Unless the amnesty Bargs they are close to being capped out. There are no locks to make the playoffs especially for a current 10 seed. 76ers made it last year and won a round and they aren't making it this year. Pistons are the same as the Raptors except they have 30 mil in cap room this offseason.
Yea, despite being terribad this season, I think the Pistons are in better shape moving forward than the Raps. Their cap situation is enviable, and they are a market that has more draw than Toronto (obviously it's not LA or NYC or Chicago, but it's still probably more attractive than switching countries). They have an elite player in Monroe, a
promising rookie in Drummond, a decent prospect in Brandon Knight, and Rodney Stuckey (who probably serves them well as a trade piece). PLUS they have a top-10 draft pick coming up, which they might be able to turn into Bennett or Muhammed to fill their SF hole. All in all, they are in decent shape moving forward.
