Greg Kelser: Joe Dumars working on Pistons' front line
Greg Kelser said he believes Pistons president of basketball operations
Joe Dumars and his staff are plotting a way to make the team’s front
line better before training camp starts.
Kelser spoke while spending part of Monday morning at Detroit
Communication & Media Arts High School for a building makeover
"I think they will make a move before the start of training camp," said Kelser, the Pistons’ TV color analyst. "There is still some strengthening on the front line that needs to occur, in my opinion. I think the backcourt is pretty strong. … but the front line is where they were sorely lacking last year, especially with rebounding and scoring, low-post scoring.
"I think those are areas that still need to be attended to even though they did get a big fellow in the draft (Greg Monroe). He’s a rookie and you never know what you can count on from rookies. I think he’s going to be OK, but I think there’s still some work to be done."
The addition of Monroe makes the group of Ben Wallace, Jason Maxiell, Jonas Jerebko, Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva better, but the crew certainly doesn’t strike fear into Orlando, Miami or Chicago.
