NEW YORK - JUNE 25:  NBA Commissioner David Stern poses for a photograph with the fifteenth overall draft pick by the Detroit Pistons,  Austin Daye during the 2009 NBA Draft at the Wamu Theatre at Madison Square Garden June 25, 2009 in New York City.

A few things appear certain for the Pistons.

  1. Rodney Stuckey is the point guard of the future.
  2. The Pistons are not happy with their depth, especially in the front court.

Some things that aren’t so certain.

  1. Rip Hamilton’s future with the Pistons.
  2. Tayshaun Prince’s future with the Pistons.
  3. The free agent and trade targets of the Pistons.

During an interview held between the first and second round picks in the 2009 NBA Draft, Joe Dumars mentioned how he liked his back court players. Will Bynum, Rodney Stuckey, and Aaron Afflalo were mentioned, Richard Hamilton was not. With the rumors about Ben Gordon and this slip (which could mean nothing in all fairness) it still seems likely Detroit would look to move Hamilton.

With Gordon here and Hamilton moved, it is highly likely the Piston would look to add another front court player with a trade. To continue this article click here.
