The Pistons have re-signed 31-year old small forward Tayshaun Prince to a 4-year, $27 million dollar contract. Prince played in 78 games (all starts) for the Pistons last year and he averaged 32.8 minutes, 14.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. He has now played in 661 games (622 starts) in his career with the Pistons and he is averaging 33.4 minutes, 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. I’m a little surprised that the Pistons re-signed Prince, but he is still a decent player and he came back at the right price.
