Pistons Unlikely to Bring Back Prince?
(Tayshaun) Prince has spent nine productive years in Detroit. Not bad for a late first-round pick. With his age (31) and the presence of Jonas Jerebko (restricted free agent), Austin Daye and second-round pick (Kyle) Singler in the fold, it would seem unrealistic for the Pistons to make a full-fledged run to keep Prince.
With the new collective bargaining agreement, he’ll still have value via sign-and-trade and contenders love the intangibles Prince can bring to the table. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the California native return to the West, and there are reports out of New Jersey the Nets will pursue Prince.
It’s more than likely the Pistons have seen the last from the man who delivered the biggest block in franchise history seven years ago.
