  1. Sunday night NBA Grades: The Nets woes in the third quarter continue

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:54 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Brooklyn Nets

    We know you were busy Sunday night trying out the new Cinnabon vodka (why does that exist?) so we kept our eye on the NBA for you and are bringing you some grades. Brooklyn Nets in the third quarter. Brooklyn was up 7 over Detroit… then the third quarter happened. Again. Sunday the Nets shot…

  2. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  3. Sunday night NBA grades: The Pistons’ “three bigs” lineup is a mess

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:52 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday….  Pistons’ “three bigs” lineup of Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith. The Pistons are force-feeding this trio, trying to get it to work, but it remains a mess on the defensive end. Check out these numbers from Sunday night: When they were together the Lakers…

  4. Brandon Jennings expected to miss first 4 regular season games due to jaw

    Oct 24, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings’ jaw is still wired shut. You can’t really play basketball that way (no, not even Kobe) and more than that you can’t really eat and train properly to get ready for the season. Jennings went through a light workout while wearing a mask on Wednesday but is a ways away from returning, reports…

  5. Brandon Jennings to miss start of season with tooth injury

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Brandon Jennings, Maurice Cheeks

    It seems the Pistons suddenly have a bigger backcourt problem than deciding their starting shooting guard. Combo guard Rodney Stuckey is already out with a broken finger. Though Maurice Cheeks hopes Stuckey will return in time for the Oct. 30 opener against the Wizards, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, that seems…

  6. Pistons’ Stuckey breaks thumb, to have surgery Friday, out indefinitely

    Oct 10, 2013, 7:54 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey

    Just a day ago, Pistons coach Mo Cheeks was giving Chauncey Billups the start at the two and saying Rodney Stuckey would be getting the chance to steal that job. Stuckey had been the best of the three defensively, Cheeks said. Meanwhile rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was left without a chair when the music stopped. (Actually,…

  7. Chauncey Billups gets seat in Pistons shooting guard musical chairs, leaves Kentavious Caldwell-Pope standing

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said Rodney Stuckey and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were frontrunners to start at shooting guard. At least that’s how it was paraphrased in an MLive report. Either something was lost in translation, or Cheeks had a change of heart. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: After naming Chauncey Billups the starter at…

  8. Pistons seemingly narrow starting shooting guard options to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    Oct 7, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    The Pistons have essentially four starters locked: Brandon Jennings at point guard, Josh Smith at small forward, Greg Monroe at power forward and Andre Drummond at center. That leaves shooting guard, where there seemed to be several contenders. Chauncey Billups Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Kyle Singler Rodney Stuckey Now, halve that list, Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks indicates.…

  10. Taking stab at Pistons starters… Caldwell-Pope in mix?

    Aug 26, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Maurice Cheeks has one of the tougher coaching jobs in the NBA this season. While the NBA zigged toward efficiency and advanced stats, Joe Dumars zagged and built a roster with players other teams were hesitant on — Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings mainly. The Pistons got better but the question is how much better?…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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,…

  13. Will Bynum, one-time Knicks and Lakers target, re-signing with Pistons

    Jul 8, 2013, 11:29 PM EDT

    Will Bynum, Carmelo Anthony

    Will Bynum – a backup point guard the Knicks and Lakers reportedly wanted – has agreed to re-sign with the Pistons, his agent told reporters. David Aldridge of NBA.com: Will Bynum's deal in Detroit is for two years, $5.75 million. — David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) July 9, 2013 Bynum had his finest season last year. His…

  14. Raptors not keen on trading Rudy Gay for Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 3, 2013, 5:39 PM EDT

    Raptors Gay prepares to throw the ball into play from the end court in the first half of their NBA game against the Celtics in Toronto

    New Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri just turned Andrea Bargnani, an underwhelming player on a terrible contract, into a first-round pick. Sure, the Raptors had to take back Marcus Camby’s bad contract and Steve Novak’s lengthy deal, but they also got a couple second-round picks for the trouble. Ujiri should be feeling pretty, pretty, pretty…

  15. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

  16. Trey Burke ready to compete with new teammate point guards right now

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    NEW YORK – When Trey Burke committed to Michigan, the Wolverines still had Darius Morris. Though Morris’ NBA success as a Lakers second-round pick has been moderate at best, he was a star at Michigan. Morris left early for the NBA before Burke arrived in Ann Arbor, but Burke’s preparation for playing with Morris could…

  17. Pistons owner says he expects playoffs next year; quiet on Dumars, Frank

    Apr 16, 2013, 11:46 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons head coach Frank talks with Pistons players during their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Auburn Hills

    It’s not hard to see some serious potential in Detroit — rookie Andre Drummond is the real deal and paired with Greg Monroe could form the best front line in basketball in a couple years. Add in some young backcourt guys like Brandon Knight and Kyle Singler who could have a role, and you’ve got…

  18. Pistons’ Bynum could be shut down for season due to hand

    Mar 25, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Will Bynum

    Will Bynum has had his moments for the Detroit Pistons this season — as a designated scorer coming off the bench he’s averaging 9.3 points a game but has had 13 games with more than 15 points including 23 against the Trail Blazers recently. But he has been playing through pain in his hand since…

  25. Quietly Charlie Villanueva has become solid part of Pistons

    Dec 11, 2012, 1:26 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva, Stephen Curry

    For the first month of the season, Charlie Villanueva might as well have been a ghost. You saw only fleeting glimpses of him in a Pistons uniform, seemingly out of the corner of your eye. Up to Nov. 23, Villanueva had only set foot on the court three times, for a total of 20 minutes.…
