New Faces

Some of the new faces that were brought in via free agency and will be at the Detroit Pistons training camp include Jodie Meeks, Cartier Martin, and Caron Butler. Spencer Dinwiddie will also be on hand. Dinwiddie was the first pick for Detroit in the NBA Draft, and while the organization is still feeling out a timetable for his return, the rookie point guard says he is feeling better.

"“In recent weeks I’ve been feeling like I can do all the things I need to do,” Dinwiddie said recently. “I feel good. I feel like I can do a lot.”"

“Like I said, there’s no timetable as far as when I’m officially going to play. I would say in the last couple of weeks I’ve been feeling really, really good.” – Dinwiddie

During a game in January against Washington, Dinwiddie had his left knee buckle on an awkward move on a fast-break. Coach Tad Boyle and teammates ran to him and helped him off the court.

Dinwiddie went from a potential first-round pick to the Pistons’ second-round selection. Detroit considered him despite the injury and sees him as a true point guard with a bright future in the team’s backcourt.
