According to the Detroit Free Press, Jennings had been averaging 15.7 points per game before suffering the injury in January. In February, the Pistons traded for Reggie Jackson and subsequently signed him to a five-year, $80 million contract.

"If he comes back and he's the Brandon Jennings that we had last year, I think those guys can play together quite well," Van Gundy said. "Reggie is big enough (6-feet-3) to guard guys off the ball and everything else. It just gives you two playmakers on the floor together. I think they can be pretty dynamic, but we'll just have to see where Brandon is when he comes back."

According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Pistons are 200/1 long shots to win the 2016 NBA Championship next season.
