  1. Report: Pistons sign Louisville PG Peyton Siva

    Aug 5, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Peyton Siva, Phil Pressey

    Peyton Siva had a good NBA Summer League down in Orlando — he showed the skills that helped him lead Louisville to the national championship. He was a good floor general, not one with a great jump shot but a guy who just seemed to make plays when they were needed. Plus he can defend.…

  2. Pistons’ mascot in lightsaber fight with Andre Drummond (VIDEO)

    lightsabers

    This is actually old, it was produced back in January when the Pistons held Star Wars night… and how did I miss that the first time around? So many missed jokes. Anyway, just saw this and it made me smile, which in the middle of the NBA off-season mean it gets a post. And besides,…

  3. Today’s most expected move: Bucks GM heaps praise on Brandon Knight

    Aug 1, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Tyson Chandler, Jason Kidd

    The Bucks made their intentions clear when they went after Jeff Teague (with an offer the Hawks matched) — they were moving on from Brandon Jennings. The problem was finding a trading partner willing to take him on in a sign-and-trade deal, Jennings stock wasn’t high. Enter Joe Dumars, who has made any signing that…

  4. Billups happy to be in Detroit and playing the point again

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

    billups pistons

    The Clippers have the best point guard, the best floor general in the game in Chris Paul. For the past couple seasons they had the up-and-coming Eric Bledsoe behind him. Which meant Chauncey Billups was at the two spot. He was the good teammate and did it, but it was not his preference. Throw in…

  5. USA Basketball wants Roy Hibbert, but probably can’t have him

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:36 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    When USA Basketball held its four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week, Roy Hibbert was a noticeable omission from the roster. There’s a reason, of course, and it has nothing to do with Hibbert’s level of talent or ability to commit to the program. The fact that he’s played for another country in the past,…

  6. If they give him time, can Brandon Knight be Bucks point guard of the future?

    Jul 31, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons' Knight goes to the basket against Chicago Bulls' Noah during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    The Pistons, by their actions, showed what they thought of Brandon Knight as the point guard of the future for them. In the middle of last season they traded for Jose Calderon, moving Knight to a shooting guard role. Then this off-season they traded Knight for Brandon Jennings. The Bucks have veteran Luke Ridnour who…

  7. Brandon Jennings says he’s happy with trade to Detroit

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:53 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Dallas Mavericks

    Brandon Jennings changed agents last summer because he wanted an eight-digit deal and a move to a major market. Well, he got $8 million a year and a move t a larger market in Detroit, a team that had already added Josh Smith this summer and now with Jennings looks like a playoff team. One…

  8. Report: Bucks, Pistons agree to sign-and-trade for Brandon Jennings

    Jul 30, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    It looked like there were no suitors for Brandon Jennings — nobody made him a big free agent offer he expected (he wanted a Stephen Curry or larger deal) and now the only teams left on the market were not going to offer him one (Philadelphia, for example). But Pistons GM Joe Dumars and the…

  9. Corey Maggette, front office executive? That’s what he wants.

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:14 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    Certain guys you see going through the NBA and you think, “that guy could move into the front office seamlessly. Chauncey Billups is a guy right now that fits that mold and he could get a shot with the Pistons. Corey Maggette? He wants it to happen and has taken steps that way, according to…

  10. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  11. Behind the scenes with Chauncey Billups during his return to the Pistons (VIDEO)

    Jul 28, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Chauncey Billups returned to the Pistons in free agency, the team where he made a name for himself after winning a Finals MVP award back in 2004. Billups was traded away in the ill-fated deal that brought Allen Iverson to Detroit in 2009, but he’s back to finish his career in the place where he…

  12. Pistons might keep Chauncey Billups around after this season… in the front office

    Jul 28, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    When the Detroit Pistons brought back Chauncey Billups on a two-year contract — $2.5 million a year with a team option on the second year — there were questions about the move in some corners. But in the short term for a growing team, I like it. Billups doesn’t bring a whole lot on the…

  13. First guess at who makes Team USA for 2014 World Championships

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…

  14. Hawks sign Pero Antic

    Jul 26, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Olympiakos' Antic celebrates victory against CSKA Moscow after their Euroleague Final Four semi-final basketball game at the O2 Arena in London

    The Hawks have been re-tooling a team that earned the No. 6 seed last season and tied the Pacers heading into Game 5 of their first-round series. Paul Millsap replaces Josh Smith. Elton Brand replaces Ivan Johnson. Dennis Schroeder replaces Devin Harris. Mike Budenholzer replaces Larry Drew. Lou Williams is getting healthy. Free agents Jeff…

  15. Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis shine in USA Basketball showcase

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:08 AM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    LAS VEGAS — The White team beat the Blue team 128-106 in the USA Basketball intra-squad showcase that put a bow on a four-day mini-camp held in Las Vegas this week, but the event was about anything but this game’s final score. The powers that be were looking for mostly intangibles from players in terms…

  16. Rosters set for Thursday’s USA Basketball intra-squad showcase

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS — USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV. The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the…

  17. Pistons Monroe brushes off trade rumors, says he doesn’t want change

    Jul 24, 2013, 10:13 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    It’s going to be an interesting season in Detroit. Bringing in Josh Smith is a talent upgrade for the Pistons, a big one and an expensive one (four years, $56 million). But it’s also one that makes for some interesting matchups for new coach Mo Cheeks to deal with — Andre Drummond is the center…

  18. Report: Foot surgery could mean Orlando’s Davis to miss start of season

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    Glen Davis

    Glen Davis broke his foot back on Jan. 30 and was forced to miss the rest of the season. Then a couple weeks ago Big Baby had a second surgery to replace a screw in his foot from the first surgery. That’s a lot of foot surgeries for a guy whose job it is to…

  19. Sprained ankle to keep Taj Gibson out of Team USA mini-camp

    Jul 19, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    Chicago’s Taj Gibson’s blend of size and athleticism makes him an interesting fit for what Team USA likes to do — press on defense, create turnovers then get out and run. Play to your strengths, and with the USA that is the level and depth of athleticism. But a sprained ankle is going to keep…

  20. Jason Maxiell to sign two-year, $5 million contract with Magic

    Jul 18, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Glen Davis, Jason Maxiell, Kyle Singler, Brandon Knight

    When several veterans boycotted a Pistons shootaround a couple years ago, no more-tenured player showed up than Jason Maxiell. Maxiell has spent eight seasons with the Pistons, quietly going about his business. His weight was an issue at times after signing a four-year, $20 million extension, but he got back into shape a couple seasons…

  21. Joe Dumars calls Andre Drummond untouchable, but what about Greg Monroe?

    Jul 17, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Lawrence Frank, Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond

    Just six other players have matched the per-minute scoring, rebounding and blocking rates Andre Drummond posted last season (minimum: 400 minutes). Most of them are in the Hall of Fame. Bill Walton did it ages 22 and 24, Robert Parish at 25, Hakeem Olajuwon at 27 and 28 and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 28. Another likely…

  22. Chauncey Billups: Joe Dumars apologized to me

    Jul 17, 2013, 5:25 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Chauncey Billups and Joe Dumars had a falling out after the latter traded the former to the Nuggets in 2008. Billups wanted to retire in Detroit, and though his hometown Nuggets weren’t a completely undesirable destination, he just signed a long-term extension with the Pistons. But those ingredients alone don’t warrant bitterness. Players getting traded…

  23. Joe Dumars denies Brandon Knight-for-Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings trade talks

    Jul 16, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons talking to the Celtics about trading Brandon Knight for Rajon Rondo or the Bucks about Brandon Jennings in general – not true, according to Joe Dumars. Via Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: “Never happened, never even a conversation about Brandon,” Dumars said of the Boston Globe report over the weekend. “And…

  24. Chauncey Billups: I expect to start at point guard for Pistons

    Jul 16, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Brandon Knight has started at point guard the last two seasons for the Pistons, though he hasn’t played particularly well. Rodney Stuckey started at the position the two years prior, again struggling as a playmaker, which is why Knight replaced him. Before that, Chauncey Billups manned the position for seven seasons, doing an exceptional job,…

  25. Kawhi Leonard to skip USA Basketball mini-camp; George Hill, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added to the roster

    Jul 16, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Three

    USA Basketball will hold a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas following the conclusion of Summer League beginning on July 22, and while the roster was originally set to include Kawhi Leonard, that will no longer be the case. Leonard will miss the mini-camp “while rehabbing from a long season,” USA Basketball announced on Tuesday via…
