Detroit Scores Early

The Detroit Pistons strike early and grab Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva on the first day of free agency. Joe Dumars has been a busy man in recent days, firing Michael Curry after only one year on Tuesday.

Quickly becoming UCONN Central, Gordon and Villanueva join Rip Hamilton as former University of Connecticut players on Detroit. Gordon signed a 5 yr $55 Million deal and Villanueva signed a 5 yr deal, expected to be about $35 million.


  1. How did we (at least I did) complete forget about Ben Gordon? Could we not afford him? He would've looked great in a Sixers uniform! (I say that in the most heterosexual way possible)

  2. The Sixers are over the cap. Even if they don't resign Miller, they are over the cap. That is why they are thinking sign and trade.
