Fresh off of a playoff berth for the first time in two seasons, the Detroit Pistons are looking to build off of that success. Which members of the Pistons could break out this season?

The Detroit Pistons are entering the 2019-20 season with momentum and the expectation of building off last season. Detroit finished the 2018-19 season with a 41-41 record and clinched the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Unfortunately, the Pistons would be swept by the Milwaukee Bucks but considering the ups and downs of the season, a new head coach in Dwane Casey and the injury bug, the team overachieved.

Entering the 2019 NBA draft the Detroit Pistons felt the pressure of making the right selection but shocked the world by drafting Sekou Doumbouya of the CSP Limoges with the 15th pick in the draft.

In addition to Doumbouya, the team traded for Deividas Sirvydis (No. 37) and Jordan Bone (No. 57).

Over the years, the Pistons have struggled to recruit effectively in free agency and have only been able to obtain big names through trade.

However, this summer the franchise signed two solid additions in former MVP Derrick Rose, who has revitalized his career, and Markieff Morris, the twin of Marcus Morris who spent two seasons in Detroit.

Detroit also signed a solid back up point-guard in Tim Frazier and Christian Wood who has displayed solid play in the G-League and could be called up during the season.

Although this roster is bogged down by stiff contracts, injury and inexperienced youth the franchise is slowly going into the right direction.

Here are three players on the Detroit Pistons who could have a breakout season:
