  2. Winderman: Juwan Howard, other name players could fade away from NBA

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:05 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The fadeaway long has been an NBA fact of life. While the stars hold press conferences to announce enough is enough, their fame to keep them in the spotlight (and possibly part of broadcast teams) long after their playing days — something we soon might get from Ben Wallace — for the majority of those…

  3. Pistons’ Knight says he has gotten a lot better this summer

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:08 PM EST

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

    Right now, Brandon Knight is taking it slow trying to rest and heal up a case of plantar fasciitis, the foot condition that makes it painful to run. It’s mild and he should be ready to go by training camp. And that is when Knight plans to show what he did with his summer vacation.…

  4. Things to watch: Brandon Knight battling plantar fasciitis

    Sep 6, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

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

    It’s mild. It’s summer when he can rest it and get it right. It’s not a big deal, it’s just something to watch. But this report on Pistons point guard Brandon Knight caught my eye. From Keith Langlois of the True Blue blog at Pistons.com. Brandon Knight suffered mild case of plantar fasciitis at Grgurich’s…

  6. Piston’s Jerebko tweaks ankle playing for Sweden; will be fine

    Jerebko_Jonas

    If you listened to every general manager and owner interviewed after the Olympics about how their star players did, the quotes pretty much all went “it’s great that they won and it’s even better that they didn’t get injured.” Well, the Clippers didn’t say that, what with Blake Griffin (knee) and Chris Paul (thumb) needing…

  7. New Orleans native Greg Monroe watching hurricane Isaac

    Aug 28, 2012, 4:20 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Pistons center Greg Monroe was a high school sophomore in New Orleans when hurricane Katrina hit and decimated that city. His family decided the night before to get out of town and left with a full car at 3 a.m. headed to Houston. He and his family survived, but it forever changed his life. Like…

  8. Greg Monroe calls Andre Drummond “a beast on the boards”

    Aug 27, 2012, 12:05 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    Ah, the six weeks before training camps open is when optimism reigns. Every rookie looks like the rookie of the year, every injury is healing well, every player has worked on his game and will come back to camp playing his best. With that in mind, we bring you this note from Pistons.com (via the…

  9. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

    It’s “Thunderstruck” week!! This coming weekend Kevin Durant’s movie “Thunderstruck” hits the theaters nationwide. So rather than spending this week recovering from his gold medal trip to London and getting in a little run with teammates, he is going to be walking the red carpet and doing the movie promotion thing.

    There has been a handful of small roster moves in the last 48 hours the kind of things you want to know if it’s you’re team. Not difference making moves, but moves. We thought we should bring them to you in bullet form. • The Phoenix Suns have signed a deal with Jermaine O’Neal for…

    Ben Wallace thinks he’s got one more year in him. The Pistons big man has said he would come back and play for the Detroit or retire and now he wants to come back — except the Detroit roster is full, reports the Detroit News. That really leaves Wallace — the former Defensive Player of…

  18. Ben Wallace “50/50” on returning to Pistons or retiring

    Jul 21, 2012, 9:03 PM EST

    Ben Wallace, Jordan Williams

    The Pistons are going young and they are hoping that just drafted Andre Drummond can live up to the hype and be at the heart of that movement. But should the Pistons bring back Ben Wallace for an 18th season as a mentor? Does Wallace want to do that, or does he want to retire…

    Shane Battier, Ronny turiaf, Greg Monroe

    Pistons big man Greg Monroe is in Orlando right now, working out against recent Detroit draft pick Andre Drummond in between games of the Orlando Summer League. Where he is not is Las Vegas as a member of the USA Select team that goes against the United States Olympic squad in practice. He’s pretty ticked…

  20. Ben Gordon fails to report, will not play for Great Britain in Olympics

    Ben Gordon

    Ben Gordon will not be part of host Great Britain’s basketball team at the Olympics. After a draft night trade from the Pistons to the Bobcats, the London-born Gordon told British coach Chris Spice he couldn’t commit to them. Spice, understandably, told the Associated Press he was not thrilled. Spice says “It’s really disappointing as…

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:21 PM EST

    John Henson speaks during a news conference for prospective NBA draft picks in New York

    I’m higher on North Carolina’s shot-blocking forward John Henson than most, or at least most not wearing powder blue. And if he falls to No. 9, which is highly likely, look for the Detroit Pistons to grab him, reports the Detroit Free Press. Henson is the likely pick. The Pistons like his makeup and, despite…

    Detroit just saved a lot of money and Charlotte just got someone who can at least put the ball in the hole.

    Well, Anthony Davis is No.1 and Thomas Robinson will go in the top five. That’s a pretty good start for the bigs in the 2012 NBA draft. After that, things get really interesting.
