As a result of the Lockout, NBA teams will only play a couple of preseason games. Not the worst thing ever. Those two games the Cavaliers will play will be against the Detroit Pistons, as the team announced earlier today. One game at their place, and one game down at the Q.Across the League, the preseason scheduling was driven from a geographical standpoint to minimize travel and save time in this shortened format. The Clippers are playing the Lakers, Nets playing the Knicks, and with that Cleveland vs. Detroit obviously. The formal announcement coming earlier today by the Cavs:

21-year old Greg Monroe got into the starting lineup in the second half of the 2010-11 season as a rookie and he played very well for the Pistons.

The decision as to whether the veteran guard is a Cavalier on the regular season's opening night is for now largely in the hands of Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant.
He said he was impressed by the Pistons' collection of young talent highlighted by Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight and Austin Daye. He said he hopes the Pistons re-sign unrestricted free agents Tayshaun Prince and Tracy McGrady and restricted free agents Rodney Stuckey and Jonas Jerebko.
Should the Cavaliers use the new amnesty clause and get rid of Baron Davis' contract?
Ben Wallace was back in the gym Friday, pushing his body to determine if it can give him one more year with the Pistons. It's not a slam dunk, but it sure is pointing in the right direction, Keith Langlois writes for True Blue Pistons.
With the National Basketball League set to tip off in 24 days, free agency rumors are abound. With the Cavaliers looking to build through the draft while developing and coaching up younger talent, one of the men who could be tasked with a mentor-based role in 2011-12 is veteran shooting gaurd Anthony Parker who the team is reportedly looking to lock up for at least another two...
Now that the NBA is almost back to business as usual, what are the issues confronting Joe Dumars and Lawrence Frank? Keith Langlois looks at what challenges are ahead in the short run-up to the expected Christmas Day opener of the NBA season for True Blue Pistons.
When the Pistons signed Tracy McGrady to a one-year deal before last season, he told president of basketball operations Joe Dumars that he was going to return to his old form.
