Joseph moved into a starting role with the Pistons last season because he could play off ball well next to Cunnigham, and he averaged 8 points a game and shot 46.5% from 3 last season for the Pistons. He’s the kind of hard-working veteran with real value in a young locker room, showing young players what it takes to be a true professional in the league.
How big Joseph’s role with the Pistons is next season depends on the development of young players such as Killian Hayes. But he will have a role, and now we know he will be in Detroit for training camp (barring an unexpected trade).
