Pistons to retire Rodman’s No. 10 on April 1

AUBURN HILLS, MICH. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons plan to retire Dennis Rodman’s No. 10 during a halftime ceremony in April.

The eccentric rebounding specialist helped the Pistons win NBA titles in 1989 and 1990. He’ll be honored April 1 when the Pistons host the Chicago Bulls, a team Rodman won three championships with from 1996-98.

Detroit rookie Greg Monroe currently wears No. 10 and will be allowed to keep it.

Rodman averaged 8.8 points and 11.5 rebounds in 549 games as a Piston. He was the league’s defensive player of the year in 1990 and 1991.
