The Detroit Pistons are bringing a free agent from their Orlando Pro Summer League team to training camp. The Pistons are signing Kentucky power forward Derek Willis to a one-year deal, with the intent of making him one of their affiliate players at their Gatorade League affiliate in Grand Rapids. That means Willis will be brought to training camp, which beings Sept. 26. Players designated affiliate players are assigned to that team’s affiliate - if they choose to sign a G League deal.
The Detroit Lions will kick off training camp July 29. Here are the 10 players who have the most to prove this season:No. 10: WR Kenny Golladay. The only reason the third-round pick from Toledo finds himself on this list is because he put himself here by virtue of his excellent minicamp. Golladay wowed everyone with his size, speed and Velcro hands. He earned universal praise and he’s practically a lock to be the third receiver.
The first update fans will notice at Ford Field this season is the massive and ubiquitous video boards that take up 26,500 square feet of LED display space as part of a $100-million renovation. But amid all the dazzling new updates and upgrades fans can expect to see, there’s one major change that is significant precisely because fans won’t see it: the playoff-appearance banners.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
