While all the starters return from last season's championship team, the Pistons' bench has been almost entirely overhauled -- for the better, according to the players.
Instead of Corliss Williamson and Mehmet Okur, Larry Brown's options now include Antonio McDyess, a former All-Star who used to average 20 points as a starter, and Carlos Delfino, a 22-year-old with a terrific perimeter game. And those are just two of the players expected to help out when Detroit's top five need a boost.
