June 29, 2011 Updates

The writing was on the wall when the Detroit Pistons drafted Kyle Singler in the second round of last week’s NBA draft, but they have declined to make a qualifying offer to third-year small forward DaJuan Summers -- basically turning him loose. Summers, 23, was a second-round pick in the 2009 draft and showed some promise at small forward during a rookie season in which the Pistons were beset by injuries. Detroit Free Press

Don't forget about DaJuan Summers, who's been mentioned as the likely candidate to join Hamilton in New Jersey — if the trade for Troy Murphy and Johan Petro comes to fruition.
