AROUND THE WEB
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 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:
After what felt like a super long road trip out West, the Indiana Pacers finally returned to Banker's Life Fieldhouse to pound the shorthanded (lost Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye in a trade) Detroit Pistons 98-79, snapping a 3-game losing streak to begin a long home-stretch with just a single road game until Feb. 23.
Not much to say except it was good to see the Pacers...
INDIANAPOLIS -- All it took was a return trip home for the Indiana Pacers to get back on track. The Pacers ended their three-game losing with a comfortable 98-79 victory over the Detroit Pistons at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday. The Pacers have won 12 straight games at home. "Proud of our guys for coming off the West Coast trip, a tough trip and taking care of business...
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...
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: [...]
The Indiana Pacers have relied on stingy defense all season long. That defense has recently let them down, however, as they've matched a season worst with three straight losses.
The Pacers might be poised to end that skid Wednesday night as they host a Detroit Pistons team that has lost eight straight in Indianapolis.
Indiana (26-19) is mired in its longest losing streak since...
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...
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...
