Joe Dumars: We’re Staying as We Are

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars told The Associated Press on Thursday he’s keeping the team together because no one offered him a good deal after he publicly put his players on the trading block in June.


When coach Flip Saunders was fired, Dumars said Rodney Stuckey was the only player he wouldn’t trade in a win-win deal.

"Whatever I said at that press conference wasn’t new to the players," Dumars said. "They know where I stood then and where I stand now, unhappy about how last season ended."
