Would the Pistons sign a player to a 10-day contract?


Patrick Hayes of Full-Court Press (loving the new hyphen) questions whether the Pistons should sign a player to a 10-day contract. Check out his post for an intriguing list of possibilities.

Joe Dumars has signed only one player to a 10-day contract in his 10 years as general manager. After the Pistons cut Smush Parker in 2005, they signed Anthony Goldwire the next day.

This is relatively new territory, but at least the Pistons are looking into a way to improve. From Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

"This is kind of off the beaten path, but the Pistons were out doing a little scouting Wednesday night.They were in Ft. Wayne, Ind., to get a look at NBDL small forward Amara Sy, 28, who plays for the Bakersfield Jam.He stands 6-foot-8 and is considered more an energy guy than a polished scorer."

That post is from Dec. 31, so the needs are little different. I think it’s most likely, as Hayes says, the Pistons will target a center if they go this route.

If I had to guess, they won’t spend the money for an extra player. But, apparently, they’re considering it.
