Pistons are talking trades … but don’t read into it

From Vince Ellis' blog:

Tayshaun Prince's last-hour scratch from Tuesday's victory over the Magic set off trade alarms, and with good reason.

With Jonas Jerebko and Austin Daye coming along and Hamilton and Stuckey getting time at small forward, one can see where Prince could be expendable.

But Joe Dumars killed the trade rumors, and a league source told me today that "the Pistons are talking like everybody else. Nothing special."

If they are talking, you have to imagine a scoring big man in high on their list of priorities, right? Chris Kaman, anyone?

Also, the News reports that neither Rip Hamilton or Tayshaun Prince are expected to play tonight in Orlando. No huge surprise, especially considering Prince didn't even travel with the team.
