Matt Dery: Pistons Parting Ways With Hamilton
Richard Hamilton is no longer a Detroit Piston.
The team waived the veteran guard on Friday, buying out the remainder of his contract. Sources tell 97.1 The Ticket that Rip will get significantly less than the $22 million that he is owed.
The Pistons do not use the new amnesty clause on Hamilton, meaning he can become an unrestricted free agent right away.
