AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons won't be represented in the 2013 NBA All-Star Game.
But they will have two players -- Brandon Knight and Andre Drummond -- on the undercard in Houston, the Rising Stars Challenge, featuring top rookies and second-year players.
Knight and Drummond were among the 18 players chosen Wednesday for the Feb. 15 game. Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal will again serve as general managers and draft teams during TNT's pregame show Feb. 7.
Cleveland All-Star Kyrie Irving, the MVP of last year's Rising Stars Challenge, will return to the game. Rookie stars Damian Lillard of Portland and Anthony Davis of New Orleans, the No. 1 pick in the draft, also were selected.
Irving, voted an Eastern Conference reserve by the conference's head coaches, scored 34 points last year in Orlando to lead Team Chuck over Team Shaq, 146-133. Cavaliers teammates Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller also were picked.
Knight, in his second NBA season, has started every game this season and is averaging career-highs in points (14.0), rebounds (3.5) and assists (4.3).
Drummond, picked ninth overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, is averaging 7.6 rebounds and 7.6 points coming off the bench this season.
The remainder of the roster is: Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson (Golden State); Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Charlotte); Bradley Beal (Washington); Kenneth Faried (Denver); Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio); Chandler Parsons (Houston); Alexey Shved (Minnesota); and Nikola Vucevic (Orlando).

Tayshaun Prince has played his entire career with the Detroit Pistons, so it’d be natural to expect him to run out of the tunnel, just like he has since entering the league in 2002. Earlier today, reports surfaced of a three-team trade that would send Prince to the Memphis Grizzlies. One eager Prince fan apparently didn’t get the memo — fortunately the TV cameras were rolling...
The Pistons are officially rebuilding.
Wednesday's trade, which sent Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye to Memphis, did more than just close the book on the 2004 championship team. It also gives the team the salary-cap space to overhaul the roster and fix the serious mistakes made in recent years.
In the short term, the trade doesn't seem likely to make Detroit a better...
The last remaining member of the 2004 NBA champion Detroit Pistons is apparently gone.
Reports started to surface Wednesday evening -- about an hour before the Pistons' game in Indiana -- that Tayshaun Prince is heading to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a three-team trade. The Grizzlies would also get Pistons forward Austin Daye and send their star swingman, Rudy Gay, to the...
A Tayshaun Prince fan waiting in his jersey for the forward to run out of the Pistons’ tunnel gets confused when he doesn’t see his favorite player among the team. After receiving the information of the trade on his phone, the disappointed fan ditches the jersey before tip-off:
Some fans find out their favorite player has been traded on SportsCenter, when they can scream at the TV. Others find out in their office cubicle, when they have to remain silent as they read the ugly details.
And some find out at the arena, while they are hanging over the players’ entrance tunnel next to the stands, wearing their favorite player’s jersey and just waiting, waiting...
Over the years, we've posted some pretty impressive NBA tattoo but one Detroit Pistons fan might have beaten everyone with this tattoo.Check out his Charlie V. tat that could probably be confused with the real Charlie V...(Courtesy of Detroit Bad Boys)
The final remaining piece of the 2004 Championship team is gone.
Wednesday Joe Dumars become involved in a three team trade with Memphis and Toronto that centered around Rudy Gay of the Grizzlies. No the Pistons didn’t acquire Gay, which would have been awesome but they did receive point guard Jose Calderon in the deal who was originally sent to the Grizzlies.
Going to Memphis...
Tayshaun Prince was the last remaining member of the Detroit Pistons 2004 Championship team. He was also the only one in the entire starting five from that team that spent his entire career with the Piston. Prince was traded last night, along with Austin Daye, to the Memphis Grizzlies in a 3-team deal. The Pistons received Jose Calderon from the Toronto Raptors, while Rudy Gay went...
Tweet Long-time Detroit Pistons forward Tayshaun Prince, one of the last remaining players from the Pistons 2004 NBA championship roster, was dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday afternoon for Jose Calderon. Once a fan wearing a Prince jersey found out Prince wasn’t coming down the tunnel pre-game, the fan quickly ripped his jersey off. Watch: [...]
With Jose Calderon coming to Detroit, there’s a question of who will lose out. The Pistons are already pretty guard heavy, so adding another quality guard makes sense. Despite Brandon Knight‘s 7/1/4 line, he has been doing extremely well and should continue to start. Kyle Singler went 5/4/0 (with 2 blocks) has been a bit iffy, but he’s a rookie, and surely Detroit isn’t in...
The dominoes are starting to fall in the Rudy Gay deal, and it looks like the Grizzlies got away with murder. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Detroit Pistons are sending forward Tayshaun Prince to Memphis so they can acquire Jose Calderon who was apart of the Rudy Gay trade.
Not a bad lineup when you add Prince to Gasol, Randolph, Allen, and Conley...
Well there was good news and bad news depending on how you look at it for the the Pistons Wednesday night in Indianapolis.
The good news?
Joe Dumars was able to send the bloated Tayshaun Prince contract along with an under-performing Austin Daye to Memphis for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract.
The bad news… the Pistons were simply pathetic shooting from the field tonight...
The Detroit Pistons are ready to welcome one veteran after saying goodbye to another.
Guard Jose Calderon could make his Detroit debut Friday night when the struggling Pistons try for a fifth consecutive victory over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers.
Detroit (17-29) played like a distracted team Wednesday, falling 98-79 at Indiana for its second straight loss and fourth in five...
