Joe Dumars suggested earlier this summer that he’d give Ben Wallace as much time as he wanted to consider whether or not he’d come back for another season. Tonight, Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News tweeted this:
Source tells me it’s a pretty good chance Ben Wallace returns next season #Pistons

Now obviously, I’m extremely excited by that news, albeit a bit biased. The Pistons could certainly use the defense, toughness and leadership Wallace is still capable of playing in short increments in their rotation. But the obvious problem it creates is the Pistons currently have no open spot on the roster for him, so this obviously means at least one player currently on the roster will not be by the time the season stars, perhaps making summer league performances even more important for a handful of players.
