Pistons officially cut ties with Peyton Siva, Josh Harrellson

The Detroit Pistons were set to have 18 players on a team with only 15 roster spots so we knew something was going to have to give. And on Monday night, the team cleared room by releasing Peyton Siva and Josh Harrellson in order to make room for new signees Caron Butler and DJ Augustin. It's a harsh business, and now both players are going to have to determine what is next for...

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

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...

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...

Josh Smith leads Detroit Pistons past NBA’s best

Trying to bounce back from yet another tough loss where they blew yet another fourth quarter lead, the Detroit Pistons entered an arena where they hadn’t won since January 29, 2008. The Indiana Pacers also owned the NBA’s best record and were unbeaten at home. Piece of cake. The Pistons started off just like they did last night against the Portland Trail Blazers, by isolating...

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...

Detroit Pistons' bench scores 50 to spark road victory over Brooklyn Nets

With Rodney Stuckey and Kyle Singler available, the Detroit Pistons should have an advantage most nights when coach Maurice Cheeks goes to his bench.

Josh Harrellson didn't directly answer when the Detroit Pistons' 15th man, at least by contract status, was asked last week if he has Jan. 10, 2014 circled on his calendar. But he immediately grasped the significance of the date when all NBA contracts become guaranteed. "That's been a number, that's been a date, since I got in the league," Harrellson said...
