Rodney Stuckey as a sixth man?

Neither Stuckey nor Pistons coach Lawrence Frank is tipping his hand, but Stuckey said he doesn't care whether he starts or not.

"I think starting is only getting your name called at the beginning of the game," Stuckey said. "I'm just trying to help my team win."

Stuckey has been recovering from a groin injury that caused him to miss four games and since coming back, Stuckey has been the first guard off the bench.

With Ben Gordon and Brandon Knight as the current backcourt, Stuckey feels he can blend with either one.
