Should expectations be higher for Detroit?

To review the Detroit Pistons' busy offseason: Hiring a new highly regarded head coach in Stan Van Gundy. Signing two experienced veterans in Caron Butler and D.J. Augustin. Getting continued development from young up-and-comers like Andre Drummond and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Drafting a promising combo guard Spencer Dinwiddie in the second round, and locking him up to a multi-year deal.

There's a lot to like about these developments, but should expectations be significantly higher for a team that finished with a 29-53 record last season?
