The Detroit Pistons went isolayshaun and pulled off a left-handed buzzer beater at the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, acquiring ... wait for it ... Tayshaun Prince from the Boston Celtics! Yes, THE Tayshaun Prince who was part of the 2004 championship team, but then wore out his welcome before finally getting traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2013.

That's what Stein's hearing, too.
That means, barring any other news, the Pistons acquired Reggie Jackson and Tayshaun Prince at the trade deadline for D.J. Augustin, Kyle Singler, Jonas Jerebko and Gigi Datome. That doesn't sound too good. What do you think?
Now your thoughts.
