The 1993–94 NBA season was the Pistons' 46th season in the National Basketball Association, and 37th season in the city of Detroit. During the offseason, the Pistons acquired Sean Elliott from the San Antonio Spurs, signed free agent Greg "Cadillac" Anderson and hired Don Chaney as head coach. Without Alvin Robertson, who was out with an injured back and then traded to the Denver Nuggets in November, the Pistons continued to struggle as Bill Laimbeer retired in early December after an ugly practice scuffle with Isiah Thomas. Things got worse as the team suffered a 14-game losing streak between December and January. At midseason, Olden Polynice was traded to the Sacramento Kings as the Pistons went on to lose their final 13 games of the season finishing last place in the Central Division with a 20–62 record, their worst record since 1979–80. Top draft pick Lindsey Hunter made the All-Rookie Second Team.


This season marked an end of an era as Thomas retired. Also following the season, Elliott would return to San Antonio after playing just one season with the Pistons, and Anderson signed with the Atlanta Hawks.
