Not a long drive.  More like a three quarter 6 iron.

I'm pretty sure Matta exhausted his eligibility a while ago
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Derrick looked like he has worked on his jumper.  Pull up 3 off the dribble that looked smooth, though he missed it.  Played the entire scrimmage, only makes off of lay ups.  Dwight played limited minutes, still recovering from a leg injury.  Not getting good lift on his jumper yet.   Very gracious afterward.  Noticed my Marquette swag and commented.  Appeared to be bff's.

Henry in danger of falling  out of the Piston rotation.  Still can't defend.  Derrick not on the Drive opening day roster.

Hopefully Derrick can make the team at some point down the road.

Dwight had 21 points 12 rebounds and 4 assists in the Grand Rapids win tonight. Looks like he is healthy again.

Hopefully there will be a big crowd there to cheer him and Dwight on.

Henry scored a lot of points, but he still has a gunner's mentality.    Also has a unique skill set for 6'11.   Even in the G-league, gets a defensive rebound dribbles it upcourt, backs down a defender and shoots a fallaway J without anyone else touching the ball.    Ah, well.   He would be a junior in college right now.    By the time his rookie contract is up and he signs his next deal, he is going to be ready to do some damage in the League.

So how does this work with a two way contract? Is it a game by game call up?
Is it a 10 day concract?

Dwight was the best guard on the floor.    Never made a bad decision, got to the rim, made jumpers, played good defense.  He has taken what he did at MU and improved on every facet of the game.    The problem is that he is not 6'3 (as listed) and he lacks that one exceptional skill that stands out.   And the Pistons are pretty set at PG right now with Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith.    I think he could handle back up minutes in the NBA, but I never root for injuries.

It is a game by game call up. They can be on the parent roster a maximum of 45 days not including days before start of g league and after g league. In order to go beyond that the parent has to offer a full contract. The effect of the 2 way contract is to give each time a 16th and 17th roster spot. Only 13 can be activated for a game though.

It appears that Henry's ability to get into and remain in the rotation for the Pistons is based on how he plays defense.    He wasn't great on Sunday in the G-League.

The Pistons coach is very straightforward about things and has been a big supporter of Henry. Hopefully , Henry can bear down and make the effort on defense. I think it is combination of defense and becoming more efficient on his shooting that will carry the day for him.

Can you please provide detailed info on the type of schedule he's been keeping while with the G League team?  I assume you're his alarm clock, his personal dietician, his personal trainer, his personal physical therapist, his coach, his GM, and his team's owner like you are for...well, every basketball player ever.  Would love to hear the type of work Hank's been putting in from someone on the inside.

Looks like Vander is activated again for the Lakers at their road game against Boston.

Looks like Vander may make a few bucks on this road trip.
