The Pistons have signed 31-year old SG/SF Damien Wilkins to a 1-year deal. Wilkins played in 52 games (0 starts) for the Hawks last year and he averaged 13.0 minutes, 3.5 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. He has now played in 442 games (126 starts) so far in his NBA career and he is averaging 20.0 minutes, 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. This was a decent signing for the Pistons as Wilkins will help them out off the bench in 2011-12.

It’s the kind of questions I get often on Twitter: “Why don’t the Hawks pursue [insert big-name free agent]?” After I explain that they don’t have the cap space, I sometimes get the follow-up: Why don’t they trade [Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, some other player I don't like] and use that cap space?” And then I have to tell them that doesn’t work, either, because...
