Antonio McDyess still plans on returning

From Chris McCosky:

"I really haven't thought about (this summer), not at all, really," he said. "I know teams are struggling for money and all kinds of things are going on with the economy."

McDyess said all he's looking for is one, maybe two more years.

"I am not looking for anything longer than that," he said.

And the Pistons are still his first option.

"Yeah, from Day One that's been my thought and I haven't changed," he said. "It's not going well this year, but I know eventually it's going to get better. I know with Joe (Dumars, president), it can't stay like this for long."

He'll be a restricted free agent this summer, and just like earlier this season, he'll have no shortage of suitors. As a fan of the team, I certainly hope he finishes his career in Detroit -- but as a fan of the man, I'd urge him to strongly consider all of his options.

There's not a player on this roster who plays with more heart and urgency than he does every single night, and I wouldn't begrudge him in the least if he let himself be wooed by a team like the Spurs or Cavs. (Just not the Celtics, Dyess, I'm begging you!) In my entire history supporting this team, I'm not sure I ever felt that way about another player, but the guy deserves a ring, plain and simple.
