    Jerebko_Jonas

    This isn’t exactly a highlight featuring the game’s biggest stars or one of its glamor franchises, but it was a pretty basketball play nonetheless. Detroit’s Will Bynum uses the screen and then goes between two defenders to create some space. He then finds Jonas Jerebko with a nifty behind-the-back pass, and Jerebko puts the ball…

  2. Josh Smith takes ‘real offense’ to Maurice Cheeks benching him

    Dec 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    When Maurice Cheeks removed Josh Smith from the starting lineup for missing a practice – called at the last moment, for the day following a back-to-back, after Smith had decided to stay in Atlanta to tend to his ill father – Smith bit his tongue. But now that Cheeks benched Smith for the entire second…

  3. Will Bynym paid electric bill, bought Thanksgiving dinner for Chicago women’s shelter

    Nov 28, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Detroit Pistons

    Good on ya, Will Bynum. There are some women in Chicago trying to escape an abusive situation and turn their lives around who are thankful for Pistons reserve guard Will Bynum today — he helped keep the lights out and bought Thanksgiving dinner for them. The Detroit News has the details, talking about how Bynum…

  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,…

    Rasheed Wallace Pistons

    Who doesn’t love a good Rasheed Wallace story? SLAM did a Q&A with veteran Pistons guard Will Bynum, who will be back with the team when camp opens in five weeks. He talked about how smart Greg Monroe is, what a beast Andre Drummond is, and how they need to work to build chemistry with…

  8. 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.…

  9. Billups happy to be in Detroit and playing the point again

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

    billups pistons

    The Clippers have the best point guard, the best floor general in the game in Chris Paul. For the past couple seasons they had the up-and-coming Eric Bledsoe behind him. Which meant Chauncey Billups was at the two spot. He was the good teammate and did it, but it was not his preference. Throw in…

  10. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

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

David Aldridge of NBA.com: Will Bynum's deal in Detroit is for two years, $5.75 million.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) July 09, 2013 Bynum had his finest season last year. His peaks…

  12. Pistons will look at Calderon, others to bring point guard depth

    Chauncey_Billups_with_Pistons_20130704153449_320_240

    Brandon Knight is the starting point guard in Detroit and that is not likely to change next season. But one of the Pistons’ goals of the off-season was to get some depth at the position. They have a few targets, reports the Detroit News, from the realistic to bringing back some old friends. The Pistons…

  13. Report: Lakers, Knicks both interested in Will Bynum

    Jun 13, 2013, 7:36 PM EDT

    Will Bynum

    Will Bynum seemed to finally have his game grow up this season at age 30 — they guy always had the quick first step and the ability to put up points in bunches on the right night. But this season, playing behind Brandon Knight, he stopped taking as many bad shots and turning the ball…

  15. John Wall: I’m NBA’s fastest player

    Mar 28, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    John Wall, Mike Conley

    When two good players who play the same position play each other – as John Wall and Russell Westbrook did last night – they’re often asked about the other. Most players say something blandly positive about their opponent, satisfying the media with a nice sound bite. But put in that position, Wall didn’t bite. Michael…

  16. 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…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Hot hot Heat move back to top spot

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  18. Pistons’ Will Bynum suspended one game for hit on Tyler Hansbrough

    Feb 24, 2013, 8:07 PM EDT

    Will Bynum

    In the least surprising news of the day, Will Bynum of the Detroit Pistons has been suspended one game without pay for striking Tyler Hansbrough of the Indiana Pacers in the stomach, the league announced on Sunday via official release. The play occurred with 8:39 remaining in the fourth quarter, and with the Pistons trailing by…

    Will Bynum, Jerry Hendon

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Pacers’ second consecutive blowout win over the Pistons on Saturday, Will Bynum was caught on a screen from Tyler Hansbrough. Bynum either didn’t appreciate the contact, or the fact that Hansbrough continued to illegally move once the contact was made, and gave him a little shot to the…

  21. Detroit made its big trade already, don’t expect another

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Jose Calderon

    The Detroit Pistons have made a big move — Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye are out, Jose Calderon is in (part of the three team Rudy Gay trade). So as the trade deadline approaches, Pistons fans shouldn’t expect another big move, reports the Detroit Free Press. One source even said: “You have already had the…

  23. Charlie Villanueva hits the game-winning three to send Pistons past Bucks (VIDEO)

    Feb 9, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    Charlie Villanueva hit this three-pointer as the shot clock expired with about 10 seconds remaining that ended up being the game-winner in the Pistons 105-100 win over the Bucks in Milwaukee on Saturday. Villanueva was in the right place at the right time, planted at the top of the three-point arc and available when Will…

  24. Lakers hold off Pistons, have now won five of their last six

    Feb 3, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol, Jason Maxiell

    It certainly wasn’t pretty, and at times it seemed as though the Lakers were trying to give this game away more than they were trying to win it. But ultimately, L.A. held off the Pistons for a 98-97 victory, the team’s fifth win in its last six games. Dwight Howard missed his second straight game…
