With the recent firing of coach Maurice Cheeks, a sense of change could be in the air in the Motor City. Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores was the man behind the drastic decision to dismiss Cheeks after just 50 games in charge, and rumor has it that long-term general manager Joe Dumars could well be next. So with changes made in management, and potentially in the pipeline in the front office, what will the Pistons do at the trade deadline about the men on the court?
Could Rajon Rondo be heading for Motown? Is Greg Monroe‘s time as a Piston nearly done? Will Detroit cut their losses on Josh Smith? The answer to all three of these questions is most likely, no. All signs are currently pointing to a quiet trade deadline for Pistons fans, so let’s take a look at why that is likely, and what it means for the team’s future.
