McDyess might start

Pistons coach Michael Curry said Antonio McDyess might move into the starting lineup, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

If McDyess prefers to come off the bench, I wouldn’t do it. Allen Iverson, Richard Hamilton and Jason Maxiell are already in uncomfortable roles. There’s no sense in spreading that discontent.

But if he has no preference, or prefers starting, I think it’s a good move. Sometimes, Amir Johnson provides quality energy, but he’s a non-factor too often.

Detroit doesn’t seem to have any presence on the glass until McDyess enters the game. That’s why he’s usually the first player off the bench — even ahead of Hamilton.

And with Hamilton, Maxiell and Johnson, the Pistons would still have plenty of punch in the second unit.
