- The trade deadline has come and gone without Detroit making any moves to shake this team up. While this may help everyone in the clubhouse to breathe a little easier, it also means that any potential trade auditions are over (see: Tayshaun Prince). Hopefully those players most considered tradable assets will keep up their improved level of play tonight, not to mention down the stretch. We need guys who want to be Pistons.
- Yesterday, the Bucks acquired SG John Salmons from the Chicago Bulls. Bucksketball’s Jeremy Schmidt has some longer-term analysis of the trade (SPOILER: he likes it), but I’m not so sure very much of that is relevant tonight. Charlie Bell will still more than likely make the start, and Salmons’ playing time will probably be limited while he adjusts to his new team.
- Even though Dan is on vacation, I’ll be doing my best to cover for him over at Daily Dime Live to chat about the game.
