An inside look at the Detroit Pistons and the NBA.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009


Tired of waiting for potential to turn into production, the Pistons traded Amir Johnson to Milwaukee Tuesday in what was essentially a salary dump.
The Pistons took back center Fabricio Oberto, whom the Bucks acquired earlier in the day in the Richard Jefferson deal with San Antonio.
Oberto has only $1.8 million of his $3.5 million contract guaranteed for next season. Once he's waived, the Pistons will save $1.9 million in salary.
That will get them closer to $20 million under the cap once the free agent market opens next week. Of course, the Pistons are expected to be the most aggressive team on the market, with Carlos Boozer and Ben Gordon at the top of their wish list.
