A contingent of Detroit Pistons will travel to Las Vegas on Aug. 31, but it won’t be fun and games.

Members of the team are going to train with some UFC trainers. It’s a team bonding event put together by the players with Reggie Jackson and Andre Drummond being the leaders.

Two weeks ago, some UFC fighters came to the team’s practice facility to cross train with the Pistons. Now the players are returning the favor, but will be working with the UFC trainers and coaches.

The players will be in Vegas for about a week.

Spencer Dinwiddie didn’t know who all would be attending, but he’ll be one of them.

“Training camp basically starts for us on the 29th,” said Dinwiddie, who is fighting for a backup role on the team as a point guard.

“It’s an exciting time right now. The Vegas thing is a team bonding thing. It looks like we’ll be doing two-a-days. I think the main thing with that is going to be group cohesion. Obviously they aren't going to let us fight MMA fighters, you can get hurt doing that.

“I honestly don’t know where the idea came from. It might have been our equipment manager or strength coach and Stan (Van Gundy) may have had something to do with it.’’
