Brandon Jennings is loving life as a Piston right now, but what happens if he doesn’t start? Joe Dumars isn’t sure who will start at point guard for the Detroit Pistons this season, but according to MLive, Dumars says every guard on the teams has told him that they plan on starting. “So did Will Bynum, so did Peyton Siva, so did Brandon Jennings. They all told me that when they signed,” president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said with a laugh. “I was like, ‘Yeah, you are. You right, bro. I said that to all of them. ‘You right, bro.’” That decision will be up to new coach Maurice Cheeks and he hasn’t committed to anyone yet, according to Dumars. “I don’t know yet,” Dumars said Tuesday after introducing Jennings in a news conference at The Palace. “I can tell you what Mo has told every guy from Chauncey to Brandon to every guy. He said, ‘Look, come in and earn it. I’m going to give it to whoever earns it.’ He said that to every single guy. “He said, ‘Joe I’m not going to put myself in a trick box where I’m committing myself to something and it doesn’t play out.’ So, he’s kept it wide open. He said, ‘Let’s see what happens.’ That’s exactly what he said. That’s exactly how it’s going to be.”
