  • Report: Clippers may have offered trade of DeAndre Jordan for Andre Drummond

    DETROIT - Could the Detroit Pistons be close to moving one of their main centerpieces? ESPN's Brian Windhorst told The Jump on Wednesday that the Los Angeles Clippers have spoken to the Detroit Pistons about a DeAndre Jordan - Andre Drummond swap. Until now, the Pistons have been quiet through the last week of trade frenzy in the NBA, leading up to the draft on Thursday night. Windhorst mentions that the interest comes from the fact that Jordan is better defensively and Drummond is better offensively.  DeAndre Jordan averaged 12 points and nearly 14 rebounds per game last year, shooting 71 percent from the field.

  • J.R. Smith posts "Goood Bye CAVS!!" on Facebook, deletes it, claims he was hacked

    With the NBA draft about 24 hours away and the NBA offseason already in full frenzy with trades and speculation, J.R. Smith joined the fun – if only for a few minutes – with what he later claimed was a hacked Facebook post. The loss put the Cavs in a 3-0 series deficit, one that’s never been overcome in NBA history. The Warriors won the series in five games. The Cavs, meanwhile, have had no shortage of offseason drama.

  • Baynes declining option, becoming free agent

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Detroit backup center Aron Baynes is declining his player option for next season and becoming a free agent. Stan Van Gundy, the Pistons' coach and team president, confirmed the move Tuesday. The 30-year-old Baynes averaged 4.9 points in 75 games last season and has been a capable backup to Detroit star Andre Drummond over the past two years. Baynes has had to play crucial minutes at times, when Drummond was limited late in games because of his poor foul shooting. Detroit also has 7-foot-3 Boban Marjanovic, who can play a bigger role backing up Drummond if the Pistons lose Baynes. Marjanovic appeared in 35 games last season.

  • Motion for restraining order to block Pistons move denied by judge

    DETROIT (WJBK) - A battle to keep the Pistons from moving to Detroit played out in a downtown courtroom Monday - and a move to block the team from moving to Little Caesars Arena appears to be over. Federal Judge Mark Goldsmith issued his opinion to deny a lawsuit blocking the Detroit Pistons from going downtown. Goldsmith has denied the preliminary injunction requested by activist Robert Davis and City Clerk candidate D. Etta Wilcoxon. The activists wanted voters in Detroit and Wayne county to decide whether taxpayer's money should be used to fund the project. The city said the lawsuit should've been thrown out. On Monday the judge listened to both sides for more than an hour and tonight it appears

  • Judge denies request to block funding tied to Detroit arena

    A judge has denied a request to block some public funding for Little Caesars Arena and the Detroit Pistons' move from the suburbs. U.S. District Court Judge Mark Goldsmith issued his decision late Monday, saying a requested injunction would cause "catastrophic damage" to Detroit. The lawsuit says Michigan law prohibits spending school property tax revenue on the projects because a tax voters approved in 2012 was to be used exclusively for Detroit's public schools.

  • Lawsuit Could 'Kill' Detroit Pistons Move To New Downtown Arena

    A lawsuit that seeks to block the use of public school funds for the Detroit Pistons’ move from the suburbs to the Little Caesars Arena under construction downtown could “kill” the project and trigger a municipal bond default, the city’s attorney said Monday. Community activist Robert Davis’ lawsuit asks a federal judge to stop the capture of funds from millages for Detroit schools and county parks to pay for a $34.5 million headquarters and practice facility for the Pistons. Public dollars are already being captured through tax increment financing to service $250 million in bonds issued for Little Caesars Arena, the future home of Ilitch Holdings’ Detroit Red Wings.
