DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.
ORLANDO: GUARDS: JAMEER NELSON will be trade bait all year, as the Magic have no interest in picking up his option after the season . . . ARRON AFFLALO is also on the trade block, and has more on-the-court value than Nelson . . . The Magic will find starter's minutes for rookie VICTOR OLADIPO somehow, at the expense of Afflalo, Nelson (if Oladipo proves capable of handling the point later this year) or both. He's the future in this backcourt . . . E'TWAUN MOORE is back mostly because he's a cheap option at back-up point guard. He's still a fringe NBA player . . . RONNIE PRICE is lucky to have a roster spot anywhere after a brutal year in Portland . . . Second-year man DORON LAMB will have a chance to prove himself as a second-unit scorer. FORWARDS: MAURICE HARKLESS has nice upside, and Orlando will find him more opportunities on offense. He reportedly added weight in an effort to be able to attack the rim more effectively . . . TOBIAS HARRIS is a disaster defensively, but after arriving in Orlando he showed the kind of versatile offensive skill set this team lacks. Expect him to win the starting job at the four . . . GLEN DAVIS will battle Harris for minutes, but as A 27-year-old, injury-prone player, he's more likely to be phased out by the rebuilding Magic . . . JASON MAXIELL will provide some physicality at the four and five . . . ANDREW NICHOLSON is still a work-in-progress, but is showing flashes of becoming an effective stretch four. CENTERS: NIKOLA VUCEVIC is a cornerstone in the Magic's rebuilding project. He's not terribly skilled or athletic, but he's a high-energy rebounder who has the touch to get plenty of baskets cleaning up garbage . . . KYLE O'QUINN had some nice moments in meaningless games late last year. The second-year pro might be able to hang on for a few more seasons as a back-up center.

*Pistons-Magic Preview* =======================


Detroit (19-28) at Orlando (13-37), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Detroit Pistons were just denied their longest win streak in nearly two months by one of the league's top teams. They'll try to bounce back by beating one of the worst for the second time in a little over a week.

Coming off a respectable performance against the defending NBA champions, the Pistons try to avoid a fourth consecutive road loss Wednesday night when they meet the struggling Orlando Magic.

When it visited Miami on Monday, Detroit was attempting to record its first three-game win streak since a season-high, four-game run Dec. 1-7. The Pistons were within four points of the Southeast Division leaders after three quarters but got no closer in a 102-96 loss.

Brandon Jennings scored a team-best 26 points - one above his average in the past six games - and Rodney Stuckey had 20 after being held to one point in a win over Philadelphia on Saturday. The Pistons outrebounded the Heat 51-44, and they forced 21 turnovers but committed 20.

Detroit (19-28) also showed its frustration with four technical fouls.

"We lost by only six points, but a loss is a loss no matter what the number is," said Andre Drummond, who posted his ninth double-double in 10 games. "We will use this as a stepping stone. They've won (the NBA title) two years in a row, so they know what it takes to win and make the smart plays down the stretch of the game."

The Pistons now look to avoid suffering a season-worst fourth straight road defeat for the second time in four weeks. They're 2-7 in road games since Christmas after winning seven of eight.

They had no problems at home against Orlando last Tuesday, leading by no fewer than 14 points in the fourth quarter of a 103-87 victory. With Magic starting center Nikola Vucevic out, Detroit had a 44-22 advantage in points in the paint.

Vucevic's presence made a big difference in the first meeting in Orlando, finishing with 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Magic won 109-92 on Dec. 27. He's played four games after missing 12 with a concussion and has double-doubles in three of them, but the team has gone 1-3.

Orlando (13-37) has lost 17 of 20 overall and owns the NBA's second-worst record.

The Magic shot 39.8 percent from the field and had their worst scoring performance of the season in a 98-79 loss to Indiana on Monday.

"They just did a great job of making us take tough shots," said rookie Victor Oladipo, who again started at point guard for Jameer Nelson (knee). "It's something we need to learn from."

Oladipo tied a season high with 11 assists but shot 2 of 11 from the field for six points. He's shooting 25.5 percent over the past four games.

It's possible Nelson will return for the Magic, who will look to tie their season high with a third straight home win. They're averaging 109.2 points in the last six games at the Amway Center, 13.3 more than their overall average.
