    Rip Hamilton

    Richard Hamilton has been perfecting his sulking game in Detroit over the last year or so, and the Pistons are finally done with him. According to Perry Farrell of the Detroit Free Press, the Pistons have agreed to buy out Hamilton’s contract and make him an unrestricted free agent. Farrell makes the important distinction that…

  2. Report: Pistons will shop Richard Hamilton after lockout

    Aug 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Is this really shocking? Or even news? Since we’re left to speculating about what teams will do after the lockout, it will pass the test for now. But since the Pistons were reportedly shopping Richard Hamilton at the last trading deadline — any moves were killed by the impending sale of the team — it…

  3. Pistons start tallest back court in 24 years

    Mar 18, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Indiana Pacers

    Detroit coach John Kuester’s random lottery starting lineups got interesting Friday night. They didn’t have Richard Hamilton to choose from as he left to be with his family after the passing of his grandmother. So the starting backcourt was 6’8” Tracy McGrady at the point and 6’11” Austin Daye at the two. That’s the tallest…

  4. Report: Five Pistons players skip practice to protest coach

    Feb 25, 2011, 2:34 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    The ongoing skirmish between Pistons players and coach John Kuester just ratcheted up a notch. Or five. Five players were absent from Pistons morning shootaround Friday in Philadelphia in what a source told the Detroit News was a protest of the coach. Tracy McGrady, Tayshaun Prince, Richard Hamilton Chris Wilcox and Ben Wallace were not…

  5. Detroit deactivates Rip Hamilton

    Feb 4, 2011, 8:07 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Just when you think there isn’t any love to be lost at all between the Detroit Pistons and Rip Hamilton, news arrives in the latest tear in the once-strong relationship between franchise and player. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Detroit has formally deactivated Hamilton, removing even the slightest possibility that he’ll touch the…

  6. Report: Pistons want to move Rip Hamilton but not Tayshaun Prince

    Maybe this report is part of a planned smokescreen. Pistons fans should hope it is. Detroit is still trying to move Richard Hamilton — with no success — but does not want to deal Tayshaun Prince before the deadline, according to a tweet from Marc Stein of ESPN. The whole Hamilton thing makes sense. Of…

  7. No trade interest in Rip Hamilton, so he lives in limbo

    Jan 29, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Rip Hamilton is living in basketball limbo. He hasn’t been playing, sat down by his coach. The Pistons are trying to find someone to trade for him but Hamilton but he is owed $25 million over the next two seasons. Guaranteed. At that price nobody is interested in making a trade, reports Ken Berger at…

  8. Chauncey Billups sticks up for “Pistons royalty” Rip Hamilton

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:57 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Wednesday night, after he dispatched the Pistons players with four three pointers in the final three minutes, Chauncey Billups took aim at Detroit’s coaches and management. Wednesday made the eighth straight game Rip Hamilton has missed. Officially last night was because of the stomach flu, but if he had shown up to the arena early…

  9. Now what do Pistons do with Rip Hamilton?

    RHamilton_ejection

    For the past five games, Rip Hamilton has been watching his Detroit Pistons play and racking up DNP-CDs. He was being saved — Hamilton was the Pistons piece in the three-team Carmelo Anthony trade, a move that would have freed up some cap space for the Pistons. Then Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the rug out from…

  10. Detroit fans chant, “We want Rip”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Rip Hamilton sat again Monday, a fourth consecutive DNP-CD on the scorecard (Did Not Play, Coach’s Decision). Some Pistons fans want none of it and started chanting “We want Rip” during the team’s victory over Dallas Monday, according to the Detroit News. Admittedly it wasn’t a huge roar, but at least some fans realize that…

  11. Rip Hamilton gets dreaded DNP-CD; teammates confused

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:27 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Rip Hamilton put on his jersey as he has done before 822 other NBA games — but for the first time he could remember never got the sweats off. Pistons coach John Kuester never called Hamilton’s number. He had gone to a new starting lineup to try and bring a new energy, but Hamilton was…

  12. Rip Hamilton denies he has given up on the Detroit Pistons

    Dec 21, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Rip Hamilton

    Rip Hamilton has seen his role dramatically change in Detroit. He was once the guy run off multiple screens every possession to get him a mid-range jumper. The heart of the offense. Now he most often a decoy who plays fewer minutes every month it seems. Now Ben Gordon is starting and Hamilton is coming…

  13. Rip Hamilton ejected five minutes into Lakers/Pistons game

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:20 PM EDT

    RHamilton_ejection

    How you feel about Rip Hamilton’s ejection less than five minutes into the Lakers game against the Pistons is like a Rorschach test for how you feel about the NBA’s new “respect for the game” enforcement and use of technical fouls. At the 7:01 mark of the first quarter, Hamilton was whistled for his second…

  14. 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…
