Detroit Pistons

  1. It’s Danny Ainge’s turn to stick up for Kevin Garnett

    Nov 5, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Just when you were hoping the whole Kevin Garnett/Charlie Villanueva/”cancer patient” controversy had run its course, Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge jumps in the fay. Ainge has a weekly radio show on WEEI in Boston and — shockingly — backed his player Garnett 100 percent, as transcribed by ESPNBoston. “There’s one thing that I know…

  2. Rodney Stuckey benched. Five winless games in, are the Pistons imploding?

    Things are not good in Detroit. No, we’re not talking about the economy (but no, that is not good). We’re talking about the Pistons… and no, not jut that they are now 0-5 on the season after a loss to Atlanta Wednesday. Although that’s not good either. We’re talking about players and the coach feuding.…

  3. Rivers defends Garnett, adds that in-game comments shouldn’t be tweeted

    Nov 3, 2010, 11:14 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Not shockingly, Doc Rivers stuck up for his star Kevin Garnett in comments made before the Celtics took on the Bucks. Last night, Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva accused Garnett of calling him a “cancer patient” during the matchup between the two. Garnett denied this. Doc basically sounded like our own Ira Winderman with his comments to…

  4. Pistons would “strongly consider” trading Rip Hamilton for Josh Smith. Ya think?

    Nov 3, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    The Detroit Pistons have not looked good. At all. They are 0-4 and sniping at each other and the coach already. Things are going to change in Detroit. One way or another (especially with the coming ownership change) — either there will be a lot more wins or a roster shakeup. Now enter all the…

  5. Coach calls 0-4 Pistons out. Prince says “right back at ya.”

    Nov 3, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Kuester_yells

    Unfortunately for the Pistons, the new season has picked up right where the old one left off — lots of injuries and losses. And now, the infighting. After the Pistons were manhandled by the Boston Celtics Wednesday, coach John Kuester called out his players for a lack of leadership, as reported by the Detroit Free…

  6. What is up with Austin Daye?

    Nov 2, 2010, 12:31 PM EDT

    Daye_dunk

    There are a lot of things not working for the Detroit Pistons right now. A lot. But Austin Daye may be the most glaring. Last season coming primarily off the bench he gave them a solid if not spectacular 13 minutes a game, but you could see the athleticism and potential. Then in the preseason…

  7. No extensions for Jeff Green, Rodney Stuckey

    Oct 29, 2010, 8:23 AM EDT

    Jgreen_dunk

    Thunder officials mean it when they say they want to keep Jeff Green as a part of this young team’s core going forward. Rodney Stuckey is the starting point guard and at the heart of the future of the Detroit Pistons. Right now, that’s not enough to get you an extension on your rookie contract.…

  8. Tracy McGrady on 15-minute time limit. Was he playing more than that anyway?

    Oct 27, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) McGrady_pistons-thumb-250x290-22089.jpg for post 6302

    Tracy McGrady has had a couple of knee surgeries and played a limited amount of basketball in the last few years. It looked it in the preseason — he played in one of the team’s eight games, and just eight minutes in that. He missed practices due to “tired legs.” So it shouldn’t be a…

  9. Allen Iverson to sign deal with Besiktas Cola Turka

    Oct 24, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Last we heard, our dear friend Allen Iverson was negotiating a potential contract with Besiktas Cola Turka, an Istanbul-based team of the Turkish Basketball League. “Penalties” embedded in the contract were the reported hang-up between Iverson and Turka but something had to give for A.I. to play basketball in Europe next season, and give it…

  10. Pistons taking their time with Tracy McGrady, to put it kindly

    Oct 13, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Minute limits on Yao Ming and Kobe Bryant garnered a lot of attention, but quietly the Pistons have done the same thing for Tracy McGrady, to even a greater extreme. When the Pistons take the floor tonight in Dallas, that will be the third consecutive game McGrady has not played, according to the Detroit Free…

  11. Antonio McDyess says this is his last season

    Oct 9, 2010, 1:35 PM EDT

    dyess

    A colleague was relating to me the locker room scene after the Piston’s 2009 dismissal by the Cavs in the first round. In a locker room of apathetic, disaffected malcontents, Antonio McDyess was devastated. His best chance at a championship down the drain. “Dyess” could barely speak to reporters, but said he wasn’t sure if…

  12. Piston's Jonas Jerebko injures Achilles, surgery will keep him out 5 to 6 months

    Oct 6, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:45 pm: The news is bad — a torn Achilles, which means surgery and 5 to 6 months of recovery, according to a tweet from the official Detroit Pistons account. That will have the second year forward back sometime after the All-Star break. 8:40 am: Jonas Jerebko got the start for the Pistons at…

  13. Detroit rookie Terrico White breaks foot, needs surgery

    Oct 6, 2010, 5:37 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:37 pm: Just a bad outcome for White — he needs to have surgery to repair his broken foot and will go under the knife on Friday, according to the official Detroit Piston twitter account. How long he will be out will be determined after the surgery. However the basic rule of “foot surgery…

  14. Winderman: Without Wade in the lineup, Heat learn nothing from first game

    Oct 5, 2010, 11:32 PM EDT

    So what did the Heat learn Tuesday night, as they unveiled their Big Three in their 105-89 exhibition victory over Detroit? What they already knew. And what Erik Spoelstra’s team knows can’t be the rule. With Dwyane Wade sidelined by a strained right hamstring that could keep him out for two weeks, the Heat had…

  15. Dwyane Wade strains hamstring, taken out of first preseason game

    Oct 5, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

    UPDATE 10:42 pm: Wade spoke to the media after the game and confirmed it is a pulled hamstring. He is going to rest and get treatment and be re-evaluated in a week. It likely will be a couple of weeks before Wade is running at full speed again and put back in any games. Wade…

  16. Tracy McGrady "jealous" of Miami's big three. He's at the head of a long line there.

    Oct 5, 2010, 4:19 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady was honest. Plenty of NBA players have said LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh had the right to do what they did in Miami, that they wish them well, but McGrady told Tim Povtak of FanHouse what is really on the minds of 90 percent of the players in the NBA. “I…

  17. Report: Mike Ilitch close to purchase of Detroit Pistons

    Oct 5, 2010, 11:25 AM EDT

    Mike Ilitch, the owner of the Detroit Red Wings and Tigers, is working on the final details to purchase the Detroit Pistons, according to the Associated Press and Crains Detroit Business Journal. Current Pistons owner Karen Davidson (who took control when her husband Bill died) had said she wanted to have the team sold by…

  18. Tracy McGrady still concerned about his knees

    Sep 29, 2010, 8:05 PM EDT

    You may want to believe, but until we see evidence on the court that Tracy McGrady is right you have to think of him as still damage goods. Tracy McGrady likes to push himself pretty hard (all the great ones do) but has had to pull back at Pistons camp and made the following comment…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 24, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Last season: 27-55 in a season where a tidal wave of injuries washed over the squad (Ben Gordon missed 20 games, Tayshaun Prince 33, Richard Hamilton 36, and the list goes on and on). That can’t happen again, right? RIGHT?! Head Coach: John Kuester who may or may not be good, we can’t judge based…

  20. Ben Gordon says he will get right by attacking the rim

    Sep 20, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

    Last season was just ugly for Ben Gordon in Detroit. He had a nagging ankle injury, which is not good for a jump shooter. Due to injuries coach John Kuester’s rotations were all over the place, consistency was out the window. Midseason Gordon had to adjust to coming off the bench again. The result was…

  21. Rodney Stuckey: "On paper, we are the best team in the League." What paper? Zig Zag?

    Sep 20, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    We’ve said it before, this few weeks around when training camps open is the time to be optimistic, to believe. You’re team can make the playoffs. You’re team will live up to potential. This is the year. The Detroit Pistons are the best team in the league on paper. Okay, that last one is over…

  22. Cavs Dan Gilbert says he would like to see Mike Illitch buy the Pistons

    Sep 20, 2010, 8:32 AM EDT

    Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is not involved in the sale of the Detroit Pistons, but he still has an opinion about it. In that way, he’s just like the rest of us. Gilbert — a Michigan State grad — told the Detroit Free Press he would like to see Mike Illitch buy the team. Illitch…

  23. Pistons looking at adding low-quality big man to roster of low-quality big men

    Sep 18, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    As the Pistons get ready for training camp in a year they hope will be considerably better than 2009-2010, Pistons.com reports that they’re looking at adding a big man for camp. “We’ve talked about maybe adding one person to training camp and we’re discussing that and we’re going to make a decision by the end…

  24. Teaching Terrico White

    Sep 7, 2010, 11:17 PM EDT

    We have yet to see Terrico White unleashed. He is this insane athlete — did you see his dunks during the informal little contest that broke out at the rookie photo shoot, where he was going 360 between the legs? — who is raw. Who didn’t impress that much during Summer League. Who could be…

  25. Not much change in Pistons sale

    Sep 6, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Team sales are not a quick thing, especially when the perceived value and actual value are different. There seems to be little change in what is going on with the Detroit Pistons sale, at least that seems the case after reading the latest update from the Detroit News. There are four groups in the running,…
