NBA GM: 'No reason' to trade for potential free agents Monroe, Bledsoe

Given the stalemates that have gone on with Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe and Pistons forward Greg Monroe, the best option for both players would seem to be some sort of sign-and-trade.

Pistons' Monroe potential 2015 target for Celtics

When you look at the most significant deals made by Danny Ainge in shaping this storied franchise, circumstances, as much as the Celtics mystique, worked in his favor. The Seattle SuperSonics (now Oklahoma City Thunder) were in salary-dump mode in 2007, which allowed the Celtics to pull off a draft-night trade for Ray Allen. Kevin Garnett spent more than a decade in Minnesota before...

Detroit Pistons: Andre Drummond Has Realistic Expectations for Future with Team USA

Andre Drummond is one of the few NBA players who just ooze potential.

Greg Monroe maximizing limited leverage with Detroit Pistons

Greg Monroe doesn’t always take the approach that everyone expects, choosing instead to go by what feels right to him. That mindset might explain how Monroe once went against meaningless exhibition protocol two years ago, when he pulled a basketball away to prevent John Wall from attempting a self-pass, alley-oop dunk in the inconsequential final seconds of the Rising Stars Challenge...

Detroit Pistons in a place no team wants to be in

In the NBA, there are two categories you want to fall in: either you’re incredibly bad, like the Philadelphia 76ers, or you’re a perennial title contender, like the San Antonio Spurs. The Detroit Pistons fall in neither category and are stuck right in the middle. They aren’t nearly bad enough to land a top 3 pick and they don’t have nearly the talent to contend for a title...

Why Greg Monroe Should Not Be A Piston Next Season

Jesse Johnson – USA Today Sports Images Before I get into why Monroe should no longer be a Piston let me preface my argument by saying that I see a lot of potential in Greg. I like the player, I really do, however there is just no room for him to grow and develop here in Detroit. It’s been repeated over and over that we have a third wheel in our rotation.

Perspective on Brandon Jennings as a Young Point Guard

When the Pistons acquired point guard Brandon Jennings going into the 2013-2014 season, many viewed the addition as a solid, low-risk move, with considerable upside. The talented ball-handler had put his name on the map by leading the Milwaukee Bucks in scoring as a 22 year-old, and followed up that campaign by leading the Bucks to the playoffs in the 2012-2013 season, albeit with...
