Josh Harrellson Likely Waived by Detroit Pistons

The 2014 NBA free agency period has not been kind to former Kentucky Wildcats. Not long after the Orlando Magic waived guard Doron Lamb, the New Orleans Pelicans announced that Darius Miller would not have his contract tendered, making him a free agent. Those two were key in UK’s Final Four run in 2011, as was center Josh Harrellson. He’s become the latest casualty from that...

Detroit Pistons Free Agency: Aaron Gray Reportedly Agrees to Multi-Year Deal

The Detroit Pistons’ backup center for parts of last season prior to a knee injury, Harrellson almost certainly will be released in the coming days on the heels of a report from Yahoo’s Marc Stein that the Pistons have agreed to a multi-year deal with journeyman Aaron Gray. Gray, a seven-footer who was a Round 2 pick back in 2007, averaged...

New front office trying to get Detroit Pistons back on track

This might sound familiar; the Detroit Pistons use their plentiful cap space to sign a pair of big name free agents but fail to put together on the floor. It happened in 2009 and again last summer. Detroit brought in Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings but still failed to make the playoffs in the extremely weak Eastern Conference. The Pistons should have a good amount of flexibility...

So of course, you just had to know that somewhere in the NBA, alums of the two schools had some kind of wager. It turns out that Detroit Pistons teammates Peyton Siva (Louisville) and Josh Harrellson (Kentucky) put their school pride on the line...

Pistons’ Josh Harrellson gets massive grizzly bear tattoo (PIC)

Pistons big man Josh Harrellson Instagram’d a picture of his HUMONGOUS grizzly bear tattoo Thursday morning. Why a grizzly bear?  We have no idea.  Was he hoping to get dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies at the NBA trade deadline Thursday?  Possibly.  Is he honoring the nearby Oakland University Golden Grizzlies?  Doubtful.  Does he enjoy staring big scary-looking bears when...

Detroit Pistons: Frontcourt starting to evolve

Just when you’re ready to give up on the Detroit Pistons’ experimental frontline, they go out and totally redeem themselves.

Detroit Pistons: Who is Josh Harrellson?

Josh Harrellson (photo credit: Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images) At first glance, Josh Harrellson just looks like one of those big-bruising, nonathletic, and inexpensive centers to play the remaining minutes of blowout games. However, we should not judge this book by it’s cover. After one year at Southwestern Illinois Junior College, Harrellson transferred to the University of Kentucky...

Detroit Pistons 92, Chicago Bulls 75: Highlights

Don’t look now (and judging by the team’s attendance, you’re not) but the Detroit Pistons are back to .500. The Pistons improved to 10-10 — good for fifth place in the miserable Eastern Conference — with a 92-75 win over the Bulls, revenge for Chicago’s recent victory at Detroit. Brandon Jennings led the way for the Pistons with 33 points; he was the only starter to hit...

Current home stretch is huge for Detroit Pistons

Isn’t it funny to think that the Detroit Pistons would be fourth in the Eastern Conference right now if they snagged just one win in their back-to-back with the Atlanta Hawks? In a so far strange start to the NBA season, the Pistons have benefited from lackluster and demoralizing starts by other Eastern Conference foes. Brooklyn and New York are an astoundingly futile 7-20 combined...
