Detroit Pistons Aren't "Trying" to Trade Anyone

Tony WichowskiCorrespondent IJuly 14, 2008

I am growing tired of these internet rumors and ideas about the Pistons more or less giving up a perennial All-Star caliber player for nothing or next to it.

If teams are not willing to ante up with fair value, you can forget about it. Let's not forget that these Pistons came closer to beating Boston than the Lakers did.

The Detroit Pistons are still within striking distance of a championship, even if they do not make any changes.

Indeed, the Pistons most talented player, Rodney Stuckey, plays the same position as Chauncey Billups, their leader of these past six years and the 2004 finals MVP.

However, let's not forget that both can also play shooting guard. Together with Richard Hamilton, they will comprise the most talented three-guard rotation in the NBA.

For further reference, the Pistons do not have one player on their roster who they are going to just give away. So if you think your team is going to get Billups, Hamilton, Wallace, McDyess, or Prince for cash, scrubs or draft picks—FOR-GET-A-BOUD'IT!!!

Any move the Pistons make is to help them win a fourth championship in 2009!
