Pistons’ Smith, Drummond, Monroe Won’t Start Together?

Vincent Goodwill: Have you internally made the decision that someone of those three (Josh Smith, Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe) has to come off the bench? Or have you decided they can’t play together in stretches?

Stan Van Gundy:  I think the second would be closer. I think there are situations where we’ll play bigger and play them together.

Vincent Goodwill:  Sometimes it worked last year.

Stan Van Gundy: I was gonna say that. What I don’t think will happen is it’ll be our primary lineup. I’ll go into camp, probably, I think I’m pretty open-minded but this will be the most open-minded I’ve ever been in coaching. I think if you look at the positions … people who watched us all the time, fans, media, coaches, whatever — if I gave 15 people and (asked) who would start, I might get 15 different lineups.

Maybe what emerges is those three guys start at 3-4-5. I don’t anticipate that would be the case but even if they do, that won’t be the lineup that gets the most minutes. It can be effective against some teams and some lineups.
