Source: #Pistons have no plans on using amnesty clause at this time…
If this is not a bluff,* I support the move. Take another year to assess the many talented and overpaid players on the roster and don’t risk dropping the one who will turn around.
*And it very well could be, because it would be even more difficult to trade one of their amnesty candidates if other teams believe they can sign their target as a free agent.
Update: If you were at all confused by the ambiguousness of Goodwill’s “at this time,” Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press has clarification:
Like @deryNBA, @vgoodwill say: #Pistons not using amnesty clause this offseason. Hinted at that in column 2 days ago, but didnt know 4 sure.
