Walter Herrmann will in fact return

We asked the question yesterday, and the Detroit Free Press confirms the answer today: Walter Herrmann agreed to a one-year deal to return to the Pistons.

He'll presumably serve as the primary backup small forward, though if the playoffs are any indication, I imagine we'll occasionally see three guards on the floor with Chauncey Billups at the one, Rodney Stuckey at the two and Rip Hamilton sliding over as the de facto three. I'd really like to see what Walter Sharpe brings to the table, but he may end up bouncing between the inactive list and the D-League.

In any case, I'm glad to see Herrmann will get another chance. He has an interesting skillset, and no matter what you think his ceiling is, he's always one of the most active players on the court. Oh, and his hands are ginormous, which should appease all the people complaining about Kwame Brown's digits.
