Pistons Sign Walter Sharpe and Will Bynum

by | Jul 21, 2008 | 7 comments

“A League source tells WDFN’s Matt Dery that the Pistons are close to signing second round pick Walter Sharpe to a two year contract. Sharpe was the team’s first of three second round picks out of UAB. Also, WDFN has learned that the Pistons have offered Will Bynum a one year deal to be their third point guard. Bynum played very well for the Pistons summer league team in Las Vegas.” Via Matt Dery of WDFN

Three point guards on the roster not counting Lindsey Hunter, makes you think.

    i feel happy for will bynum

    as for the pistons, i dont think his signing will have much impact on their success, it’s a requirement these days to have backups deep in ur bench and he gives u that in case injuries happen

    as for walter sharpe, we all knew he was being signed, so no big surprise there

    I’m happy we signed Will Bynum I feel he deserves a chance to be a solid rotation player and he’s a bit like a young Lindsey with his harrasing defense and willingness to score (there will never be another Lindsey NEVER) we’ll see how he does I have a feeling he’s going to be a bit like Amir was last year. Everyone will be clamoring for him to play more

    will is a great pick up. like dominic said he is like lindsey. I think this might mean that Lindsey is going to retire or chauncey is going to be traded.

    I think we all expected Sharpe, but Will Bynum is a good looking prospect. I don’t expect him to be on the floor much so it’s not really worth getting excited about yet.

    man i agree, cant wait for that trade deadline to pass.. then we’ll still have to hear dumars sucks from a bunch of ppl im sure, whether a trade is made or not… but at least the trade proposals will be done with
