It’s not clear when Detroit would begin hosting G League games. The Pistons said there are ongoing discussions with G League officials about an expansion team — and the Pistons’ current G League affiliate, which plays in Grand Rapids. The Pistons and the Grand Rapids Drive have an agreement that runs through the 2020-21 G League season.

The G League is the NBA’s developmental league.
