The last starting member of the Pistons “Goin’ to work” team has had his time card punched for the last time.  Wednesday night, the Pistons agreed to a three-team trade that will send Tayshaun Prince to the Memphis Grizzlies.  Austin Daye will also head to Memphis.  The Pistons will receive point guard Jose Calderon from Toronto. The marquee piece of the deal is Rudy Gay going from Memphis to Toronto.  The Grizzlies will also receive Ed Davis and a second round pick.  Per the Free Press, Prince and Daye arrived at the Conseco Fieldhouse with the team before the game, but received word during the pregame. Daye actually went through his pregame workout before hearing the news. The trade takes the final two years of Prince’s four-year contract off the books.  Jose Calderon is due a prorated share of $10.5 million the rest of the year and expires at the end of the year.  Clearing Prince’s money will save $15 million and give the Pistons will be roughly $30-35 million under the cap this summer. The deal currently leaves the Pistons with four point guards, Calderon, Brandon Knight, Will Bynum and Rodney Stuckey – all who are deserving of playing time.  It’s possible that Stuckey is the next Piston shipped out of town after being deactivated for a game over the weekend. Potential free agents this summer include: Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, Al Jefferson and Manu Ginobli. Tayshaun was a class act in Detroit doing a lot of things for area children.  His career highlight came in the 2004 playoffs (the year the Pistons beat the Lakers in the NBA Finals) when he ran down Reggie Miller from behind for one of the best plays in Detroit sports playoff history.
