CBS DETROIT – Between Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith, the Detroit Pistons have had a rather crowded frontcourt so far this season, and it looks like that will continue since the trade deadline has passed and no movement by the Pistons has been reported.
According to Zach Lowe of ESPN’s Grantland.com, the Pistons talked to teams about Smith, who signed a four-year, $54 million deal with Detroit this year.
Other teams say Pistons indeed shopping Josh Smith, but demanding more than just dead expirings.—
