Dumars Again Denies Prince Trade Rumors

By Drew Sharp, Freep.com - It was curious when Tayshaun Prince was a late scratch Tuesday due to what the team reported as a lower back strain, and Jason Maxiell didn't play against Orlando.

Was there a trade in the works? Were they considering packaging Prince and Maxiell for another expiring contract that could help them next summer in the free-agent shopping market?

Joe Dumars shot down the suspicions, insisting there are no deals looming.

He figures that the Pistons already have enough new faces.

Report: Pistons hope to re-up Maxiell soon

Booth Newspapers reports that the Detroit Pistons hope to work out a contract extension with 6-7 forward Jason Maxiell before the end of training camp.

Detroit offers Maxiell three-year extension

The Detroit News reports that the Pistons have offered Jason Maxiell a three-year extension worth approximately $15 million.

Should he leave that contract on the table, he would play out the final year of his contract this season (earning $1.87 million) and become a restricted free agent -- which means the Pistons could match any contract offer to Maxiell.
