Ed Stefanski has been running the Pistons for nearly two months now, and one player on the roster has caught his attention more than anyone else.
It should be no surprise: Blake Griffin has Stefanski's trust and support. He's "the guy" for the Pistons' senior adviser.
"Nobody works harder than that kid," he said. "And plus he has a chip on his shoulder, because the Clippers told him he was gonna retire as a Clipper."
Stefanski didn't have much room to maneuver this offseason. The Pistons were tight against the cap. That still gave him an opportunity to take a swing at Glenn Robinson III.
"I was up at midnight, not thinking I'd field any calls," he said. "When we had a chance at getting Glenn, obviously he liked the situation in Detroit, playing at Michigan, that was an advantage for us."
He said the Pistons paid a premium for Robinson, but the second-year option was too good to pass up.
