The Detroit Pistons have had a fairly quiet offseason. For some teams that might be a good thing.
However for the Pistons it is not.
General manager Joe Dumars was able to trade away Ben Gordon in exchange for Corey Maggette. The move got the Pistons out from underneath the last two years of Gordon's contract. It also lines them up as players in free agency next summer with nearly $20 million in cap space available.
He also made some interesting draft picks in Andre Drummond and Khris Middleton. However there are a few players standing in their way of receiving consistent playing time.
If the Pistons want to start taking steps back to respectability, it is time to say goodbye to the old and say hello to the new. It is time to be rid of the junk and see what the young kids can do.
With Brandon Knight, Drummond and Greg Monroe they have some great potential. If Dumars is able to move a few of the guys on this list they might be able to reach that potential much sooner.
