Are Andre Drummond, Lawrence Frank and Joe Dumars all on the same clock?

Tom Gores has made it pretty clear that he sees no reason why we can't make the playoffs next year. He expects it. So when your owner expects something, you need to deliver as soon as you...

...failing to live up to expectations: Tayshaun Prince

Tayshaun Prince, SF, Detroit Pistons Prince still has those long arms on defense and the ability to give you a little bit of everything on offense, but he’s contributing just a little bit less of everything for a confused Detroit team. His shooting is cold (41.6 percent after consistently hitting around 46 percent to 48 percent for his career), but the non-scoring numbers that get at the 31-year-old’s activity level are more worrisome — and perhaps indicate age is finally catching up to him. Prince’s assists, rebounds and free throws are all way down, and he just hasn’t been as dynamic a presence on defense this season. Some of this is due to the context in Detroit, where rookie guard Brandon Knight has added yet another ball-handler with whom everyone must share, Greg Monroe is snagging boards and assists all over the place and the team is struggling badly in general. Prince is on a reasonable contract (four years, $28 million), and he provides a veteran presence. But he’s also standing in the way of some young guys, especially Austin Daye, and he’d be more valuable in a limited role on a good team. http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2012/01/20/some-failing-to-live-up-to-expectations/

"Those are assets. Rebuilding is not about letting assets walk," Dumars said Wednesday night on 971 The Ticket. "Stuckey is 24 or 25 (he's 25). He's a young guy and part of the rebuilding process. Tayshaun Prince, when you look at rebuilding, there is always going to be one veteran you have going forward with young guys." "You don't let assets walk," Dumars said. "That is not how you rebuild. Tayshaun is a veteran and he is an asset. He is the one veteran we committed to moving forward."

Former Sixers center Marreese Speights was traded to Memphis earlier this week, which, of course, spurred a reaction from Pistons fans wondering why the team didn't get involved in trading for a big man who can score. The Pistons were in talks with the Sixers, but the Sixers wanted draft picks and not actual players in return for Speights, who was traded for two second-round picks. The Pistons like him but didn't want to give up picks while adding payroll.

Tom Gores hires Dave Checketts as consultant

Former New York Knicks president Dave Checketts is serving as a basketball consultant to new Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, according to sources close to the situation. The news of Checketts' involvement coincides with former Knicks great Patrick Ewing's emergence late last week as a candidate for the Pistons' coaching vacancy. Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars continues to serve as Detroit's lead basketball decision-maker, with Gores announcing when he officially took control of the franchise earlier this month that "we're going to lean on [Dumars] pretty heavily." Yet sources said that Gores is also taking a level of input from Checketts, who headed up New York's management structure when the Knicks were built around Ewing. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=6709060
