The Detroit News’s Rod Beard reports that the Pistons have found a novel way to deal with the empty red seats at Little Caesars Arena:

The seat covers were added the day after Art Van Elslander, the founder of Art Van company, died at the age of 87. Pistons officials confirmed that the covers are part of a new corporate partnership with Art Van and are not related directly to Van Elslander’s passing.
The agreement appears to be with the Pistons and not the Red Wings.
