Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant nixed trade to Pistons in 2007, affecting possible Grant Hill return

The Pistons and Lakers agreed in principle on a deal but Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss, who passed away early Monday, and Bryant, who wanted out of Los Angeles but Detroit wasn’t one of his preferred destinations, passed.

A source confirmed the Pistons and Lakers agreed on a deal, which most likely included Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Amir Johnson and a future first-round pick for Bryant, who wound up being the 2007-08 MVP.

Another league source said former Piston Grant Hill, who was a free agent that summer as a member of the Orlando Magic, would’ve likely returned to the Pistons to fill Prince’s void at small forward.

Tayshaun Prince

Pistons reportedly trade Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye, get Jose Calderon, deal pending

The Detroit Pistons reportedly have traded Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye in a three-team deal that brings them Toronto Raptors point guard Jose Calderon.

The Pistons have not confirmed the deal but have made Prince and Daye inactive for tonight’s 7 p.m. game against the Indiana Pacers.

ESPN’s Mark Stein is reporting that Prince and Daye will go to the Memphis Grizzlies while the Toronto Raptors get high-scoring Rudy Gay and reserve center Hamed Haddadi from Memphis.

Toronto also will send a second-round pick, Calderon and Ed Davis to Memphis, which then moves Calderon to Detroit for Prince and Daye, according to Stein.

The move would give the Pistons even greater cap space than they already have this summer.  Calderon’s $10.5 million contract expires after this season, while Prince has two more seasons on the four-year deal he signed after the lockout was settled before last season.  Daye’s contract expires after this season. (MLive.com)
