Tayshaun Prince Amused by Trade Rumors
Like clockwork, Tayshaun Prince expects the questions this time of year, when people with recorders and microphones begin to ask if he’d like to wear another team’s jersey.
Instead of getting upset when the questions come, Prince, who has been surly during his time in Detroit, displays a different side — amusement.
“The reason why I’m always positive and upbeat is because around the same time all the time, people always ask me and expect the answer to change and it’s not,” Prince said. “The first time I was on the trading block it was my sixth or seventh year, and you asked me that, my answer might be different. I was a younger player, I would’ve been like ‘trade me, you can’t come tell me?’ I didn’t know the nature of the business about rumors.”
