Tayshaun Prince

  1. Bulls, Clippers going hard after wing players Butler, Prince

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    The Chicago Bulls need a wing player to create shots and take some scoring burden off Derrick Rose. The Los Angeles Clippers need a wing player to fill out a roster with Eric Gordon at the guard spot and Blake Griffin in the paint. Both teams have started to reach out to guys like Caron…

  2. Tuesday morning one liners: Rumor mill starting to spin

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries Nets

    If you read one thing on the new NBA CBA, this breakdown by Larry Coon of ESPN should be it. This will make you smarter. Here is a complete list of all 129 free agents that hit the market Dec. 9. It makes almost no sense for the Lakers to make a run at Kris…

  3. The Nets are very excited to make their problems worse in free agency

    Nov 27, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    Here’s the best part about all the games lost and money squandered and damage done to the game in this lockout. All the attempts to curb spending are going to end with a free agency class getting considerably more than it deserves. It has some stars in it, but the best options are either facing…

  4. What the Pistons should do when the lockout ends

    Oct 19, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT

    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. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last Season: Other teams lost more games. Other teams had worse injuries.…

  5. Tayshaun Prince was not meant to be a pitcher

    Sep 6, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    Tayshaun Prince is the kind of basketball player you want on your team — long lanky defender who can disrupt on the wing, can knock down shots and create his own looks. The man has an NBA ring and an Olympic gold medal for a reason. What he is not is a good pitcher. Prince…

  6. How about Michael Redd on the Heat? That should solve things.

    Aug 8, 2011, 12:26 AM EDT

    REDD_MICHAEL

    The trick here is to look past the actual conjectured free agency target and look to the greater schematic. But we’ll start with said conjectured free agency targets. From the Miami Herald:  If the Heat cannot sign preferred choices Shane Battier, Grant Hill or Tayshaun Prince postlockout, Miami will consider Michael Redd and Tracy McGrady,…

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

    Aug 4, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    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. Calipari to have his Dominican team play his Kentucky guys

    Jul 28, 2011, 2:05 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Kentucky v UConn

    In case you missed it Kentucky coach John Calipari is the coach of the Dominican Republic’s national basketball team this summer as it tries to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. They’re a long shot (despite having NBA players Francisco Garcia, Al Horford and Charlie Villanueva), but Calipari wants to help out of the goodness…

  9. Heat want a small forward, possibly Battier, and Eddy Curry if he loses 40 lbs.. Literally.

    Jul 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    The Miami Heat are still thinking about how to improve their team to get it over the top (one would have thought bringing in the best free agent class in history would have done it, but one would be wrong), even in a lockout. They have a number of options in mind for upgrades at…

  10. Pistons’ Daye shedding no tears over Kuester’s dismissal

    Jul 14, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Will the players from any team be as happy to have a new coach as the Detroit Pistons? There was serious infighting between the coach and the players last season, including players skipping practices and more. Pistons forward Austin Daye doesn’t exactly say “don’t let the door hit you’re a– on the way out” but…

  11. Report: Pistons want to re-sign Tayshaun Prince

    Jul 12, 2011, 10:38 AM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    When free agency opens up — eventually — Tayshaun Prince is going to have options. He will turn 31 next season and while he can bring you some solid offense (14.1 points per game on 47 percent shooting last season and he can hit the three) what really makes him valuable is his wing defense.…

  12. Pistons officially have no respect left for John Kuester

    Feb 26, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    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…

  13. Trade Deadline Rumor Roundup (and Morning One Liners)

    Feb 24, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    There are 8 million rumors out there in the naked city, too bad half of them all won’t make it…. But we round them up for you anyway. And throw in some other stuff at the end for fun. Because we’re good like that. The trade deadline is at 6 p.m. Eastern today. The Bulls…

  14. Tayshaun Prince is cool if the Pistons want to trade him

    Feb 17, 2011, 11:24 AM EDT

    Tayshuan Prince, Gerald Wallace

    Tayshaun Prince has never put on an NBA jersey that did not say Pistons across the front. Some guys you can picture in another jersey easily — try to think of one Shaq hasn’t tried on — but some guys seem rooted. Thinking of Prince in another color uniform with another name across the front…

  15. Start your planning early, the top 25 free agents of 2011

    Feb 4, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Image (1) marc-gasol-thumb-250x210-17949.jpg for post 3610

    Today, we’re not thinking about lockouts and franchise tags. Today, just for today, we’re going to pretend that the owners and players are not so stupid as have a protracted lockout during a recession killing the momentum the league is building this season. A man can dream, can’t he? Along those lines, right about now…

  16. Agent denies report Ron Artest wouldn’t mind being traded

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: In a predictable response, Ron Artest‘s agent denied that his client wants to be traded from the Lakers and told that to the Los Angeles Times Lakers blog. “Ron is not looking for a trade,” (David) Bauman said. “The frustration is there among everyone on the team. But Ron is a Laker,…

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

    Feb 2, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    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…

  18. Don’t go throwing Roddy Beaubois in Dallas trade rumors

    Jan 31, 2011, 10:58 AM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    Whenever Dallas comes up in a trade rumor the next month, the other team will be asking about Roddy Beaubois, the second-year guard. Mark Cuban told ESPNDallas don’t bother, he’s not available unless you’re sending a legitimate superstar back. The Mavs have at least had internal discussions regarding several players such as Charlotte’s Stephen Jackson,…

  19. 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…

  20. Pistons have nothing in works to trade Rip Hamilton. For now.

    Dec 1, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Detroit Pistons are a once great team awkwardly entering a rebuilding period. Right now they are an uncomfortable mix of the old and the new. They have a new coach — John Kuester — who has brought a different system, but many of the players are holdovers who fit best in the old system.…

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

    Nov 16, 2010, 12:19 PM EDT

    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…

  22. The Blazers, the Sixers, the Pistons, rebuilding and you

    Nov 14, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    iggy

    It sits there on your desk, staring at you. Just a big red button. It doesn’t implore you, it doesn’t call out to you, it’s just a button. But you can’t help but glance at it with the first few losses. Then more and more, you stare. Your mind is racing with what to do.…

  23. Pistons deny they talked trade with Hawks

    Nov 9, 2010, 5:10 PM EDT

    Image (1) pistons_logo-thumb-250x208-11727.png for post 6294

    Yesterday we reported the rumor that the Hawks and Pistons were talking about a deal that would have sent Tayshaun Prince to Atlanta for Jamaal Crawford and Jeff Teague. We also said that trade itself didn’t make a lot of sense. Now the Pistons have denied such talks, according to MLive.com. Which is smart, those…

  24. Rumor: Pistons may be shopping Tayshaun Prince to Hawks

    Nov 8, 2010, 3:23 PM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    Interesting little note — like there always seems to be — in Sekou Smith’s Hangtime blog at NBA.com. He heard the Pistons and Hawks were talking a trade: Tayshaun Prince and filler to Atlanta for Jamal Crawford and Jeff Teague. This actual trade strikes me as not a great move for either side, but there…

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

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    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…
