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.
TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY was banged up last season, but he enters this year healthy and has the potential to be one of the league's best two-way point guards . . . DEMAR DEROZAN does a nice job attacking, but he's a flawed player unless he develops a jump shot . . . The Raptors want TERRENCE ROSS to attack the basket more often. But whether he develops a three-point shot could determine where he fits into this rotation . . . After a disastrous season in Indiana, D.J. AUGUSTIN will have to earn his rotation spot. Toronto could use his shooting, though . . . DWIGHT BUYCKS comes back from Europe to back up Lowry . . . Versatile JULYAN STONE is an interesting bit piece, as he reunites with GM Masai Ujiri, who brought him to Denver. FORWARDS: Despite all that talent, RUDY GAY's poor shot selection and disinterested defense will have him on the trading block . . . AMIR JOHNSON will get another chance at full-time minutes. Despite some inconsistency, he still has the upside to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH brings toughness and a decent mid-range jumper. He's a second-unit talent, but could challenge Johnson for minutes . . . LANDRY FIELDS is a well-compensated reserve . . . STEVE NOVAK gives them a legitimate shooter among the second unit . . . Toronto will try to shake some of that upside out of AUSTIN DAYE . . . QUINCY ACY will move to the three, likely making this a redshirt year. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS is set to become Toronto's new centerpiece. Talented enough for them to run the offense through him, he's rapidly improving on both ends of the court . . . AARON GRAY will stick around as a decent back-up, a 7-footer who can get in the way defensively.

*Pistons-Raptors Preview* =========================


Detroit (24-39) at Toronto (35-27), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Despite a narrow loss to their lone challenger in the Atlantic, the Toronto Raptors remain in control of their destiny as they pursue their second division title.

The sputtering Detroit Pistons will likely have to resolve their road woes to find themselves in the postseason for the first time in five years.

Toronto looks for its 15th home victory in 19 tries Wednesday night when it hosts Detroit.

The Raptors (35-27) had won nine of 11 prior to Monday's 101-94 loss at second-place Brooklyn, trimming their lead to three games. Toronto was 6 of 23 from 3-point range after shooting 43.2 percent from deep over its previous six games. The Raptors, who haven't reached the playoffs since 2008 and won their only division title a year earlier, had hit 10 or more 3-pointers four times during that six-game stretch.

Kyle Lowry scored 21 while DeMar DeRozan was just 3 for 9 with 14 points.

"It was playoff type of basketball with physicality. I've said it forever that we have to get ready to play that style of basketball," coach Dwane Casey said. "We had three big time turnovers because they got into us at the end of the game."

A return home for three games should serve the Raptors well. They've won 14 of 18 in Toronto after starting the season 4-8 there.

Toronto will be looking for its fourth win in five meetings with Detroit (25-39) after a 112-91 home victory on Jan. 8. Lowry's 21 points led four players with at least 16. DeRozan scored 19 on 3-of-15 shooting but was 13 of 16 from the free-throw line.

That marked the last loss during a season-worst six-game skid for the Pistons, who avoided a fourth straight loss and won for the fourth time in 14 games with a 99-89 victory over Sacramento on Tuesday. Josh Smith scored 24 while Rodney Stuckey added 23 to help Detroit move within three games of eighth-place Atlanta.

However, Detroit is still 8-16 over its last 24, with just two of those victories coming against teams over .500.

The Pistons have also dropped nine straight on the road since beating Washington on Jan. 18. It's their longest road slide since losing 11 in a row from Feb. 23-April 5, 2011, with opponents shooting 49.9 percent and scoring 112 or more seven times in that span.

Twelve of Detroit's remaining 18 games are on the road.

"We're concentrating on feeling more comfortable and we're also trying to play for something," Smith said. "I don't want to sit home in April and think about what I could have done."

Smith is averaging just 12.3 points on 35.3 percent shooting over his last eight games in Toronto.
