With Plumlee, 30, the Pistons got their starting center and a dynamic piece to add to their frontcourt. Weaver likes Plumlee’s communication, his athleticism and most of all, his ability to help the Pistons improve in the pick-and-roll.
“Mason is a very smart player, who’s great in quick actions and great in pick-and-roll and he’s got a great voice on defense,” Weaver said. “He’s going to help the young bigs grow as well as the guards, Killian and the rest of the young perimeter players we have.
“He brings a wealth of knowledge to the game — high IQ, along with great size and a great motor. He’s a welcome addition as well.”
