Josh Smith and Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy had a good talk during the weekend.

One thing not on the list is three-pointers. He doesn’t need to shoot many this season.

“I think Josh has a very good understanding of the shots he needs to shoot that are not only best for him, but best for our team,” Van Gundy said. “He’s one of the elite guys in the league around the basket. Last year, stuff inside, right at the rim, in two straight years, he has been 71% and 77%. There’s very few guys at that level. So he needs to get more of those. He knows that. He also understands he really doesn’t need to shoot threes for this team.”
