The Detroit Pistons are welcoming fans from across the state to attend a free open practice at Oakland University Athletic Center Arena from noon to 1 p.m. on Oct. 6.
Head Coach Lawrence Frank will address and interact with fans before the practice, according to Brendan Savage of Mlive.com.
The 2012-13 Detroit Pistons will attempt to incorporate ninth-overall pick Andre Drummond from the University of Connecticut on both the offensive and defensive ends, alongside third-year standout Greg Monroe. The practice will also feature the first glimpse of veteran Corey Maggette, who was acquired by the Pistons in an off-season trade with the Charlotte Bobcats.
The Pistons open the regular season against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at the Palace of Auburn Hills before heading to the west coast for six straight road games.
