Until you guys are settled at the point guard spot, you guys will be linked to every point guard on the market. Correct? (The question was referring to a rumor about Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings rumor offering Brandon Knight for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo). Joe Dumars: (sighs) Unfortunately, yes. But I’m telling you we haven’t had conversations with what’s being reported out there. I can flat out tell you that we haven’t conversations with those teams about that. Detroit Free Press

Being enamored with Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo isn’t anything new for the Pistons, but the two sides aren’t likely to embark on a trade any time soon. The Boston Globe reported the Pistons offered guard Brandon Knight and an expiring contract — either Rodney Stuckey or Charlie Villanueva, as cap relief — for Rondo, who’s recovering from an ACL tear. The Celtics would want Andre Drummond, who’s obviously not available and won’t be, and the Pistons want to see how the frontcourt of Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith play together before making any deals to drastically alter their foundation.

In his mind, Brandon Knight believes there’s no better point guard for the job than the one the Pistons selected two years earlier, but he heard the talk around the draft -- and didn’t have to sit in a news conference to know that. “I don’t really pay attention to that stuff; you hear it here and there. It’s expected,” Knight said. “Trey Burke, being from Michigan, it’s expected. It’s all good, it’s all motivation for me, though.” Detroit News

Jason Terry has been a human pinata for the better part of the last three days, subjected to ridicule for getting posterized by LeBron James in the Heat's win over the Celtics in Boston Sunday. Many observers believe Terry -- just like when the Pistons' Brandon Knight got dunked on by the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan -- simply should have gotten out of the way as James was about to catch the alley-oop. Cuban vehemently disagrees with that assertion. "More credit for Jet. I'm of the opposite category," the Mavs owner said last night. It's the gutless who worry about what they look like in a poster and it's the real guys, the real players who have no problem playing the game. "Like I said before, I give credit to Brandon Knight, I give credit to Jet. You do your job and not care about the posters or the tweets. Those are the kind of guys teams wants." Newsday

"I mean, to me, I don't know what the culture, whether it's an AAU environment — I hate to blame that — or what the situation is, but when I read that and saw that stuff how it was such a ... it just goes to show you we're celebrating the wrong (stuff). We really are." Frank added: "If Brandon could have fouled the guy (and stopped the basket), DeAndre Jordan, the way he shoots free throws, it would've been a total non-issue. But at least Brandon has the courage to put himself out there to make a play. And the fact that people laugh about it and joke about it, I don't know USA Today Sports
