Rip Hamilton Remains A Piston, Killed His Own Trade

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, not only were the Pistons unable to trade guard Rip Hamilton to the Cavaliers before today’s 3 pm deadline, Hamilton was the person who killed the deal. Wojnarowski tweeted (@WojYahooNBA), “DET and CLE negotiated down to wire on a Rip Hamilton trade, but fell apart when Rip wouldn’t accept buyout terms with Cavs, sources say”. Wojnarowski followed that a few moments later with, “DET and CLE agreed on protected future draft pick to go with Hamilton, but Rip wouldn’t give back enough of $25M owed him, sources say”.
