We'll start with the big topic of discussion: Chad Ford speculating that a deal between the Kings and Pistons would happen, if the Pistons were willing to accept. That deal, as we already know, is Sacramento's Andres Nocioni & the No. 5 pick for Tayshaun Prince & the No. 7 pick. Ford says, "the Pistons have been adamant that they are holding on to Prince." The Pistons are probably weighing all their options. After all, they could potentially get as high as No. 3 if the rumors that the Nets might be willing to trade their pick are true. Conceivably, though, Prince would still be great value at the trade deadline, so the Pistons could be holding on to him until then to see how the season plays out. Even if he plays miserable or gets hurt, he's still $11 million coming off the books for somebody looking to shed salary. The big question, of course, is whether or not his value is at its greatest right now. That's something Joe Dumars needs to figure out, obviously.
