According to Pistons GM, Joe Dumars, the Pistons starting point guard job is up for grabs and not guaranteed to anybody, including recently acquired Brandon Jennings. In an interview with Brendan Savage of MLive, Dumars said that the decision is up to head coach, Maurice Cheeks, who says he’s giving it to whoever “earns it.”
In fact, when Billups signed in Detroit, he said he was returning to the Pistons to be their starting point guard.
“So did Will Bynum, so did Peyton Siva, so did Brandon Jennings. They all told me that when they signed,” president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said with a laugh…
… “I can tell you what Mo has told every guy from Chauncey to Brandon to every guy. He said, ‘Look, come in and earn it. I’m going to give it to whoever earns it.’ He said that to every single guy.
