Q: Gregg Popovich said recently that Nando De Colo requested a trade earlier in the season. Were you exploring a trade all season, or did the deal with Toronto (traded Austin Daye to the Spurs for De Colo last month) just pop up last minute? RC Buford: I mean we looked for opportunities to help our team. There were times when Nando was playing a significant role that made it more difficult than other times because of injuries and such, so when opportunities became available that allowed us to help Nando accomplish his goals and give us an opportunity to look at Austin and see if he might be able to fit; I mean, often times things happen closer to the deadline than most, but it doesn’t mean that you were pursing it any harder or any less hard earlier than that. It’s just, people tend dance toward the deadline. San Antonio Express-News

Prince was indeed going to Memphis but it was Daye who would be accompanying him rather than Maggette. "When L. Frank walked out and told me to go into his office, I knew something was up because that hasn't happened in four years," Daye said, referring to Pistons coach Lawrence Frank, who summoned the fourth-year forward so president of basketball operations Joe Dumars could break the news over the phone. "I was kind of shocked. There's a negative and a positive. Negative is I'm moving away from a city that was always good to me and I've got a lot of friends (in Michigan). But there's a lot of positives. "Going to a team with a winning record, it will be a good experience." Booth Newspapers

A story written by Swedish writers while Jerebko was in London quoted the forward's father, Chris, and the Swedish national team manager, Jonte Karlsson, concerning his current nonrole on the team. Jerebko has been out of the rotation since November. The story offered the theory that the Pistons were showcasing Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva for a possible trade, which seems unlikely. "You do not sell a player and get rid of his contract if he is sitting on the bench," Karlsson was quoted in the story. Before Tuesday's game against Orlando, Jerebko said: "I didn't read the story, so I don't know what it said. Everybody has a right to their own opinion. It's media. They probably twisted it."
