The 2000–01 Detroit Pistons season was the 60th season of the franchise, the 53rd in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the 44th in the Detroit area.[1] Just a little over a year after his final game, Pistons legend Joe Dumars was put in charge of rebuilding. During the offseason, the Pistons acquired Ben Wallace and Chucky Atkins from the Orlando Magic, and Cedric Ceballos from the Dallas Mavericks, but traded him to the Miami Heat later on during the season, while acquiring Corliss Williamson in a midseason trade with the Toronto Raptors. One key piece to the team's future appeared to be Jerry Stackhouse, who had a stellar season averaging 29.8 points per game while being selected for the 2001 NBA All-Star Game. However, the Pistons struggled finishing fifth in the Central Division with a 32–50 record.
