Monday was the first day NBA players could have contact with coaches and front-office officials, so there were a few more recognizable faces at the Pistons practice facility.

Ben Gordon, Will Bynum and second-round pick Vernon Macklin joined Ben Wallace and Charlie Villanueva in on-court activities.

"It's good to be back," Gordon said. "It's been a long summer."

After his workout, Gordon joked about doing "hard time" the past two years.

"I did two years (laughs) but hopefully I can get out (of jail)," said Gordon, who averaged a career-low 11.2 points and 26 minutes (fewer than any season except his rookie year) last season. "It might as well be my first, but this is my third."
