The young Pistons continued to improve by selecting Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman in the NBA draft. Rodman would not get any playing time, while Dumars average just under 10 points per game in his rookie season as the Pistols finished in 3rd place with a 46-36 record. However, in the playoffs the Pistons would be upended by the Atlanta Hawks in 4 games. After missing the playoffs the Pistons decide to retool by trading Kelly Tripuka to the Utah Jazz for Adrian Dantley, who was one of the top scorers in the NBA.
