Rumor season is fun. After anonymous sources said the Pistons might have some interest in free agents Michael Beasley and Terrence Williams, Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News talked to other anonymous sources who say otherwise:
Per sources, #Pistons have had no contact with Terrance Williams. Same with Beasley. Two words: Knucklehead factor. They want no part of it

Knuckleheads? Wow, those anonymous sources are mean. I tend to believe Goodwill’s sources here, though. Beasley and Williams are obviously both young guys with upside whose careers have been stuck because of a myriad of other factors within their control. Both guys have flaws that would give teams wanting to sign them reservations, hence both agents have reason to float it out there anonymously that there is interest, however minor, to help create a market.
I love July. It’s the best.
