Pistons think Brandon Jennings, Reggie Jackson can play together


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) The Pistons traded for Reggie Jackson shortly after Brandon Jennings suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in January. 

Jennings is now on pace to return for next season, leaving the team with a pair of point guards. Coach Stan Van Gundy is confident the two can play together in the same backcourt, however. 

"Early on, we talked about that with Brandon, as a staff, so it's not something I'm worried about. I think we know what we'd like to do if they're in the game together," Van Gundy said, per MLive. "I think it can work. I think that we've seen a vision of it already with (Russell) Westbrook and Reggie in Oklahoma City. They were certainly able to find minutes for both of them. So yeah, I've certainly thought about it. But that would be jumping the gun a little bit. The main thing is to get him back."

Pistons' Van Gundy: Jennings' Achilles injury is progressing


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) As Pistons guard Brandon Jennings continues his recovery from a torn Achilles' tendon, coach Stan Van Gundy said he was pleased with how the injury was improving, the team announced.

"That's a difficult injury," Van Gundy said. "So far everything has gone good, so there's a lot of positives."

Jennings tore his Achilles' tendon in January, but he is expected to be ready for training camp.


Van Gundy, Pistons should now focus on G Reggie Jackson


(3/19/2015) With the Pistons all but eliminated from the postseason, nothing is more important at this point in their final games for coach Stan Van Gundy than the progress of guard Reggie Jackson, writes the NBA.com.

The Pistons sent guards Kyle Singler and D.J. Augustin to the Thunder on Feb. 19, clearing the path for Jackson to take over the point guard role. But Jackson's performance to this point has been inconsistent.

"The big thing with him is his aggressiveness and pushing the ball in transition and being aggressive on his pick and rolls," Van Gundy said. "I think when he does that, he's pretty effective. When he's just sort of playing with the ball and a little more tentative, then he runs himself into problems. He over dribbles at times, gets down in traffic. When he's on the attack north-south, I think he's very, very good."

Jackson may have to compete next season with Brandon Jennings, who's been out since late January with a ruptured left Achilles tendon.
