        The 24 year old warrior at power forward is reportedly being courted by Detroit. According to Bass's agent "They (Pistons) are definitely on the short list,"  The positives of Brandon Bass and one of the reasons he's being pursued by teams such as Orlando and Portland, is he's a straight up banger who isn't afraid to get physical. He goes hard to the hoop relentlessly and also shoots a high percentage on free throws (86.7) Bass scored 8.5 pts and gobbled 4.5 rebs in just under 20 minutes of playing time. He swatted away .7 and was very durable, playing in 81 games this year and 79 last year. The knocks on Bass are he's undersized for a PF and he needs to develop his passing skills (1:2 assist to TO rating) and possibly developing a mid-range jumper. He seems like a clone of Jason Maxiell though younger (Bass 24, Maxiell 26), and possibly better (Bass put up 15.7 pts and 8.4 rebs per 36 minutes, compared to Maxiell's 11.6 and 8.3), so you have to speculate the Pistons are looking at offers with Jason Maxiell as an additional piece. Detroit doesn't have enough to cap to compete with Portland so we'll have to clear some via trade if we are serious about getting Bass. It would be possible we move Afflalo, with Rip and Gordon occupying the backcourt, there aren't much minutes for the defensive minded swingman.
