Jaden Ivey, Jalen Duren show why Detroit Pistons’ future is bright

LAS VEGAS — The Detroit Pistons are far more athletic than they were a month ago. That was clear Thursday night during the Summer League opener in the high desert, when the team’s two lottery picks made their debut.

It took less than 15 seconds for Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren to show what the future might look like — soon.

Ivey, a 6-foot-4 combo guard and the team’s No. 5 draft pick, took a pass as he curled around the elbow and darted into the lane. Duren, meanwhile, cut toward the rim from the right baseline. He gave Ivey a nod. Ivey gave him the ball, a soft toss high above the rim, and Duren rocketed to grab it and it dunk it.
