The Detroit Pistons open training camp with an 18-man roster. Out of this group, 14 players have full salary protection for the 2016-17 season, while the other four were signed to non-guaranteed deals. Here is the breakdown:
Full Salary Protection: Aron Baynes, Reggie Bullock, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Andre Drummond, Henry Ellenson, Michael Gbinije, Tobias Harris, Darrun Hilliard, Reggie Jackson, Stanley Johnson, Jon Leuer, Boban Marjanovic, Marcus Morris, Ish Smith
Partial Salary Protection: None
Roster Outlook: The 15th roster spot will likely come down to the third-string point guard competition between Brown and McCallum. Freeman and Jovanovic will likely be released late in the preseason, so they can be designated to the Pistons' D-League team, the Grand Rapids Drive.
2016-17 Salary Cap Outlook: The Pistons should start the regular season about $13.7 million above the salary cap and $5.41 million below the luxury tax line.
