Meeks was brought in during the off-season to help improve the Detroit Pistons perimeter play in the backcourt following the departure of free agent Rodney Stuckey, who signed with the Indiana Pacers, and the retirement of fan-favorite Chauncey Billups. Last season Meeks shot 40% from deep while averaging 15.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per contest. For his career the 27 year old guard out of Kentucky is averaging 9.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.
