Detroit Pistons head coach Monty Williams said on Thursday that he's looking at making changes to give guard Cade Cunningham more space to operate and unclog the paint. Winless in their last nine tries, Detroit searches for answers as their season begins to circle the drain at an NBA-worst 2-10 record. With the Pistons down Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) and Jalen Duren (ankle) in and out of the lineup, most of the remaining usage has flocked to Cunningham to mixed results. The 22-year-old former No. 1 overall pick is averaging a career-high 21.3 points and 7.3 assists, but this double-edged sword also shows an NBA-high 5.0 turnovers and 19.9 field-goal attempts with a 40.2% shooting clip overall. Even when Duren has been out, Williams has opted for starting units featuring two big men that include Marvin Bagley III alongside Isaiah Stewart. If the paint becomes less crowded, it could go a long way in maximizing Cunningham's strengths.
Detroit Pistons guard Cade Cunningham led all scorers with 30 points in Wednesday's 110-101 home loss to Portland. He struggled to stay efficient from the field with an 11-for-27 effort but continued his impressive work from deep with a 5-for-9 record. Cunningham's three-point shooting has gone through a massive improvement, as he's been hitting 44.1 percent of his attempts after nailing only 30.9 of his triples during his first two NBA seasons. On Wednesday, Cunningham added five rebounds to his line with four assists and one steal. The 22-year-old is off to a good start to the year, but he needs to do a much better job in taking care of the ball. Cunningham had six turnovers on Wednesday and has been averaging 5.4 turnovers for the season in 33.4 minutes.
Detroit Pistons guard Cade Cunningham showed in the season opener against Miami on Wednesday that 2023-24 could be a very special campaign for him as he registered a game-high 30 points in a 103-102 loss without a single trip to the free-throw line. Playing in his first regular-season game since Nov. 9, 2022, Cunningham notched nine first-quarter points and never looked back. The 22-year-old finished with 13-for-27 shooting, hitting 4-for-9 from deep, and collected nine assists with three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 36 minutes. Injuries have kept Cunningham back during his first couple of years in the league, but he showed Wednesday that he's ready to take off. Fingers crossed that the 2021 first-overall pick doesn't run into new health issues.
Detroit Pistons guard Cade Cunningham (quad) will suit up for Thursday's preseason contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Cunningham hasn't played since the first preseason game due to left quad tendinitis. Luckily, it sounds like that issue is behind him, so Cunningham should be ready for Opening Night. The hope is that Cunningham will take a step forward this upcoming season. The Pistons have surrounded Cunningham with a decent supporting cast, so he should be a viable fantasy option.
