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

It took less than 15 seconds for Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren to show what the future could be like – soon.

Ivey, a 6-foot-4 combo guard and the team’s No. 5 draft pick, was taking a pass when he rolled on his elbow and shot down the lane. Meanwhile, Duren cuts from the right baseline to the edge. He nodded to Ivey. Ivey handed him the ball, a gentle throw high over the edge, and Duren shot up to grab and dun him.
