An inside look at the Detroit Pistons and the NBA.

Thursday, June 25, 2009


Lots of trade talks are going on around them but it looks like the Pistons are staying put with the No. 15 overall pick. Sacramento apparently tried to trade up and give the Pistons two lower picks, but that made no sense for Detroit because it has three second-rounders and didn't want five picks bunched together.
Watch carefully what the Bulls do in this draft. If they pick a shooting guard - they are reportedly interested in Terrence Williams - that may be a signal they're not going to get into a bidding war with the Pistons over Ben Gordon.
As for Carlos Boozer, the Pistons' brass is a little leery of his price range. They'd be interested if he wanted a starting salary of $10 to $12 million with normal yearly raises. If he wants $15 million, he'll price himself out of the market.
There's also a lot of Amare Stoudemire rumors flying around and you've got to believe the Pistons would be interested, but only if Stoudemire agreed to an extension. Same goes for Chris Bosh, who has no intention of returning to Toronto when he becomes a free agent after next season.
