09:49 AM ET 11.06 | If there's one thing being worse for the Pistons than being winless, it's adding drama to the equation. The team held a meeting to address recent concerns surrounding the conflicts between the players and coach John Kuester, but it's not known how guard Rodney Stuckey will be handled. Stuckey was benched by Kuester in the second half of Wednesday's game against the Hawks, after apparently ignoring Kuester's attempts to get his attention.

Bc he is actually a young productive player?

Highly doubt it is the player on this one.

Bigger thing was Last Night...Kuester benched Stuckey for the Whole game, and started T-Mac, yes T-Mac, at point guard, and used Will Bynum as the backup pG, vs the Bobcats, and Detroit WON !

Stuckey unhappy cause Joe D. did not give him an extension...making him a RFA at the end of the year....could be a LONG season in Detroit.

I don't know if the numbers would work, but send M Bibby, M Williams for Stuckey, Prince. Looks like atleast 3 of the 4 mentioned need fresh starts!

Hard to sell yourself with the team getting its 1st win while you're not playing. Detroit traded Billups and has waited 3 years for Stuckey. It may be time to 'go in another direction/'

Clears CAP for Atlanta ;) ....Bibby 2 years, and Williams 4 years contacts for Stuckey, a RFA, and Prince expiring contact...so that Atlanta can try to flip Prince exp contact for a Center ...right!

Lots of uncertainty in Detroit, they have too many of the same players at PG and SG, they have to move someone if they want to get better immediately, they got players that they can move. Stuckey, Prince and Hamilton can be moved to get strong and more balanced. The Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats could be a good fit for these guys.

How about Stuckey, Prince Exp Contact, & CV#31, to the CLIPS for Kaman, and Baron Davis....i could see the CLIPS doing a Salary dump like that!...

DET...C / Kaman, pF / Wallace, sF / Daye or ??, sG / Gordon or RIP, pG Davis ...and for the CLIPS, who cares it's cousin Vinny!

Him and Will Bynum are the new faces of the franchises. Make these guys happy.

What has Stuck won to act like such a diva. Shut up and play, bro.

I'd like to give Stuckey one more crack at Detroit Basketball. If it doesn't workout, ship him to Houston for Jordan Hill.

Detroit has already had their M Williams experience n Bobby is getting a little long in the tooth. This trade is one sided. A package surrounding Prince for Josh Smith is the only way to get Detroit interested.

I'd welcome a trade for Kaman bit I think Prince, Stuckey, CV is too much to give up. I dont know about Davis to Detroit. Obviously he has talent but we already have problems getting max effort out of our current PG. Davis presents the same problem.

I feel bad for biggie and cruise, cause JoeD has gone madNot sure what he's waiting for to make some moves......Maybe isiah is in his ear telling him everyrhing is all right, that all he needs is another sg or sf

The GM calls the shots and makes all the decisions but at the end of the day the owner must sign-off on any trade the increases payroll or moves substantial talent.

Nothing gets done in Detroit until the sale goes through...sigh
