The Pistons are scouring trade and free-agent possibilities in the aftermath of Brandon Jennings' season-ending injury, Van Gundy said. "We've got a few balls in the air right now, so as much as we'd like to get it done really soon, we'd also like to make what we think is the best decision," he said. "We sort of know Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, but Plan A has to sort itself out first before we go on to the others. So it could be a couple days still." Booth Newspapers

The Detroit Pistons are looking into the possibility of trading for Miami Heat point guard Norris Cole, league sources tell Northeast Ohio Media Group. Miami has sent the word out that the 26-year-old defensive specialist can be had. There's nothing imminent at this point and talks have been described as "exploratory," a source said.

The Pistons have an open roster spot, and Van Gundy said a third point guard likely will be with the Pistons by the end of the week. Despite trade speculation, Van Gundy dismissed the idea of dealing anything of value just to add a third point guard. "We want to give ourselves every chance, so we want to get some help, but we won't mortgage anything in terms of the future," Van Gundy said. "We're not going to go out and give away assets, picks or anything like that. No, we're not gonna do that." That means a temporary solution probably could be found in the D-League, with a 10-day contract. Detroit Free Press

At every stop, he's routinely asked about his surprising move of releasing Josh Smith with well over $27 million left on his contract, and the answer is so common it almost feels like the words are rehearsed. But perhaps he wants to show his acumen as an executive with such statements about the unheralded Tolliver and Anthony. "A lot of times all people focus on is major moves, but if you really look at the way people build teams, it's little by little," Van Gundy said. Detroit News

"Stan and I, fortunately for both of us, we've had such a great chemistry and communication with each other since he's come on board, really from our first meeting," Gores said. "Stan is a very thorough guy ... for me, what was comfortable was knowing Stan is such a good coach, and with him, if we're 5-23, which we were, something's not right. "It's not just making a rotation change. I know he was working as hard as possible ... it was very collaborative with each other, like I would do with a CEO. I really challenged Stan to think creatively." NBA.com

"I think it's interesting how intangibles come into play," Gores said. "Our young guys are getting more minutes. We did get Meeks back and that's something you can't ignore, Having Jodie, first of all, he has great energy. Even if he doesn't have a great game he helps the team. He helps KCP (second-year shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope). "Meeks has been a big part of us coming back. And, really, letting Stan run the system he wants. Having Josh and Monroe, It just wasn't working. There just wasn't enough room." NBA.com

"I wish they wouldn't have traded away Chauncey the first time," Stuckey said today at The Palace, where he'll take the floor as a visitor for the first time when his Indiana Pacers play the Pistons. "To be honest with you. I wish they would have took the San Antonio Spurs' philosophy of keeping all their vets, getting younger guys around their vets, and doing it that way. You see how successful they are. "After Chauncey left, that's when everything went downhill. He was the glue that kept everything together, kept everybody accountable. Once you trade that away, you see what happens. Everything was just a domino effect after that." Booth Newspapers
