Meeks’ productivity as starter made him even more attractive to Pistons

Even if Kobe Bryant’s recovery from Achilles tendon surgery hadn’t opened the door to a broader role for Jodie Meeks, the Pistons likely would have targeted the five-year veteran shooting guard. He was one of the elite shooters to hit free agency, and shooting, after all, topped Stan Van Gundy’s off-season to-do list. But when greater playing time didn’t lead to any dips...

Detroit Pistons: What Should Be Their Starting Five?

Detroit Pistons: What Should Be Their Starting Five? By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… Yes, the Pistons still haven’t resigned Greg Monroe, but they are likely too and I will be assuming that he is a Piston next season.

Detroit Pistons head coach and President of Basketball Operations Stan Van Gundy and GM Jeff Bower have a tough decision to make. They have to decide whether to keep young and improving forward Greg Monroe or to keep talented, but troublesome, Josh Smith.

A Levelheaded Approach to the Josh Smith Situation

On Monday, a story broke that Detroit Pistons team president Stan Van Gundy reportedly told forward Josh Smith that he is unlikely to be traded “barring an unexpected turn of events.” Despite this news not really meaning anything (does any decent trade offer constitute an “unexpected turn of events”?), it seemed to generate more of a reaction from the Pistons’ fan base...

Ex-Detroit Piston Charlie Villanueva, now a free agent, looking for right situation

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...

Detroit Pistons: What’s going on with Greg Monroe?

The Detroit Pistons still haven’t gotten anywhere with restricted free agent Greg Monroe. The free agency period has been going for 24 days now, and all has been relatively quiet on the Monroe front.

Will Pistons retire Billups' No. 1?

A decade after the 2004 NBA title, the Detroit Pistons should strongly consider retiring another jersey number.

Naturally, such a failure is usually followed by overhaul to a team’s roster and front office, and that is exactly what has been going on with the Detroit Pistons this off-season. After bringing in...

Pistons teammate reportedly wants Josh Smith out of Detroit

credit: AP Before last season, the Detroit Pistons signed Josh Smith to a big deal. With Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond already on the roster, the Pistons failed to make a three big lineup work.
