Kyle Singler scored a career-high 20 points and filled the stat sheet in Detroit's blowout win Friday over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Singler checked off every column with a three, eight rebounds, an assist, two steals and three blocks in 37 minutes. Performances like this should lock the rookie from Duke in the Pistons' starting lineup. Singler is owned in just nine percent of Yahoo leagues. While newly acquired point guard Jose Calderon is still working out visa issues, Brandon Knight started and double-doubled with 20 points and 10 assists to go with two threes, six rebounds, two steals and a block. Knight will shift to shooting guard once Calderon arrives in the Motor City and should retain his value. Andre Drummond is still playing few minutes but producing. The rookie center made all four shots (and just 1-of-5 free throws) for nine points, five rebounds and a block. He should be held onto for the moment when Detroit coach Lawrence Frank finally unleashes him.

Pistons Open To Re-Signing Jose Calderon
