Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Moves to bench
Fontecchio will move to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Bulls.
The Pistons are starting Isaiah Stewart in the frontcourt alongside Jalen Duren, while Ausar Thompson will start at small forward. Fontecchio has been excellent since arriving in Detroit and is likely to play a key role off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Scores 17 points in loss
Fontecchio contributed 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Saturday's 112-109 loss to Orlando.
Even though Fontecchio has not been able to replace Bojan Bogdanovic's contributions, there's no question he's made his presence felt while immediately grabbing a starting role. He has scored in double figures in four of his last five appearances since joining Detroit via trade, averaging 15.4 points and shooting 38.7 percent from the field from three-point range in that stretch. It's a small sample size, but it shows he's worth monitoring in most formats, particularly if he remains in a starting role. However, Isaiah Stewart's (ankle/suspension) impending return could result in a reduced role for Fontecchio.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Leads offensively as top scorer
Fontecchio contributed 18 points (7-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist and two steals over 21 minutes during Wednesday's 116-100 loss to the Suns.
Fontecchio led all Pistons players in scoring while connecting on a pair of threes as well as a team-high-tying field goal total en route to ending two points short of the 20-point mark in a losing effort. Fontecchio has recorded at least 18 points in six games this season, including in two of his last three outings.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Gets starting nod
Fontecchio is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Lakers.
Fontecchio will replace Mike Muscala in the starting lineup Tuesday. Fontecchio scored 20 points in 29 minutes coming off the bench in his Detroit debut but started 34 games for the Jazz earlier this season.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Posts 20 points in debut
Fontecchio closed Saturday's 112-106 loss to the Clippers with 20 points (8-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 32 minutes.
Fontecchio made his debut after being traded from the Jazz to the Pistons one day before the trade deadline, and the small forward impressed with his instincts and shooting ability. It wouldn't be shocking if he moves into a starting role as the season progresses based on how good he looked in his debut, as his above-average shooting and floor spacing provides Detroit with another threat on offense that's similar to Bojan Bogdanovic, who was traded to the Knicks....

Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Available for Saturday
Fontecchio (trade pending) will be available for Saturday's game against the Clippers.
Fontecchio will be available for the first time since his trade from Utah. The Pistons are in desperate need of shooters, so there's a good chance that Fontecchio carves out a nice role for himself.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Out for next two games
Fontecchio (trade pending) won't play for the Pistons in Wednesday's game aginst the Kings or Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Fontecchio's move to the Pistons won't become official until Thursday, and the 28-year-old will have to wait at least two games before making his first appearance with his new team. Once he's able to suit up for Detroit, he'll compete for playing time with Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) and Ausar Thompson.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Won't debut Wednesday
Fontecchio won't play Wednesday against Sacramento since his trade to the Pistons won't become official until Thursday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.
Kevin Knox has a trade restriction until Thursday since he didn't sign with the Pistons until Nov. 8, so Fontecchio will have to wait at least a day before making his Pistons debut. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available Thursday against the Trail Blazers.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Sent to Detroit
Fontecchio was traded from the Jazz to the Pistons on Wednesday in exchange for Kevin Knox a 2024 second-round pick, and the draft rights to Gabriele Procida, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Fontecchio had started in 34 of Utah's last 37 games, but he had somewhat inconsistent results, averaging 10.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.7 minutes per game. He'll be a restricted free agent following the 2023-24 season, and it's unclear whether the Pistons will be able to retain him beyond this year. It's also unclear whether Fontecchio will be able to claim a starting role in Detroit, as the team also has Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) and Ausar Thompson.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Drains four treys Tuesday
Fontecchio racked up 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 118-103 loss to the Knicks.
Fontecchio was sharp from beyond the arc, and while he didn't do much else in other categories, he at least scored in double digits for the fifth time across Utah's last seven games. Firmly entrenched as a starter, Fontecchio is averaging 9.9 points and 4.6 rebounds while shooting 39.1 percent from deep over his last 17 appearances (all starts).... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Just five points in win
Fontecchio finished with five points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Saturday's 134-122 victory over the Hornets.
Fontecchio ended with single digits for the first time in the past five games, adding very little in terms of supporting stats. Despite averaging just 10.3 points per game over the past two weeks, Fontecchio has managed to flirt with top-100 value. He is by no means a must-roster player, but he's doing enough to be considered, especially if points are not a priority.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Solid in loss
Fontecchio racked up 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), seven rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes during Saturday's 127-126 overtime loss to the Rockets.
Making his 12th consecutive start, Fontecchio matched his most playing time since Jan. 8. His scoring has been inconsistent of late, but he profiles as the only true wing on Utah's roster with the ability to defend multiple positions, which should maintain his healthy rotation role moving forward....

Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Muted scoring impact
Fontecchio contributed five points (2-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 32 minutes during Monday's 132-116 win over the Bucks.
Fontecchio continues to start and log his normal workload, but he finds himself in a 4-for-16 mini-slump from beyond the arc over Utah's last three games. The Italian has blossomed into a relevant two-way contributor in his second season with the Jazz, however, making him a slight bounce-back candidate moving forward. Across 20 games as a starter this season, Fontecchio is averaging 11.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists while hitting 36.7 percent of his threes.... See More ... See Less
