The revamped San Antonio Spurs will take on a very young Detroit Pistons team at the swanky Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. It’s a match-up of teams looking to improve from their respective bleak seasons while developing their talented core of players.
While the Spurs have already won their first preseason game after beating the understaffed Utah Jazz, Dwane Casey will be in charge of a youthful Pistons team yet to see action in the preseason.
Look for both teams, especially the Detroit Pistons, to experiment with different lineups to get a clearer picture of what might happen in the regular season.

Sample of San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs will be arriving without an established All-Star for a very long time in the 2021-22 season. After the loss of DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, it’s up to aspiring stars like Dejounte Murray and Derrick White to lead the Silver and Black.
Pop could give more minutes to Luka Samanic and Doug McDermott in the power forward spot for roster depth. If the San Antonio Spurs want to add more assets for a rebuild, Thaddeus Young and Al-Farouq Aminu could be valuable trading pieces.
The San Antonio Spurs once again surprised everyone at the 2021 Draft by bringing in the very young and talented Josh Primo from Alabama. He could be yet another shaggy gem that the Spurs front office has discovered.
Primo was great in the Summer League and led the team in scoring against the Jazz with an impressive 7/8 shooting.
Main Player – Dejounte Murray
