McDyess is coming Home

by | Nov 23, 2008 | 29 comments

No need for this, Antonio’s agent says he’ll be back on Dec 3rd.

“McDyess will re-sign with the Pistons on Dec. 3, after a league-mandated 30-day waiting period expires. He will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2008-09 season.

“It was a very difficult decision for him. He was weighing good offers financially, along with other variables he thought were important,” agent Andy Miller told ESPN.com. “But going into the year he had a team goal set, and to not finish up with it, he didn’t want to do that. He wants to finish the year, finish what he started in Detroit, then reevaluate after the season is over.” Via Chris Sheridan ESPN

    I may have to make a trip to Michigan to see his first home game and participate in this man’s standing ovation.

    Who will they start now: Dyess, Kwame, Paper Thin?
