Detroit Pistons Also Looking to Land Chris Webber


Former Piston Chris Webber said in a Sacramento TV interview Sunday that he expected to be playing ‘in two weeks.’ He wouldn’t name teams but said a handful had offered him a spot.The Pistons have maintained that they are speaking with Webber and his agent but would only bring him back as the team’s fourth big man. They also would need to clear a roster spot because they are at the league limit of 15.That means they would need to find a taker for combo-guard Flip Murray, who hasn’t played since Dec. 12. The team is actively shopping Murray and has until the Feb. 22 trade deadline to make a move.Financially, the Pistons have the money under the luxury tax to bring Webber in after shedding Nazr Mohammed.
