Don’t get too excited to watch the Pistons take on the Raptors tonight, well you can get excited but don’t expect to see Allen Iverson on court with his new team in Toronto.
According to A. Sherrod Blakley of MLive
“It looks as though Allen Iverson’s debut as a Detroit Piston will have to wait until Friday at New Jersey. Iverson, who underwent a physical by Detroit on Tuesday, is with the team in Toronto.
However, some of the other players involved in Monday’s trade — Chauncey Billups and Cheikh Samb — have yet to undergo their physicals. Antonio McDyess’ physical was waived.
Billups and Samb aren’t expected to arrive in Denver until later today. And with the two-hour time difference, it’s highly unlikely they will arrive in time to undergo their physicals prior to tonight’s 7 p.m. matchup against Detroit and Toronto.
As for McDyess, the Nuggets and McDyess’ agent, Andy Miller, are still trying to hash out a buyout agreement.”
As for the notion of Dyess to the Celtics……I say they are ridiculous. Dyess is not a ring chaser, if not Detroit then it’s his couch.
So we will probably have to enjoy the stylings of Stuckey and Bynum tonight….and I don’t feel bad about it one bit. While we wait for the tip which is at 7 PM and will be locally broadcast on FSN Detroit and on the AM at 1130 AM WDFN The Fan or stream it live through your computer at NBA.com, here is an Detroit Pistons Opening night video for your enjoyment.
