BIG CHANGES? MAYBE NOT
We've talked about the Pistons' cap space a lot in recent months but don't be surprised if the roster is pretty similar to this year's group.
They'll bring in another big man and a perimeter shooter but there won't be wholesale changes, unless a deal comes along where Joe Dumars would give up either Tayshaun Prince or Richard Hamilton.
You figure the point guard tandem will remain Rodney Stuckey-Will Bynum. Backups Jason Maxiell, Amir Johnson, Arron Afflalo are signed through at least next season. Kwame Brown has a player option on his contract and will probably keep the $4 million, rather than take his chances in a tight free agent market.
The team wants to resign Antonio McDyess and would probably take back Rasheed Wallace with a reasonably-priced, short-term deal.
I also think Michael Curry will get another chance to prove he can do the job. The Pistons would have won a few more games with an experienced coach but it would have been tough for anybody, given the turmoil created by Allen Iverson and the injuries they had.
