in February, just hours after a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
This week on Horsepower, Cameron Billes returns with Colin Jackson to recap Detroit’s busy offseason, discuss Greg Monroe’s DUI and reminisce on Chauncey Billups’ terrific career.
After a few weeks of inactivity, the Detroit Pistons made headlines again after signing two key players in one night.
On July 15, Stan Van Gundy decided to sign veteran players D.J. Augustin (two-years, $6 million) and Caron Butler (one-year, $4.5 million with a team option).
Augustin, 26-years-old, is a traveled point guard who has spent plenty of time in the NBA dealing with adversity. In his six seasons in the league, Augustin has played for four teams, including division rivals Chicago and Indiana.
Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh might have hogged the headlines during the start of the NBA free agency period, but Stan Van Gundy and the Detroit Pistons have signed a few players that will make sure to make some headlines of their own.
Detroit’s biggest signing and first free agent acquisition this summer was guard Jodie Meeks, who bolted from the bright lights of Los Angeles and signed a three-year, $19 million deal with the Pistons.
Stan Van Gundy made his first roster move June 26 when the Detroit Pistons drafted Spencer Dinwiddie with the No. 38 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
Dinwiddie played point guard for the University of Colorado, and stayed through his junior year. This past season he averaged 14.7 points and 3.8 assists in over 31 minutes per game.
Dinwiddie has incredible size for a point guard, measuring 6-foot-6 and having a wingspan of 6-foot-8.25.
This week on Horsepower Cameron Billes returns to the mic. Billes and Colin Jackson debate potential Pistons draft choices, Greg Monroe’s future with the team, the highs and lows of the last season plus what to look forward to during the summer for the NBA.
With the 38th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Detroit Pistons select…Glenn Robinson III?
What at once might have seemed like an impossible feat, the Pistons now might have a legitimate chance at taking the Michigan forward with their only pick in the upcoming draft on June 26.
Robinson III was once considered a lock to be a lottery pick, but after an underwhelming sophomore season, his draft stock has fallen considerably.
It seems so long ago that the Detroit Pistons were the perennial powerhouse in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. What happened to the team that made it to six consecutive Eastern Conference Finals and back-to-back NBA Finals appearances?
June 1 marked the 10-year anniversary of when the Pistons beat the Indiana Pacers 69-65, which sent them to their first Finals appearance since 1990.
Mark Jackson, the head coach for the Golden State Warriors, was fired May 6 after spending three season with the Warriors.
The Detroit Pistons are in search for both a new general manager and a new head coach. While many fans would love to see Jackson manning the sidelines in Auburn Hills, the Pistons would be wise to let Jackson coach somewhere else.
Cameron Billes and Colin Jackson bring you the ninth edition of Horsepower.

With five games remaining in the regular season, the Pistons currently are the owners of the eighth worst record in the NBA. Unfortunately for Detroit, the NBA has a draft lottery where any of the teams that do not make the playoffs can move up the draft order or move down.
Detroit’s first-round pick is top-eight protected this season, meaning that if they get a pick in the top eight, they keep it. If it falls to ninth or lower, Detroit must give up the rights to their pick to the Charlotte Bobcats.
The 2013-14 NBA season is winding down, and the Detroit Pistons are sitting outside of the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
What personnel deserves to return next season? Horsepower takes you through “Trash ‘Em or Keep ‘Em” where the coach, general manager and each player are evaluated and given a final result of ‘trash ‘em or ‘keep ‘em.
