It’s no secret the Pistons have long been trying to make trades to improve the team. Even guard Richard Hamilton and forward Tayshaun Prince, holdovers from the championship glory days earlier this decade, have been on the table.

Pistons President Joe Dumars recently told The Detroit News he’s “comfortable” with the current roster, but not “content.”

Pure logic would have the Pistons trade one of the myriad of wing players they have on the roster, (i.e. Hamilton or Prince to free up playing time for star guard Ben Gordon and newcomer Tracy McGrady), to fill holes in the post, especially with the injury to forward Jonas Jerebko.

But as Dumars told The Detroit News, he won’t pull the trigger on a deal unless it clearly benefits the team. So unless such a trade falls in his lap, the Pistons may stand pat for the foreseeable future.
