Amir Johnson’s option picked up; Hunter may return

The Detroit News mentions today that the Pistons have officially picked up Amir Johnson's option for 2006-07 and have made a qualifying offer to restricted free agent Alex Acker, giving them the right to match any other offer he may receive. Those two moves were expected, but this is a bit of a surprise: Joe Dumars wants Lindsey Hunter to return instead of retiring, and Hunter is leaning toward coming back.
