  2. Rodney Stuckey balking at Pistons’ latest offer

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:07 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    What is Rodney Stuckey worth? Stuckey is the point guard of the future in Detroit and wanted to be paid big money. Like $10 million a year. But the Pistons have offered a five-year deal in the $40 million to $45 million range — $8 to $9 million a year. So we are at an…

  3. Monday morning one liners (filled with rumors, signings)

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Don’t be shocked if the Chicago Bulls try to get in the Dwight Howard mix, but it is a longshot. If you read on thing today it should be this: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti…

  4. Wednesday morning one liners (now with extra rumors)

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EST

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. In case you didn’t get it in your inbox, here is David Stern’s letter to fans sent out yesterday. After the lockout and months of talk of change, does the new NBA feel any different than the old…

  5. Rodney Stuckey could play in China, add to NBA’s mid-season free agent mayhem

    Oct 26, 2011, 1:53 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    Only a handful of NBA players have officially signed to play in China during the NBA lockout, but another may not be too far behind. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com (via Yahoo’s Scoop du Jour blog), Rodney Stuckey is being courted by the Guangdong Southern Tigers, and unlike many other NBA players, actually has…

  6. What the Pistons should do when the lockout ends

    Oct 19, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Detroit Pistons

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Indiana Pacers.

  7. Frank promises Pistons will get back to being defense first

    Aug 4, 2011, 2:38 PM EST

    Newly hired Detroit Pistons head coach Frank speaks with media as Pistons President Dumars listens during news conference in Auburn Hills, Michigan

    Lawrence Frank was introduced as the new coach of the Detroit Pistons Wednesday, and sat next to GM Joe Dumars is what is a silly exercise of a press conference. Silly not because of Dumars or Frank or the media, but because the league rules prohibit Frank and Dumars from even mentioning a player by…

  8. As expected, Pistons give qualifying offer to Stuckey

    Jun 17, 2011, 11:42 AM EST

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    There is about to be some serious roster shakeups in Detroit. There needs to be. But Rodney Stuckey is staying as part of the future. As he should. The Pistons extended a $3.8 million qualifying offer to Stuckey, according to the Detroit News. What that means: While Stuckey could sign that offer, what it really…

  9. Report: Pistons’ Stuckey benched Sunday for disobeying coach

    Apr 4, 2011, 9:01 AM EST

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    You would think after this season every Piston player had to be benched for insubordination for a game. Sunday was Rodney Stuckey’s turn, apparently. Pistons coach John Kuester benched Stuckey for the Pistons beat down at the hands of the Celtics Sunday as punishment for refusing to enter the game at one point Friday night,…

  10. Video: Rodney Stuckey makes a poster with Chris Bosh in it

    Mar 24, 2011, 11:08 AM EST

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    That headline kind of bothers me because nobody actually has posters anymore, do they? Wallpapers on their iPhone maybe, but not posters. But if you were still making posters, this is exactly what you would want. Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey starts his drive from the top of the lane and Chris Bosh is just a little…

  11. Pistons officially have no respect left for John Kuester

    Feb 26, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    IL: Detroit Pistons v Chicago Bulls

    Yesterday, the Pistons staged a “sleep-in protest” of John Kuester, with five pistons skipping practice.   Kuester responded by benching those players for last night’s game against the Sixers, and wound up playing just six players. In a shocker, the Pistons lost by a healthy margin. But that wasn’t the surprising part. Kuester was ejected…

  12. Pistons want to bring Tracy McGrady back for another season

    Feb 17, 2011, 1:52 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time. And I’m man enough to admit it. I was wrong about Tracy McGrady. I thought time had passed him by, his knees were Jello and teams should treat him like he had leprosy. But he’s turned out to be a solid, smart veteran who knows how to run a team. His knees may…

  13. Pistons without Stuckey, Wallace and Hamilton Friday against Heat

    Jan 28, 2011, 12:48 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    We knew Rip Hamilton was not going to play Friday night for the Pistons against the Heat. He’s officially out with the stomach flu but even if he were officially at the arena and ready to play he’d be benched by coach John Kuester because… we don’t know. But he would be. However it’s much…

  14. Rodney Stuckey leaves game with shoulder injury, X-rays negative

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    In the first quarter Wednesday Rodney Stuckey tried to fight around a Carmelo Anthony pick and injured his shoulder to the point he had to leave the game. Stuckey will not return to the Nuggets game, however the X-rays were negative. Which is good news. But watching him as he left the game whatever he…

  15. Dysfunction in Detroit: Tayshaun Prince and coach John Kuester have words. Again.

    Nov 16, 2010, 12:19 PM EST

    Kuester_huddle

    If the NBA has a soap opera this season, it may be set in Detroit. Monday night came the most public of this season’s spectacles — Tayshaun Prince and coach John Kuester had words on the bench. Very public, very heated words. Kuester had pulled Prince in the second quarter for feeling he had not…

  16. John Kuester’s safe! Yeah, we’re as surprised as you.

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    kuesterthumbsup

    So the Pistons won last night, which is a big deal for them, since it’s their first. I remember my first time. Wait, that’s not what we’re talking about. Anyway, they got off the early season snide against the Bobcats (of course) last night. The problem is they’re still 1 and 5 and have had…

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

    Nov 4, 2010, 8:36 AM EST

    TPrince_sad

    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.…

  18. No extensions for Jeff Green, Rodney Stuckey

    Oct 29, 2010, 8:23 AM EST

    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.…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 24, 2010, 12:11 PM EST

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

    Sep 20, 2010, 1:39 PM EST

    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…

  21. Rodney Stuckey counting on better fitness, jumper to help spark him, Pistons

    Sep 1, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    Last season there were points that Rodney Stuckey got the ball on an outlet and wanted to push the pace, but his body wouldn’t let him. There are levels of conditioning, even among professional athletes. This summer, Rodney Stuckey has been in the gym working to take his to the next level so that when…

  22. Will Bynum doesn't want to just be a spark off the bench, he wants to start

    Aug 14, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    You think the backcourt for the Detroit Pistons at the start of the season is set: Rodney Stuckey at the point, Rip Hamilton at the two, Tayshaun Prince at the three. Will Bynum would like his name in the conversation, thank you very much, as he told the Detroit Free Press. “I’m looking forward to…

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

    May 16, 2010, 10:11 AM EST

    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…

  24. Pistons should protect Stuckey at all costs

    Mar 10, 2010, 9:12 PM EST

    UPDATE 9:12 pm: Stuckey has been cleared to practice by team doctors. However, no date has been set yet for when he will return to game action 11:54 am: Nobody quite knows what’s ailing Rodney Stuckey physically, and that’s a frightening thing. Professional basketball players, like professional athletes of any kind, put their bodies through…
