Why it matters

The Pistons are now 12-36, owning the worst winning percentage in the Eastern Conference and second-worst in the NBA. The teams with the three worst winning percentages in the NBA will have an equal 14% chance of landing the top pick in the 2023 draft lottery.

  • Playing in Paris is a significant opportunity for the Detroit Pistons to represent the team, the NBA, and the city of Detroit on an international stage.
  • The Pistons have played two regular-season games overseas in the past, but this game in Paris marks their third such opportunity.
  • The game in Paris is also an opportunity for Pistons coach Dwane Casey to continue spreading the game of basketball and teaching it in countries outside the US.
  • Casey has spent the last 30 years working in basketball clinics and camps in various places overseas and sees playing in Paris as a chance to continue this work.
  • The Pistons and the NBA have impacted Africa in recent years through the Basketball Africa League (BAL). The Pistons' game in Paris may be an opportunity to expand this impact to other countries.
