No longer rebuilding, Pistons hope to improve in offseason

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Pistons have finally moved beyond the rebuilding stage.

After their first playoff appearance since 2009, Stan Van Gundy's Pistons can look ahead to the offseason knowing that if they simply keep their current starting lineup intact, the future could be fairly bright. That's not to say that Detroit will stand pat, but the team's key players are young enough that the Pistons can envision more success if this group stays together.

"We're now not at the time of wholesale change anymore. We went through that," said Van Gundy, who just wrapped up his second season as Detroit's coach and team president. "We're not making deals just to make deals. We like the guys we have, but we've got to add to it, and if there's ever a chance to make a significant upgrade - yeah."
