Detroit Pistons head coach Monty Williams discussed the all-around skillset of Simone Fontecchio after Tuesday’s 118-110 road loss vs. the Miami Heat (22 points/4 rebounds/2 assists/1 steal/7-16 FG/5-12 3-PT/3-3 FT).

Omari Sankofa II: “Simone played the entire fourth quarter, obviously had the hot hand tonight. He’s spent a lot of time with the starters as well as coming off the bench, just how great has it been to have somebody like that who’s been able to fit any unit and of course knock down those shots?”

Williams: “I just love the way he plays the game. You talked about the offense; I thought his defense was rock solid tonight. He doesn’t back up or back away from a matchup. He’s not a guy that we have to worry about keeping in coverage, so he doesn’t guard a prime time guy, he guards everybody. And then his ability to knock down shots, attack the paint, he’s an efficient passer. He’s been a great asset to our program and somebody we believe in going forward.”
