Several Pistons miss pregame shootaround
Question of the Day
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Several Detroit Pistons missed at least part of the team’s shootaround before Friday night’s game at Philadelphia, the latest incident on what has been a difficult season for the proud franchise.
Detroit entered the night 21-38 and is almost certainly headed to its third straight losing season. There have been signs of disharmony almost from the beginning. Coach John Kuester benched Stuckey barely a week into the season, although that was only temporary.
The team was unable to trade Hamilton before Thursday’s deadline. He’s guaranteed $20 million over the next two seasons.
Wallace missed eight games in January. He’s battled ankle problems and also left the team to tend to a family matter.
Kuester has juggled the lineup quite a bit this season, trying to find combinations that might help propel the Pistons to a playoff spot, but so far it’s been no use. McGrady has been a bright spot, staying healthy and settling in as a point guard, and rookie big man Greg Monroe is showing promise _ but Detroit has clearly fallen a long way since Hamilton, Prince and Wallace led the Pistons to the 2004 NBA title.
Owner Karen Davidson has been trying to sell the team, and that turned into a drawn-out saga after she said she hoped it would be done by the start of the season. On Feb. 11, Davidson confirmed she and investor Tom Gores had a two-week “exclusivity” period for negotiations.
On Friday _ exactly two weeks later _ there was no update from the owner.
