Welcome back! A wild NBA day of personnel moves
The Detroit Pistons are set to part ways with Richard Hamilton. General manager Joe Dumars said Friday night the team has reached a “verbal agreement” and indicated a buyout would be forthcoming. The 33-year-old Hamilton spent the last nine seasons with the Pistons, leading them to the 2004 NBA title.
“We’ve come to a verbal agreement,” Dumars said. “Once it’s official, then I can get more detailed about why buyout instead of amnesty.”
A possible landing spot for him might be Chicago, where incumbent shooting guard Keith Bogans was not practicing as the Bulls opened training camp.
Detroit re-signed Tayshaun Prince to what was expected to be a $27 million, four-year contract. The Pistons added four players _ Jake Voskuhl, Kareem Rush, Walker Russell Jr. and Brian Hamilton _ to their training camp roster, and re-signed forward forward Jonas Jerebko. He partially ruptured his right Achilles tendon in the Pistons‘ first preseason game at Miami last year, missing the entire campaign.
Roger Mason, a key figure in the lockout talks throughout the offseason, signed with the Washington Wizards, announcing his move on Twitter. And Toronto completed a deal with center Jamaal Magloire, the first Canadian-born player to sign with the Raptors.
