After Lanier's selection, the Pistons' prospects steadily improved. The Pistons put up a team record 52 wins during the 1973-4 season, netting Detroit a spot in the playoffs. Lanier played with the Pistons for nine years prior to his transfer to the Milwaukee Bucks, where he would remain until retirement.
