Pistons Probably Not Looking at LeBron James

Did Pistons president Joe Dumars make the Allen Iverson trade to put the Pistons in position to court LeBron James when he becomes a free agent in 2010?

Dumars said the fact the trade could help the Pistons get $21 million or more under the salary cap this summer and save them $36 million all told, was secondary. He made the trade to help make the Pistons better this season.

There is no way Dumars has made landing James a target or a priority.
