In a strange turn of events the Pistons had decided to trade Chauncy Billups for Allen Iverson during this NBA season. This trade to many seemed silly considering they traded their superstar Point Guard for a hot shot offensive scoring SG, while they still had Richard Hamilton on the team. Others, however thought that they may have been setting themselves up for the free agency class of 2010 and today It seems that was the case. After the recent comments by coach Michael Curry it become evident that the Pistons have no interest in Iverson past this season. Curry said, “It just didn’t work; it didn’t blend well…There was a lot to do with guys changing roles and accepting different roles you have to play. It’s unfortunate things didn’t go as we thought they would.” Curry then told the media that Iverson will sit the remainder of the season. Michael Curry on Saturday night, during his pre-game conference in Philly said, “Hopefully, the time off will get his body back to top condition and be prepared for free agency,” So no matter what the pistons are going to move on, leaving Allen Iverson and his Reebok Sponsorship to the open market!
