The 17-32 Detroit Pistons are in Milwaukee to take on the 23-26 Bucks on the first game of a back to back before the All-Star break. Milwaukee has won five of six games to move within percentage points of Miami for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Before we talk about anything, I have to mention the Trade Rumors that are going around. Via MLive
February 8, Arizona Republic: Possibilities with Philadelphia could be stronger with two fronts, a deal between bringing in swingman Andre Iguodala for Stoudemire with perhaps young power forward Marreese Speights or a three-way deal involving Detroit with Pistons guard Ben Gordon winding up in Philadelphia and the Suns getting Iguodala and Detroit power forward Chris Wilcox. The rub with Iguodala, a 26-year-old former Arizona star, is inheriting a contract that will pay him $56.5 million over the next four seasons.
Ben Gordon? Really? I see just about anyone but Gordon and Stuckey likely to be traded, but that’s just me.
