Need4Sheed InterviewThere is no better way to kick off the Pistons season than having Chris Iott of Booth Newspapers and Mlive.com join me for an interview on the Need4Sheed podcast.

Chris gave me some exciting nuggets about the team and what he thinks of the upcoming season.  We talked, T-Mac, Daye, Charlie V, Stuckey, Ben Wallace and expectations.  Most surprising…who he says has the “sweetest shot” on the team.

Take a listen to the podcast, but most of all start following Chris over on Twitter, he’s always quick with the lowdown on the team.

I would like to thank  Chris for taking the time to do the show and for the great interview and insight.  If you’re not reading him over at MLive…you should.

In David Aldridge’s NBA.com article chronicleing the ‘Melo saga he threw in this line.

“A league source said Denver had made a recent attempt to pry Detroit guard Rip Hamilton from the Pistons without success to show Anthony that the organization could still put talented players around him.”

Most Pistons fan would think this was possible considering the fact that Rip and Chauncey are 2 peas in a pod but Pistons insiders don’t buy this one.

Just follow Matt Dery @deryNBA as well as M’Live’s Chris Iott @Chris_Iott and the Vincent Goodwill  @vgoodwill of the Detroit News on Twitter for the inside scoop.

If you really think about it, what could Denver offer Detroit for Rip?  Rip has 38 million over the next three seasons.  To keep  Mello, Chancey, Rip together they would have to give up Nene and more which I doubt would happen.

Trust Matt and the gang…this one is doesn’t work.

UPDATE: From Chris Iott of MLive

“A source with the Detroit Pistons said today that there is absolutely no truth to the report that the Denver Nuggets tried to acquire Pistons guard Richard Hamilton in a last-ditch effort to keep Carmelo Anthony in Denver.”
