Could another deal be brewing? Probably not, looks like Joe is trying to avoid the luxury tax.
“The Detroit Pistons will trade seldom-used guard Alex Acker to the Los Angeles Clippers for an exchange of future draft picks, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Sunday.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade hasn’t been announced.
The Pistons might stand pat before Thursday’s trading deadline, instead of trading Allen Iverson and Rasheed Wallace, despite its struggles this season.
If Detroit doesn’t make another trade, it will clear about $23 million in salary-cap space to make major moves this summer and in 2010 when a slew of marquee free agents will be available.” Via SI.com
With a win tonight The Pistons could make this a perfect road trip. The 7-3 Phoenix Suns are standing in Detroit’s way and former Pistons assistant and now head coach of the Suns Terry Porter knows the old Detroit team.
“That’s a totally different Detroit team right now, nothing like they used to be. Chauncey Billups was the glue to everything they ran before. But, come on, they still have a lot of pieces and they added a Hall-of-Fame player. I think they are going to be all right.” Via The Detroit News
Porter has been changing things around if Phoenix, they play defense.
