Chris Webber watches from the stands

Chris Webber's statement to the AP:

"After careful thought and discussions with my family, I have decided I will sign with the Detroit Pistons," Webber said in a statement released by his agent, Aaron Goodwin. "I thank all of the interested teams for their time and consideration.

"Joining the Pistons will allow me the opportunity to play the game I love in my hometown of Detroit surrounded by my family. I look forward to joining a roster of talented athletes and working towards a fourth NBA title for the Pistons and the great city of Detroit."

Webber watched Monday's game from the stands and received a standing ovation as he took his seat. I'm pumped, how about you? Share your thoughts and reactions in the comments.
