Since it appears that the deck framing is anchored to the existing masonry wall, there no need to anchor to the piers. Keep in mind, you will need to make sure the frame is rigid against lateral movements. If you still seem nervous about letting is “float”, I suggest you anchor to the front-center pier by drilling into the top of the pier and then a matching hole into the bottom of the frame…..kinda like a pin to hold things steady in all directions.
