Van Gundy would like to retain Anthony and sign another young big man. “I’m really hoping that we can keep Joel here,” Van Gundy said. “I’m really hoping that. We can’t negotiate with him yet, we can’t talk money, but I do think he knows. I talked to him, we’ve told him consistently. We would like to have him back. We’re going to sign another guy and then we’ll go from there. That’s a competition and we’ll try to sign the best guy we can. Joel, he’s far from being done, but he’s getting up there in years so we would like to sign a younger guy there. And he’s been made aware of that, he understands that. We don’t hide many things when we’re talking to our guys. We’re not trying to fool anybody.”
The Pistons have veterans who can offer spot help to a contender (Augustin, Caron Butler, even Jennings in the right situation). They have bigs they either might want to move, or who have no contractual obligations after this season, or both (Monroe, Smith, Joel Anthony, Jonas Jerebko). They have expiring contracts (Anthony, Jerebko, Monroe, Singler, Gigi Datome).
