The 1999-2000 NBA season was the Pistons' 52nd season in the National Basketball Association, and 43rd season in the city of Detroit.[1] During the offseason, the Pistons re-signed free agents Terry Mills and Michael Curry. After the retirement of Joe Dumars, the Pistons were now led by Grant Hill and Jerry Stackhouse as they provided a 1-2 scoring punch, and were both selected for the 2000 NBA All-Star Game. However, as the season wounded down, Hill suffered a devastating ankle injury. Head coach Alvin Gentry was fired after a 28-30 start, and was replaced with George Irvine as the Pistons finished fourth in the Central Division with a 42-40 record. In the first round of the playoffs, they were swept by the Miami Heat in three straight games. Following the season, Hill was traded to the Orlando Magic,[2]Lindsey Hunter was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks, Christian Laettner was dealt along with Loy Vaught to the Dallas Mavericks, and Mills signed as a free agent with the Indiana Pacers.

For the season, the Pistons added maroon alternate road uniforms which lasted until 2001.
