Keith Langlois: Pistons more likely to use cap room for trades than free agents

As I’ve maintained all along, my hunch is that whatever cap space the Pistons clear – and it could be anywhere from $17 million to $25 million, based on what we know now – will be more likely used to facilitate trades than to be spent on free agents.

Langlois speaks with Joe Dumars on the record more than anyone else covering the Pistons, so it’s very possible he has solid information here. It’s also possible Langlois’ hunch is based more on his personal beliefs. I don’t know which is the case here, but it’s definitely worth being aware of what he said.
