The Cade Cunningham era of the Detroit Pistons begins two months from today.

Cunningham, the No. 1 pick in July's draft, will make his anticipated debut with the Pistons when they host longtime Central division rival Chicago Bulls on Oct. 20 (7 p.m.) at Little Caesars Arena to open the 2021-22 season. The Pistons then visit the new-look Bulls on Oct. 23.

The much anticipated matchup vs. Jalen Green and the Houston Rockets in Detroit will take place Saturday, Dec. 18 for a noon tipoff.

ANALYSIS: Hamidou Diallo returns to Pistons roster, so who is odd man out?

Green, the No. 2 pick in the draft, recently blasted the city of Detroit in a Yahoo profile, comparing it to the "G League bubble."

The Pistons visit Houston five weeks earlier on Nov. 10 for a nationally televised game.

The Pistons have 12 sets of back-to-back games.
