08:09 AM ET 12.19 | Locking up Rodney Stuckey may be the last expensive free-agent move the Pistons make for the 2011-12 season, which now finds them reportedly within about $6 million of the luxury tax penalty. They still want someone with a paint presence, either offensively as a primary scoring option or defensively as a shot-blocking and rebounding threat. One would believe the trade market is the Pistons' best avenue to make personnel moves. Players who have been re-signed (Stuckey, Jonas Jerebko, Tayshaun Prince) can't be traded until March 1 at the earliest. Perhaps the Pistons will give the Utah Jazz a phone call or two. They're one of the few teams with an abundance of bigs at their disposal, including Enes Kanter.

Time for Joe to go. Every move since sheed has been a disaster. No one else would have given Stuckey $4 mil per year.

Joe D. has been making bad choices since he drafted Darko over Melo way back when...

They have a lot of tweener types on the roster...it's ugly. Time to blow it up and start over...I would start with the GM (he's clueless).
