Nearly four weeks into the NBA’s free-agency period, Charlie Villanueva doesn’t have a landing spot.
It’s a far cry from five seasons ago when he agreed to join the Pistons on the first day of the league’s moratorium.
Villanueva, who turns 30 next month, admits to feeling the uncertainty. But he is taking a novel approach to the situation.
He is starring in his own weekly...
It seems like fans these days are taking their obsessions with athletes a bit further than they should. After a pic of a Colin Kaepernick fan getting the QB tattooed on her back surfaced earlier today, an even more ridiculous tat made its way online via the Instagram of NBA-er Charlie Villanueva.
Villanueva shared a tattoo from a super fan who got the forwards face tatted on his...
Charlie Villanueva sat down with Sneaker Watch to talk about the San Antonio Spurs winning the NBA title over the Miami Heat. During the talk, it was brought to Charlie’s attention that Manu Ginobili beat LeBron James wearing his own signature sneakers, “LeBron 11s.” Charlie thought it was interesting Manu was wearing LeBron’s kicks and […]
“The Pistons’ other free agents — Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva — are not expected to return. Stuckey will receive interest — expect the Orlando Magic to speak with the veteran combo guard. The market for Villanueva isn’t clear.”

As the NBA continued the second round of the playoffs yesterday, the National Football League held their first round of their annual collegiate draft.
The fifteenth pick belonged to the Pittsburgh Steelers and they selected Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier with the selection.
After being drafted, many noted on social media that Shazier looks like Detroit Pistons forward Charlie...

The Pittsburgh Steelers took Ryan Shazier with the 15th pick of Thursday night’s NFL Draft first-round. Many people thought the Ohio State LB looked like current Detroit Pistons forward, Charlie Villanueva, including...
It’s easy to forget, amid all the uncertainty facing the Pistons this coming offseason, there’s one virtual certainty: Charlie Villanueva will be searching for NBA employment elsewhere come July.
He doesn’t fall into the category of one of the young players the Pistons should take a look at before the season mercifully winds down, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see Villanueva...
One of the craziest ways a fan can show enthusiasm for their favorite team or player is by tattooing their body.
A Detroit Pistons fan went all the way in showing his support for Pistons player Charlie Villanueva by having not one, but two tattoos of his favorite player. Villanueva met the two tattooed versions of himself last night:

Detroit Pistons‘ forward Charlie Villanueva rarely sees the floor.
The 29-year old has appeared in just 14 games this season, playing 8.9 minutes per game. He’s averaging 4.6 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.
The Pistons, who could not deal Villanueva’s expiring contract before Thursday’s trade deadline, are now considering a buyout.
“Anything’s possible. Right now...
Charlie Villanueva is hopeful of receiving a contract buyout from the Detroit Pistons before March 1.
Villanueva has already been paid two-thirds of his contract this season. He is in the final year of his deal.
“Anything’s possible. Right now, it is what it is,” Villanueva said. “I wish I could help this team in any way possible, but they’re going in a different direction...

Trade season is over, which means the present Pistons roster will be what you see for the rest of the regular season, right?
Not exactly, if Charlie Villanueva gets a buyout of the remaining amount of his contract, enabling him to latch onto another team where he might get more minutes. His expiring contract didn't fetch the suitors the Pistons believed it would — a league...
The NBA trade deadline is approaching fast, which means teams are starting to hammer out strategies to adding players that can help in the postseason or dumping salary to free up cap space for the summer. The Miami Heat are sort of in both categories as they want to avoid the luxury tax as much as possible but are looking to add players to their roster.
According to Ira Winderman...
The Detroit Pistons have fired Maurice Cheeks after just 50 games as head coach, but interestingly enough, they neglected to inform the players.
Teammates Brandon Jennings and Charlie Villanueva erupted in disbelief on Twitter, where they (along with the rest of the world) first heard the news.
Wait what— BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) February 09, 2014
Is it true?— Charlie...
The Detroit Pistons have fired head coach Maurice Cheeks just 50 games into his tenure, reports Yahoo Sports. Pistons general manager Joe Dumars informed Cheeks of his decision on Sunday morning, according to the report. The Pistons went 21-29 under Cheeks and are currently behind Charlotte for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff chase. I will like to thank Mo Cheeks...
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported that the Detroit Pistons have fired Maurice Cheeks as their head coach on Sunday morning, and apparently he found out even quicker than some of the Pistons’ players. Check out the reactions from Charlie Villanueva and Brandon Jennings upon hearing the news courtesy of Twitter. Not a great look for the organization.
I personally blame...
Despite revamped roster the Detroit Pistons from top to bottom have been the definition of NBA embarrassing this season, even in a horrific Eastern Conference.
Last night could’ve been the breaking point (but probably not) after the team suffered an inexcusable 104-101 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks who happen to be the worst team in the NBA.
After the game, seldom used forward Charlie...
The Milwaukee Bucks had lost nine games in a row and entered Wednesday’s matchup with the Detroit Pistons down O.J. Mayo and Larry Sanders. Of course, that didn’t stop Milwaukee from upending the Pistons, who turned a six-point halftime lead into their 25th loss of the season.
Afterward, high-paid reserve Charlie Villanueva said what we’re all thinking:
Charlie Villanueva was probably as shocked as anyone when his name was called in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s 89-85 loss to the Knicks, in which he played a part in their late comeback.
Not to say he didn’t want in, as he was probably the lone experienced player on this roster to not receive consistent playing time, but it wouldn’t have been surprising if he had resigned...
Thanks to the Instagram account of Charlie Villanueva, we learn that the creative team for the Detroit Pistons have created a rather amusing video for fans to wish them, “Happy Holidays”.
The below Instagram clip shows dancing elves with players heads superimposed over them:

Detroit Pistons’ power forward Charlie Villanueva made his first appearance of the season last night after coming off a shoulder injury, as was reported at rotoworld.com.

Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva knows his team is struggling making 3-pointers.
That is his skill-set, and he wants to help. But he said he remains two days away from practicing with the team as he recovers from a sore right shoulder. He said he has a tough time lifting his arm over his head and following through. He works out daily with trainer Arnie Kander, but is hopeful of...
Believe it or not, when the Detroit Pistons signed Charlie Villanueva, it was seen as a solid move and brought about generally positive reviews. He was a 24 year old that was nearly 7 feet tall, and was also someone who could score from anywhere on the court. The previous season, he had posted more ...The post Charlie Villanueva Will Actually Be Valuable To The Pistons This Year...
Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva testified Tuesday in federal court in Trenton N.J. that he lost $250000 in investments with former University of Connecticut basketball player Tate George according to the Trentonian.
