LET THE KIDS PLAY
The pool of possible Pistons free agents dried up a little more this week. James Posey took a four-year offer from New Orleans, while Carlos Delfino signed with a Russian team.
According to Delfino, the Pistons were the only NBA team that made him an offer during free agency. Delfino couldn't pass up the handsome 3-year contract he was offered to play overseas.
The Pistons have their full mid-level exception and might still sign a low-level free agent, but it appears they won't be using all of it. Looking at the list of remaining free agents, they might as well stick with what they've got at most positions.
It's clear that Michael Curry loves Arron Afflalo's game and will play him more than Flip Saunders did. Amir Johnson will also get more opportunities and Cheikh Samb will get to do more than hang around the Development League. Walter Sharpe has been inconsistent in summer-league play, which was to be expected. The Pistons can't go into camp with Sharpe as their No. 2 small forward and have to get another one via a trade or free agency.
