In English, a player the Pistons were delighted to draft with the 44th pick, Joe Dumars and his staff feel they’re getting someone who addresses a smorgasbord of needs. They wanted to get bigger and more athletic on the wings.They wanted perimeter players who fit the mold of what Lawrence Frank wants coming off of his bench: players who first and foremost are motivated defenders. They wanted to get shooters who stretch the floor with their 3-point marksmanship. Check, check and check. The bonus: English is a dedicated gym rat, a rookie of rare maturity and someone the Pistons see as prime leadership material. "Trust me," Joe Dumars told reporters after the draft. "He’ll be the most impressive young guy you guys have dealt with in a long time."

Via a lovely piece from NBA.com. English and his summer league teammates tip off versus Utah in a Summer League battle on NBATV and NBA.com at 2:00 p.m. CT.
