Former Pistons and current ownership donate time and money to Detroit

On Friday, two former Pistons, Earl Cureton and John Long, teamed up with the non-profit group, The Greening of Detroit, to plant trees at Rouge Park in Detroit.

The trees were paid for fully by the Pistons organization and their “Trees for Threes” initiative that went on all season. The initiative pledged $15 towards the planting of trees for every 3-pointer made during the 2015-16 season, up to $10,000.

The check was presented to The Greening of Detroit on Friday as Cureton and Long, along with a group of students from the city, represented the Pistons at the event.

Along with the planting, Cureton also visited a local school to meet a group of students in April.
