The Pistons have re-signed 24-year old power forward Jonas Jerebko to a 4-year, $16 million dollar deal. Jerebko missed all of last season due to a ruptured Achilles. He played in 80 games (73 starts) as a rookie back in 2009-10 for the Pistons in which he averaged 27.9 minutes, 9.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 1.0 steal per game. He will likely bump Charlie Villanueva back to the bench, as long as he can stay healthy.
BEST OF MAXIM
NBA teams can't officially announce roster moves until Friday morning.
Apparently, the Detroit Pistons are going to start with a stunner.
In a move that seems to make little sense for either side, the team is expected to announce that they have re-signed free-agent forward Tayshaun Prince to a four-year, 27 million contract.
Prince had one of the worst seasons of his career...
The Detroit Pistons have decided to part ways with Richard Hamilton.
A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Friday that terms of a buyout were still being negotiated. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an announcement.
The 33-year-old Hamilton spent the last nine seasons with the Pistons, leading them to the 2004...
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Detroit Pistons plan to waive longtime guard, Rip Hamilton and his $20 million remaining contract, effectively buying him out and making him available to sign with other teams.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Rip Hamilton will be bought out by the Pistons: “Source: Rip Hamilton has been waived by the Pistons. Will be bought out. Not an amnesty transaction.”
Yikes. Joe Dumars and the Detroit Pistons will reportedly bring back Tayshaun Prince for a boatload of money. Per Yahoo! Sports: “Tayshaun Prince will sign a four year, $27 million dollar deal to stay with Detroit, league sources tell Y! Sports.”
Chris Wilcox has signed a one-year deal with the Celtics for the veteran minimum.
When I first heard the news, “Detroit Pistons to sign Tayshaun Prince for 4 years at 27 million dollars” I was stunned. Wasn’t this supposed to be the start of something new? Didn’t we suffer enough during the last few years of doing nothing as far as personnel was concerned? Wasn’t this the year Joe Dumars was going to reward us because he wasn’t handcuffed by...
With free agents Tayshaun Prince and Jonas Jerebko in the fold, rookies Brandon Knight and Vernon Macklin signed and Rip Hamilton waived, Pistons president Joe Dumars can turn his attention to restricted free agent Rodney Stuckey. The process isn't going smoothly, and there's a chance a team could present an offer sheet, which the Pistons would have three days to match.
During the NBA lockout, Tayshaun Prince had a lot of time to think about being a free agent. On one hand, he could leave the team that drafted him out of Kentucky in 2002. He could go to a team with a shot at an NBA title. But he decided to return to the Pistons, signing a four-year, $27-million deal on the first day of training camp Friday.
I am personally astonished by this…
“Tayshaun Prince will sign a four-year, $27 million-plus contract to stay with the Detroit Pistons, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
For the Pistons, convincing Prince to re-sign was the franchise’s No. 1 priority, and something of a coup considering the tumultuous past two seasons for him and the longstanding core of veteran players. With...
Tayshaun Prince never assumed his time with the Pistons was finished, and when Lawrence Frank joined Joe Dumars this week in making it clear he wanted him back, Prince surveyed his options and chose to remain a Piston, Keith Langlois writes for True Blue Pistons.
The Detroit Pistons signed swingman Damien Wilkins on Saturday.
