Tayshaun Prince - 4 Years, $27 Million

AUBURN HILLS, MI - MARCH 23: LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat gets in for a dunk between Tayshaun Prince #22 and Chris Wilcox #9 of the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills on March 23, 2011 in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

Great news everyone. According to Yahoo! Sports, Tayshaun Prince will resign with the Pistons for 4 years and $27 million.

This move demonstrated Joe Dumars' commitment to keeping intact a roster that won 30 games last year. If the Pistons can win 30 games this year, they'll be 30-32, which should be good for ninth in the Eastern Conference. Do not examine the logic of what I just wrote.

Let's all just take a deep breath and be glad Tayshaun Prince can retire as a Piston. That, moreso than, say, wins, is what really matters. Some players have a hard time locking down a big payday when they are 34 years old. This signing is a strong stand against the agism that too often plagues championship teams.

And I think we're all looking forward to Prince-to-Singler for the next four years. I know I am.

Fortunately, Prince doesn't have back problems. Everything is unicorns.
