Detroit Pistons

  1. Shockingly, the Detroit Pistons may not want a logjam on the wing

    Aug 12, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    I’m not sure Tracy McGrady fits in well with any NBA team at this point, but the Detroit Pistons are a pretty bizarre match. He may not be breaking the bank with his recently signed one-year, $1.3 million deal, but T-Mac is a fairly demanding offensive player whose level of production no longer validates his…

  2. Tracy McGrady reaches deal with Pistons

    Aug 10, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Apparently Detroit is done thinking it over and is good with it. Detroit has reached a one-year, $1.3 million deal with Tracy McGrady, according to multiple reports. He worked out for Detroit last week and told Detroit coaches he was willing to play whatever role he was offered (a contrast in tone from what he…

  3. Michael Ilitch wants own all of Detroit sports, including he Pistons

    Aug 9, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    Michael Ilitch owns the Detroit Red Wings. He owns the Detroit Tigers. And he wants to own the Detroit Pistons – and move their home base back into the city. He is already building a stadium that the Red Wings will call home (Joe Louis arena has history but old) and he wants the Pistons…

  4. Report: Pistons not close to signing McGrady, still thinking it over

    Aug 9, 2010, 1:48 AM EDT

    It’s not you, it’s me. I just need to think about it some more. That’s essentially what the Pistons have told Tracy McGrady. No decision yet, according to David Aldridge at NBA.com. Sources told him Detroit is thinking over offering a contract. The Pistons “are not about to do anything” imminently with McGrady, the source…

  5. Tracy McGrady may have signed with the Pistons…or…not

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:36 PM EDT

    Allright, so we talked earlier about how Tracy McGrady didn’t have any options and was out in the cold. No luck. No go. Iverson’d. Okay, so maybe not. Draft Express, at the NC Pro-Am today, is reporting via Twitter that McGrady has signed with the Pistons for a one-year deal. Hurray! Tracy’s journey is finally…

  6. Ben Wallace finally signs two-year deal with Pistons

    Aug 5, 2010, 8:32 AM EDT

    We knew this was coming — the two sides agreed to termsl back on July 12. But now it’s official. Ben Wallace will finish his career a Piston, signing a two-year deal with Detroit at $1.9 million per season. Wallace was one of the few positive, consistent forces in Detroit while the team around him…

  7. Pistons may sell for well below market value

    Aug 3, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Location, location, location. Oh, and timing. Golden State just sold for well above its value as estimated by Forbes, in part because the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the wealthiest areas of the nation. The Detroit Pistons are estimated to be worth $479 million and have turned more than $40 million in profit…

  8. Will Bynum returns to be scoring spark off the bench for Pistons

    Jul 28, 2010, 2:01 PM EDT

    Will Bynum may be a better pure point guard than Rodney Stuckey. That doesn’t mean he should be starting in Detroit, but it means he has value. Good passer (he had a 20 assist game against the Wizards last season), can attack the rim, is a quality spark off the bench guy. All of which…

  9. Pistons' rookie Greg Monroe to have minor foot surgery

    Jul 20, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe was not blowing anybody away at Summer League in Las Vegas — well, at least until that 27 point, 14 point performance in his final game. The good news for Pistons fans is the raw rookie got better as the week went on. But now there is a minor setback, as he is…

  10. Who is the mystery "deal to go to Vegas" team? (Not Detroit)

    Jul 16, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    UPDATE 7/16, 11:40 am: Well, you can cross the Detroit Pistons off the list (and they were the team mentioned in the original article. The Pistons released a statement on this issue: “Our ownership group has absolutely nothing to do with any proposal that would move the team to Las Vegas.” As we said, Detroit…

  11. Ben Wallace to stay in Detroit, agrees to two-year deal

    Jul 12, 2010, 12:17 AM EDT

    Ben Wallace should retire a Piston. It just seems right. Now he will. According to Associated Press Ben Wallace has agreed a two-year deal to stay with the Pistons. He will make $1.9 million each year. “This is the place I want to retire,” Wallace said in a telephone interview with the AP. Wallace had…

  12. Rasheed Wallace to retire, the world is now a little more gray

    Jun 25, 2010, 3:47 AM EDT

    The NBA just got a little less interesting. There was nobody in the league like Rasheed Wallace, and he has decided to walk away, according to David Aldridge writing for NBA.com. He battled through an injury plagued season and although he was owed nearly $13 million over the next two seasons he decided he didn’t…

  13. Piston's Charlie Villanueva arrested on domestic assault charge

    Jun 22, 2010, 10:52 PM EDT

    The disappointments just keep coming from Charlie Villanueva. He was arrested and charged related to a May 19 incident in Burlington, Ontario, a Canadian city 65 miles from Buffalo, according to an Associated Press report.  His lawyer, Owen Wigderson, says Villanueva, “denies all allegations of wrongdoing and I’m very confident that he’ll be exonerated.”  Villanueva is…

  14. Legendary Game 7s: In 1988, Worthy was worthy

    Jun 17, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    In the 1998 NBA finals, the Lakers were down 3-2 coming home and needing to take two to get the title. That sounds oddly familiar…. In Game 7, “Big Game” James Worthy lived up to his nickname with a triple double, and the Lakers got their back-to-back rings Pat Riley had promised everyone.

  15. The future isn't so bright for the Pistons

    May 26, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    The Detroit Pistons are in a heap of trouble. They may have the No. 7 pick in this year’s draft, but they’re also locked into a roster that was good enough to tie for 13th in the Eastern Conference this season. There will be some growth with some of the younger players on the roster…

  16. NBA Draft: Who's dealing? A look at tradeable picks

    May 23, 2010, 1:48 PM EDT

    A significant side effect of the lottery is that teams who don’t necessarily need or want a nigh impact player at various positions get slotted in draft positions to acquire such a player. It also means that teams see an opportunity to cash in on a high impact young player by moving the pick for…

  17. Ben Wallace mulling retirement

    May 20, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    In the middle of a disastrous Pistons season, Ben Wallace had a rebirth, his best season in a long time. Not that anybody noticed because people stopped watching Detroit early on, but he played pretty well. He played more minutes per game, led the Pistons in rebounds per game, shot at one of the highest…

  18. Detroit Pistons are officially for sale, but who wants them?

    May 20, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Ever since Bill Davidson passed away, it was assumed that his widow Karen would sell the Detroit Pistons and Palace Sports and Entertainment, the company that runs the team its arena The Palace in Auburn Hills. She said before she was exploring it, but she told the Detroit Free Press that the team is now…

  19. What is going on in Detroit?

    May 18, 2010, 9:42 AM EDT

    The Detroit Pistons were a franchise that knew what it was. Family owned and civic minded. Loyal. Putting together hard-nosed defensive teams where the sum was greater than the individual parts. This season that fell apart on the court. However, Detroit News columnist Terry Foster suggests that may be just the visible manifestation of larger…

  20. Can the Pistons make a gamechanger move by trading Rodney Stuckey?

    May 16, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Remember when Joe Dumars was considered arguably the best general manager in the league behind maybe R.C. Buford in San Antonio? Seems like a lifetime ago. After signing Charlie Villanueva and Ben Gordon last summer, effectively vaporizing their 2010 cap space and a chance at a major impact signing this July, Dumars watched the team…

  21. Trade Deadline: DEFCON Central Division

    Feb 17, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1 means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Central Division. Cleveland Cavaliers:…

  22. Here's a shocker: Kwame Brown is struggling

    Feb 9, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown had finally faded from the cruel limelight of first-round-bust scrutiny. After getting traded as the key joke piece in the Pau Gasol deal, Brown wound up in Detroit, hoping for a fresh start. And his first season was not a complete disaster. This season, though, he’s found himself benched because he’s failing to…
