If this is true, my instincts were right about C-Webb’s future with the Pistons. I really liked what Webber did for the Pistons when he joined the team last season, even though he didn’t do much come playoff time. I just didn’t think that The Pistons were going to re-sign him this season, although I would have liked them to.
Various reports cited by a Los Angeles radio station have the Dallas Mavericks close to signing Detroit Pistons free agent forward Chris Webber to a one-year deal using their mid-level exception. The Mavericks are willing to offer him the entire MLE, but would prefer to give him $3.5 million and use the rest to add one more piece to the roster.
Webber would add another scoring threat in the front court and a that ever-elusive back-up to Dirk Nowitzki. Via Hoopsworld.com
I can’t say that I am to happy with the idea of Mohammed as the Pistons starting center, but at this point unless some kind of deal is goes down, it looks like that the way it will be. Nothing against Nazr, but he just didn’t click with the team all the time and when he did it seamed like Flip always took him out.
