Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 7:01 AM EDT Sep 30, 2018 Dwane Casey didn’t fall for the trap. Trying to gain insight into his decision-making process, a reporter asked which would hold more weight — defense or shooting — when he picks the two wings to start alongside point guard Reggie Jackson, power forward Blake Griffin and center Andre Drummond for the Detroit Pistons when they open the season Oct. 17 against the Brooklyn Nets. “Guys are competing, it’s not going to be a quarterback controversy at all,” Casey said this week after a training camp session at Crisler Center. “We’re going to put the right persons in the right positions — whether it’s the starting group or the second group — that fits.
