Stan Van Gundy likes shooters. Steve Blake may have other flaws, but he can shoot the rock — a career 38.5 percent from three who shot 35.2 percent from three for the Blazers last year (on draft night Portland traded him to Brooklyn).
Now Van Gundy has Blake to put out there and space the floor.
The Pistons traded for Blake and the Nets will get Quincy Miller, a trade the teams have already announced.
The Nets are expected to waive Miller.
The Pistons are going to start just re-signed Reggie Jackson then they have Blake and Brandon Jennings behind him. Jennings provides playmaking, Blake shooting.
