Pistons to sign Ben Wallace

Ben Wallace will sign a one year, $1.3 million contract with the Pistons next week, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News.

Unlike most Pistons bloggers, I love this move. I’m busy with work, but I’ll have more analysis on the signing today.

    i like it, but I don’t love it.  I love Big Ben and since it is for only a year it is worth a shot.  Maybe being back in the motor city will get Ben back on track.

    Great move. Ben was actually pretty effective in Cleveland. Not worth the $16 million a year he was making, but definitely a great value for the vet’s minimum, and certainly nowhere near “washed up” as I’ve seen some people saying today.

    I think its a great move. He brings defense the pistons need and veteran experience that the pistons are lacking.

    Anybody is better then K.Brown,So now all they have to do is drop Wilcox at that 5 slot let Big Ben back him up and roll 2 the playoffs.

    Bens Been done… i honestly dont kno what the pistons plan is i am completly baffled… I always thought the general plan was to place your team in position to win… i hope next years draft class is strong because were looking at a lottery pick people… smh

    Joe wants to sell more TIX.  It’s working.

    This is an incredibly pleasing move.  Love Ben from his days of old.  Who else are you going to get for 1.3 that would be better?  A nice move to not only help with tix, but also give a solid vet presence on a young team. Good locker room guy.  I hope he gets his old number back, Stuckey has never been worthy of that # IMO.  I am surprised more hasn’t been written about this move througout the blogosphere, it really is such a feel good story.

    Hey, I like the move to have Ben back, true he has lost some of his game but he is a proven player and his presence in the locker room will help the young guys now the Joe needs another player but this helps. Let’s Go Pistons

    its a good move for the pistons who def lack some inside defensive presence, although i bet signing with the bulls for a little more money and now he back here anyway where he could have been the whole time playing a role….must be kicking himself lol
