The Pistons were the complementary team of the deal, a crutch for the Nets to acquire the franchise player who was almost a Piston in 2003.  Now, the Pistons are the ones who are left crippled, looking for a way to heal their ailing franchise.

Regardless of the falling out, the Pistons still have a few options they need to explore in order to get on the track to success for 2011.
