07:46 AM ET 12.26 | So what's the solution for the Pistons? There are two, and neither is likely to happen. One is another blockbuster trade involving either Richard Hamilton or Allen Iverson, but president Joe Dumars vehemently said recently he will let things play out. But let's say the Jazz get antsy about losing Carlos Boozer without compensation, knowing he's going to opt out of his contract this summer. Wouldn't they consider swapping Boozer for Hamilton? It's not likely to happen, but it's not out of the realm, either. The second potential solution might be less drastic but not any less difficult. Whether or not the Pistons can get back to competing with the Celtics and Cavaliers might rest on the willingness of either Iverson or Hamilton to come off the bench. Both Iverson and Hamilton have said their only goal is to win a championship.
