Agent: Antonio McDyess Not a Lock to Return to Detroit Pistons

The odds still favor Antonio McDyess returning to the Detroit Pistons once his 30-day waiting period has expired, but the odds aren’t as short as they were just 48 or 72 hours ago.

McDyess planned to speak with his agent, Andy Miller, on Friday to begin whittling down the list of 18 teams that have expressed interest in signing the former Olympian and one-time All-Star.

"It’s not a foregone conclusion that he’ll go back to Detroit," Miller told Thursday night. "We’re sifting through everything that has transpired. I don’t think ‘hurt’ would be the way to characterize how he felt about being traded, but he was caught off guard."
