Chris Webber isn’t going to Greece

That's what he's telling ESPN's Marc Stein:

"I'm not going to Greece," Webber said. "It's no disrespect to [Olympiacos], but I can't do that. I'm an NBA guy. I don't want to just chase money. I want to make sure I respect the game.

"To tell you the truth, it's kind of stupid in a way to turn down stupid money, as my dad would call it, but I can't just do it for the money. If I'm going to play, I'm only going to play as a Piston ... unless something crazy happens."

The way I see it, it'd take something crazy happening for him to be a Piston, but at least we know where his heart's at. I'd re-hash this, but nothing has changed since last Friday. Also, watch for Orlando emerging as a dark horse for Webber, at least if they get an injury exception for the injured Tony Battie.
