    How do you pronounce Afflalo? Is it aff-la-low or aff-lay-low? Or something different altogether?

    It’s A-Fla-Low, at least that’s how I have heard it being pronounced when he was with UCLA.

    {stuckey}should be a great scorer off the bench next season, along with improved defense in Affalo.

    I wish when we showed affalo and stuckey they had jerseys #6 and # 13 wouldnt that be a preety sight? guess we just missed on Mo pete too..

    Peterson, 29, made about $4.5 million last year as a reserve. A starting position at the shooting guard spot came open Monday when Derek Fisher was released by the Jazz so he could find the best medical care for his daughter.

    Although a lot of media sources postulated about Peterson as a potential Piston signee, did any information ever emerge that indicated Detroit contacted him or his agent? It seems the idea of Detroit ever having a shot at Peterson was more fiction than it ever was reality.

    Did Mo Pete actually sign anywhere else yet or are you just assuming that he will sign with Utah? Also, I just heard that Billups did agree to a contract with the Pistons on ESPN. Anyone else here that?

    Chauncey agrees to deal via espn.com

    ” After some miscommunication, Chauncey Billups and the Detroit Pistons have come to an agreement.

    ESPN’s Ric Bucher reports sources say that Billups has now agreed to multi-year deal with the Pistons, but terms and length of the deal are unknown at this time.

    On Wednesday, Billups’ agent, Andy Miller, refuted a reports that his client had agreed to a contract that could be five years and worth $60 million.

    “This is a vicious rumor,” Miller told The Detroit Free Press. “It’s entirely untrue. We have not reached an agreement. I don’t know what stage we’re at. We’re having ongoing discussions, and I don’t believe that we’re on the verge of signing an agreement anytime today by any stretch of the imagination.”

    On Tuesday, The Associated Press and some Detroit-area media outlets had reported that Billups and the Pistons had agreed to a five-year contract. According to the Associated Press, its source, who requested anonymity because of league rules preventing contract announcements before July 11, said the deal is worth $46 million guaranteed over four years and the fifth year is a team option.

    Billups had become an unrestricted free agent last month after opting out of the last year of a six-year contract.

    Joe Dumars, the Pistons’ president of basketball operations, said shortly after the team was eliminated from the conference finals by the Cleveland Cavaliers that his top priority was re-signing Billups.

    The 6-foot-3, 202-pound All-Star said he would prefer to stay with Detroit and expected to be back if the team could match any other team’s best offer.

    Billups, 30, who played with the Celtics, Denver, Orlando and Minnesota in his first four seasons, was selected the NBA Finals MVP in 2004 when Detroit won the championship. He was an All-Star in each of the next two seasons.

    He averaged 17 points and 7.2 assists in 70 games last season and 14.5 points and 5.3 assists over his nine-year career. But Billups struggled in the playoffs each of the past two seasons, and averaged 15.3 points, 3.5 assists and 3.8 turnovers in the Eastern finals against the Cavs. “

    heres a few names for backup sfs that we might be able to get…

    # Ruben Patterson: Patterson is coming off his career-high scoring season, but the Bucks want no part of him. He would provide defensive toughness and present a nice change of pace subbing for Tayshaun Prince. He’s 32 and has baggage, but he wouldn’t cost the Pistons the full mid-level.

    # Mickael Pietrus: He is restricted, which means the Warriors can match any offer. He’s athletic and has shown flashes of greatness. It would be a coup if the Pistons could land him.

    # Desmond Mason: He’s limited offensively, despite above-average athleticism.

    # Matt Barnes: He had a breakout year with the Warriors and was one of their best players in the playoffs. He’s an aggressive 6-foot-7 wingman who showed the ability to attack the basket and score. He has a limited perimeter game but would be an upgrade over Carlos Delfino. He’s 27 and just entering his prime.

    # Sasha Pavlovic: A longshot, but his length and quickness on the perimeter hurt the Pistons’ offense in the playoffs. The Cavaliers are expected to match any offer.

    I don’t want Sasha on our team this next season. He and the Cavs just beat us. Sorry if I’m bitter still. Pietrus and Barnes are pretty good actually. I bought a couple of the GS and Dallas playoff games off nba.com and both of those guys are pretty athletic.

    I’m really looking forward to Stuckey and Afflalo on our team this upcoming season. They say Afflalo comes off screens like Rip and Stuckey can play point and 2 guard. They both come with something to prove especially Stuckey since he came from a small college and everyone thinks he didn’t play against the best.
