The Detroit Pistons could become major players in the trade market this season due to excess on their roster at guard and small forward.

Josh Smith figures to start at small forward, but will also spend time at power forward. The Pistons also have Kyle Singler, Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome at small forward.

“We have a lot of flexibility,” Smith said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if guys played different positions in the backcourt or along the front line, depending on matchups.”
