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.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.

*Pistons-Spurs Preview* =======================


Detroit (23-34) at San Antonio (40-16), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The San Antonio Spurs ended a mostly successful nine-game road stretch with a tired performance at Phoenix.

After a four-day layoff, they now ease into eight of 10 at home starting Wednesday night against the struggling Detroit Pistons.

The Spurs will be giving away Kawhi Leonard bobbleheads beforehand, but Leonard isn't a lock to be on the court. The starting forward has missed 14 games with a broken bone in his right hand, and though he's resumed full participation in practice, he'll be a game-time decision for the rested Spurs.

"A good combination," guard Manu Ginobili said. "Having time to rest, then a good practice, and being home is what we all like."

The Spurs (40-16) fell 106-85 to the Suns on Friday to complete their annual rodeo road trip with a 6-3 record, and they played the last four games without top scorer Tony Parker.

San Antonio had 18 turnovers and shot a season-low 34.9 percent, going a season-worst 2 of 21 from 3-point range.

"They made shots, we didn't, and we turned it over," coach Gregg Popovich said. "It wasn't bad. Our ninth road game in a row, they played hard and we couldn't stick it in the hole. It happens. It was a great trip. Six and three on that trip under the circumstances of all the guys out and back and forth, I thought they were great."

Danny Green led the Spurs with 15 points but reserve guard Patty Mills scored four on 2 of 14 from the field. Mills had averaged 21.0 points and 54.0 percent shooting in his previous seven, and he committed three turnovers Friday, the first time he topped two this season.

"The expectation is to make the right decision looking after the ball, not turning it over, getting the team in the sets, in the offense, taking charge as a leader, and I think that from the time I've been here I've definitely learned that from Tony," Mills said.

Parker will likely continue watching his backup against Detroit as he's nursing an extensive list of ailments.

Part of the Spurs' trek was a stop in Detroit on Feb. 10, a 109-100 loss that was Parker's most recent game. Marco Belinelli led San Antonio with 20 points while Brandon Jennings' 21 paced six Pistons in double figures.

Detroit (23-34) has dropped five of six since and heads to Texas for this game and a matchup with Houston after back-to-back home defeats. The latest was a 104-96 loss to Golden State on Monday.

"We took it to the finish line. We just didn't cross it," said interim coach John Loyer, whose team was held to 13 fourth-quarter points and fell to 2-5 since he took over for Maurice Cheeks. "You get to the last 2 or 3 minutes, that's what you are trying to get to in the NBA game. We have to get to the point where we can finish them."

Detroit fell to 4-17 against Western Conference opponents, and it has lost nine of its last 11 road games.

"I think our next couple road games are going to be tough against San Antonio and Houston," reserve Kyle Singler said. "Those are two very good teams so we're going to have to play well and continue our success on the road like we had in the beginning of the year. It's going to be tough but we can do it for sure."

The Spurs have won three straight at home against the Pistons.
