Reportedly, the previously retired number of the Detroit Pistons will be unretired, allowing Cade Cunningham to wear the number 2. The report came from the Instagram account @pistons_eq_man, which posted a video of the new Pistons jersey.

Cade Cunningham, drafted by the Detroit Pistons on the NBA Draft 2021, wore the number 2 during college for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The number 2 belonged to former Pistons Head Coach Chuck Daily, former two-time NBA Champion with the Bad Boys Pistons, who allowed Cade to wear his number.

After a while, the user took down the video, leaving people debating on the accuracy of this report. However, Cade Cunningham already commented on this.

"I know how much these numbers mean (in the rafters) and I know that the people that came before me, really built something special in Detroit, and those legacies live on forever.”Cade Cunningham on the honor of wearing the No. 2

The Detroit Pistons are yet to confirm the number, although some unofficial stores now sell Cade Cunningham Pistons jerseys with the number 2. While the NBA Store sells Cade Cunningham's jerseys with the number #00, waiting for the official confirmation.

Cade Cunningham is the first pick of the NBA Draft 2021 and one of the most coveted prospects. The 19-year old averaged 20.1 PPG / 6.2 RPG / 3.5 APG in his first and only season in college.

Fans hope to build around a talented young core led by Cade, who looks to be a superstar in the making.

Last year, the worst team in the NBA was the Atlanta Hawks. However, this year, they reached the Eastern Conference Finals led by Trae Young. This year, the Pistons were the worst team in the East, and with Cade Cunningham, they look to follow the example.

It's a new era in Detroit, and even Hall of Famers like Chuck Daily recognize it.
