Analysis: Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars calls Smith a two-way player. He says he looks forward to the forward blending his talent with the team's young nucleus. Detroit will likely start the 27-year-old Smith it its frontcourt with 23-year-old power forward Greg Monroe and center Andre Drummond, who turns 20 next month. The backcourt will include Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8 overall pick in the draft.
