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.

Man United desperate to sell complete flop Marouane Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini became emblematic of David Moyes era futility. As the one major 2013 summer transfer window signing post Sir Alex Ferguson, Fellaini should have absorbed all of that angst against the Manager that brought him there.
