The saga of Ben Wallace and whether or not the Pistons will find a roster spot for him continues, but Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News shed some light today. Wallace could be in training camp like players Jonny Flynn and Terrence Williams, who are on training camp non-guaranteed contracts. But while those players failing to make the roster would tear at no sentimental heart strings, Wallace is another matter. From Goodwill:
As for Ben Wallace, he won’t be in camp. #Pistons don’t want to put him in a position where if a move isn’t made, they’d have to cut him

I’m still hopeful the Pistons do make a roster move to clear a spot for Wallace to return. But that tweet from Goodwill also makes it seem like a longer shot the Pistons will make room for Williams or Flynn — if they can’t clear a space for Wallace, who reportedly wants to play, I would think that finding a spot for Williams and/or Flynn would be a lower priority.
