President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars built the Pistons into a powerhouse during the last decade by signing or acquiring either veterans in their prime or younger players ready to blossom into quality starters. Even the starter he drafted during that stretch, forward Tayshaun Prince, was a four-year star at the University of Kentucky.

As the current rebuilding effort takes shape, it’s clear that the primary players will grow before their eyes. Center Greg Monroe and point guard Brandon Knight, the franchise’s centerpieces, rank fourth and sixth in scoring league-wide for players under 22 years of age. Monroe played two seasons for Georgetown and is in his second season in the NBA but he doesn’t turn 22 until June. Knight, who played just one season at Kentucky, turned 20 in December.
