But for now, the Pistons are rebuilding, and Prince is a 35-year-old piece of their history who most likely remain stay that way once the final 10 games of this season are complete. "I'm not going to jump to conclusions," Prince said. "But as you guys know, and as of my time in Boston before I got traded to Detroit, my intention was to get to a contender. You know, you can never say never, but obviously, at this point in my career, I think that's where I help teams the best. "A game like today, you'll see that every once in a while. It's not a situation where I'll do that night in, night out. But like I said in Boston, all options are on the table. Of course, I would prefer to be in a good situation. It's not a situation where it's like, 'No, no, I'm not coming back here.' But if you ask me if it's a contender, preferably, yeah, I would lean more towards that." Booth Newspapers

There’s another John Lucas in the NBA today. He’s your son, he’s a guard for the Detroit Pistons. How often you get to see him play? John Lucas: I don’t go to any of his games. That’s his life. As a former coach, I don’t want to go because then I end up trying to be the coach. I just watch at home, then I can turn the TV off and then have no ownership in that game. Me and my wife can’t watch when he gets in the game, because I’m so angry because he only grew to be about 5-foot-10, so when he’s in the game people take advantage of him. He can’t do things — they post him up, so I look at her. If I’d have married somebody else — now I’m blaming her! I’m blaming her for his height. He’s got my last name on the back of his shirt. But I’m really, really proud of John. He’s been a ball boy ever since he was like 6-years-old. It’s always been a dream of his to play. WBUR

Pistons forward Greg Monroe said he will play again for the Pistons this season. He just doesn't know when. Monroe was expected to miss his sixth consecutive game Friday night when the Pistons face the Orlando Magic at Amway Center. "It's definitely something I will be fine before end of the season," Monroe said following the Pistons game-day shootaround. "I am not there yet obviously, but it is definitely something that should not take a month for me to get over." Detroit News

The Reggie Jackson situation is a tough one to read. Since Greg Monroe went down to knee injury, Jackson has been on fire, logging double-double type numbers. The problem is the Pistons have regressed a lot since acquiring Jackson, making his future in Detroit murky at best. Sources close to the process say the team is still very committed to keeping Jackson long-term and does plan on making a sizable free agent offer. Basketball Insiders

On top of that, throw in Jackson's emotional nature. Remember how he hyperventilated in his Pistons debut? Remember how he admitted sobbing for joy when news of the trade reached him? He's dealt with the pressure of performing in huge playoff games, but this is different – proving himself to near strangers in a situation largely of his own creation. Behind the scenes, his teammates, coaches and the support staff see a player who so badly wants to shrink the acclimation process, be one of the guys and please everyone. "You don't know what a guy is going through and what's in his mind," Van Gundy said. "There's a lot going on in a new situation – new teammates to learn, new system to learn. And then all the other stuff, the emotions of the situation and wanting to prove yourself as a starter and the whole thing. There's just a ton of stuff going on." NBA.com

Reggie Jackson: "I think I've been overthinking myself at times. Just continue to (know) my teammates are all great shooters. You've got to move on to the next shot. I don't care if they've missed 20 in a row, I'm going to keep coming back to them once they're open. They've been telling me they know they've missed some shots, but when guys start to stay home on them, just continue to attack and find pull-ups, find ways to attack." Booth Newspapers

CBSSports.com NBA Writer James Herbert talked to Lopez after the game to find out more about his run-in with the Raptor: Where does the Raptor rank on your least favorite mascots list? Robin Lopez: He's up there. He's putting himself up there. Right now, I think he and Hooper from Detroit, they're in the top tier. They're really on my enemies list. What happened tonight? Robin Lopez: He was taunting me during warmups. He never got up the courage to actually go after me, but I can tell he was thinking it over in his head. CBSSports.com
