Stan Van Gundy said he wants to "get more" out of Stanley Johnson next season. "We were disappointed in [Johnson's] year last year, but in fairness, I think we played him out of position a lot," said Van Gundy. "We move Stanley into a position to fight for minutes at the three and maybe even in smaller minutes at the four where I think he has a great chance to be successful." Johnson spent a lot of time at SG last year, but with the additions of Avery Bradley, Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway, Johnson should be able to spend more time at his natural SF position. There's also been speculation that he could start there, so he's on the radar as a late-round flier.

Stanley Johnson "has a legitimate path to a starting job" according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press. It's fair to say that Johnson hasn't lived up to the hype in his first two NBA seasons, but he has a huge opportunity in front of him after the Pistons traded away their starting small forward in Marcus Morris. Johnson played just 17.8 minutes per game compared to 32.5 for Morris last season, but he now has a chance to be a 30-minute player. Pistons assistant coach Bob Beyer said he's noticed a "more mature" Johnson this offseason, so he's certainly entered the discussion as a possible late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Stanley Johnson likely won't play in the Orlando Pro Summer League. After a disappointing sophomore season, Johnson said he would be willing to play in the summer league. However, Van Gundy wants him to head down to Orlando with the team, but only practice. "I think what we might do with him is – and he talked it about when he left – go down and practice with us," Van Gundy said. "[Reggie] Bullock did it with us last year. Go down and practice, but not anything else." Johnson needs to improve his shooting and offensive efficiency if he hopes to crack the Pistons rotation and earn increased minutes next season.

Stanley Johnson started on Wednesday vs. the Magic in the season finale, but finished scoreless in 20 minutes. The Pistons rested Marcus Morris to get a look at Johnson, but the second-year wing missed all five of his shots and finished with a single rebound. Johnson has an NBA body, but his development has stalled on the offensive end -- he shot just 35.3 percent from the field and 29.2 percent from 3-point range this season. Johnson said he wants to go to summer league for the third year in a row, so we'll get a good look at him over the offseason. His outlook for 2017-18 isn't great at the moment with Marcus Morris under contract for the next couple of seasons.

Stanley Johnson scored 13 points with four rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Rockets on Friday. He'll probably be getting more run the rest of the way, but Johnson is tough to trust in fantasy because he hasn't played very well. He'll be an option to stream on Sunday.

Stanley Johnson did not score in 14 minutes against the Nets on Thursday, adding five rebounds, one steal and three turnovers. The Pistons may get a look at Johnson at some point next month, but he's just not playing well enough to stash in almost any fantasy league.
