  11. Report: Joe Dumars, frustrated with criticism, expected to be out as Pistons’ general manager

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:07 AM EST

    Joe Dumars

    Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

  12. Josh Smith takes ‘real offense’ to Maurice Cheeks benching him

    Dec 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Josh Smith

    When Maurice Cheeks removed Josh Smith from the starting lineup for missing a practice – called at the last moment, for the day following a back-to-back, after Smith had decided to stay in Atlanta to tend to his ill father – Smith bit his tongue. But now that Cheeks benched Smith for the entire second…

  13. Maurice Cheeks intimates Charlie Villanueva is out of shape

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:36 PM EST

    Charlie Villanueva

    Charlie Villanueva’s last good season came in 2008-09. He’s due for another. Villanueva hasn’t come close to the 16.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game he averaged five years ago, but the upcoming season brings a potentially key similarity to 2008-09: it’s a contract year. After his breakout season with the Bucks, Villanueva got a…

    Oct 10, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Brandon Knight

    Brandon Jennings, now the the Pistons’ point guard, blamed the Bucks for his subpar shooting percentage. Now, Brandon Knight, the player traded for Jennings, is bringing it full circle by blaming the Pistons for his subpar assist numbers. (As you’ll see, Knight says he’s not blaming anyone. But when you start a sentence, “I’m not…

  15. Pistons’ Villanueva testified former UConn player Tate George scammed $250,000 from him

    Charlie Villanueva

    While there were a whole lot of Pistons players in Detroit on Tuesday working out to get ready for training camp, Charlie Villanueva was on a witness stand.

  16. Pistons still looking for one more backup big man

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:41 AM EST

    Joe Dumars

    Detroit has potentially one of the best front lines in the NBA — Andre Drummond at the five, Greg Monroe at the four and Josh Smith at the three. That’s a bunch of guys who can score at a high rate, once they get inside five feet from the rim. But the team could use…

  17. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EST

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

  18. NBA’s amnesty window open, here are three candidates to watch

    Jul 10, 2013, 12:55 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The NBA’s amnesty window is open — from now until July 16, teams that haven’t used their one-time amnesty provision since the lockout can wipe one contract off the official books, so long as that is a contract they signed before the lockout. Which means there are only 13 teams and 34 total players where…

  19. Raptors not keen on trading Rudy Gay for Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 3, 2013, 5:39 PM EST

    Raptors Gay prepares to throw the ball into play from the end court in the first half of their NBA game against the Celtics in Toronto

    New Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri just turned Andrea Bargnani, an underwhelming player on a terrible contract, into a first-round pick. Sure, the Raptors had to take back Marcus Camby’s bad contract and Steve Novak’s lengthy deal, but they also got a couple second-round picks for the trouble. Ujiri should be feeling pretty, pretty, pretty…
