According to ESPN, the Pistons could bring in veteran Steve Blake for some insurance at point guard.

With Reggie Jackson (knee) expected to miss the first few weeks of the season, Blake could step in as the primary backup behind fill-in starter Ish Smith. Blake is obviously familiar with the system, but the 36-year-old PG still wouldn't offer any fantasy value at this point in his career.

Steve Blake is still waiting for an offer from an NBA team.

The 36-year-old remains a free agent, but has yet to receive a training camp invite. "I've never had to wait this long," Blake said. "I've always had a place to go. To be in this space, it's definitely different." Blake has been working out to keep in shape, but he won't have any fantasy value even if he does land on a roster.

Steve Blake has reportedly been working out at the Trail Blazers facilities in order to keep in shape.

Blake is hoping to hook on with an NBA team and is staying in shape in case an NBA team calls. While it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 36-year-old sign somewhere as bench depth, he won't have any fantasy value for the 2016-17 season.
Sep 15 - 9:14 AM

The Pistons have renounced their rights to Steve Blake.

While this move will help the Pistons sign Boban Marjanovic, Blake could still end up re-signing with the team. Whether he winds up with Detroit or elsewhere, Blake is no longer a fantasy option.
Jul 7 - 12:14 PM

Steve Blake said that he feels he can play one more year in the NBA, and he'd like to be back with the Pistons next season.

"I feel like I have one more year in my body and then I’ll be ready to be home with my family," Blake said. "It was great playing for [Van Gundy], and I really love playing with these guys. If they wanted me back, I’d be thrilled, but you never know in this league." While Blake would like to remain in Detroit, Van Gundy acknowledged during exit interviews that he's seeking to upgrade the backup point guard position, so the feeling may not be mutual. Blake won't be a fantasy option regardless of where he winds up.
May 4 - 10:28 AM

Steve Blake made a rare start on Wednesday to finish the Pistons' road win with 13 points, six assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

Reggie Jackson (strained abdomen) was out tonight and coach Stan Van Gundy gifted his veteran with the start ahead of Spencer Dinwiddie (12 points, five dimes in 25 minutes). The victory vs. the Cavs is great for the Pistons' team spirit but it's meaningless for fantasy purposes.
Apr 13 - 11:37 PM

Steve Blake had 10 points, seven assists and a steal in 32 minutes of Tuesday's start in a loss to the Heat.

Reggie Jackson crushed the hopes of fantasy owners with a late scratch due to an abdominal strain suffered in warmups, so Blake was forced into action. And he will likely get another start on Wednesday, as the Pistons are locked into the No. 8 seed after losing tonight's game, as well as the tie breaker with the Pacers. Along with Blake, Anthony Tolliver, Stanley Johnson, Reggie Bullock and Aron Baynes could all get heavy minutes on Wednesday, if the Pistons rest their starters in a meaningless game.

Steve Blake is expected to start Tuesday vs. the Heat, with Reggie Jackson (rest, abdominal strain) unavailable.

It'll be Blake's first start of the season for the Pistons, and both he and Spencer Dinwiddie figure to see a decent chunk of minutes sans Jackson. Blake is worth a punt in DFS, but that's about it.
Apr 12 - 7:10 PM

Steve Blake played all 16 backup point guard minutes on Friday against the Wizards on Friday with five points, one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer.

He has the inside track for the backup role. Blake obviously won't have much value while Reggie Jackson is healthy.
Feb 19 - 9:25 PM

Steve Blake had six points and one turnover in 19 minutes on Wednesday, marking his first appearance since Jan. 16.

The veteran is buried on the depth chart behind Reggie Jackson and Brandon Jennings, and he only played tonight because Jackson was sick.
Feb 11 - 12:51 AM

Steve Blake and Reggie Jackson could spend time on the floor together this season.

Should the Pistons think the team needs better ball movement, we'll likely see Blake and Jackson on the floor for short spurts together. That's about all there is to see here.

Steve Blake will be the backup point guard on opening night behind Reggie Jackson.

This means that Spencer Dinwiddie may not even be in the rotation. Blake isn't going to see many minutes while Jackson is healthy, so he can be ignored basically everywhere.

Steve Blake returned from a concussion on Friday, handing out 12 assists with two points, five rebounds and two turnovers.

He is the third point guard and won't get many minutes. Blake can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Fri, Oct 23, 2015 10:17:00 PM

Stan Van Gundy said that he hopes to get Steve Blake (concussion) around 20-24 minutes in Friday's preseason finale against the Hawks.

Blake went through a full practice on Thursday, and he's a safe bet to be ready for the regular-season opener. However, as a reserve for the Pistons, he's not going to be getting enough minutes to matter in most leagues.
