With the Pistons without Jodie Meeks for the first six weeks of the season, they've reportedly inquired with Minnesota Timberwolves about swingman Chase Budinger. A league source confirmed a Yahoo! Sports report about the Pistons having interest in Budinger, a 6-foot-7 forward who appears caught in a numbers game at small forward. Nothing appears to be imminent, but it looks like the Pistons are at least kicking the tires on Budinger before the season begins. The Pistons actually drafted him in the second round in 2009, in a pre-arranged deal with the Houston Rockets, where he developed into a contributor before knee and ankle injuries have limited him to just 64 games over the past two seasons. Detroit News

Among talks with several teams, the Detroit Pistons and Houston Rockets have shown an interest, league sources said. Houston is reluctant to take on the $5 million player option on Budinger’s deal in 2015-16, as are the Pistons, sources said. Nevertheless, the Pistons are taking a long look at Budinger and considering the possibility of making a deal. No trade is considered imminent for Budinger. Yahoo! Sports

“I don’t want to tell y’all that because y’all think I’ll retire after this year, man,” Williams said. “I’ve got some years left in me. But absolutely, they know that, a lot of coaches know it just because of my personality. In the summertime, I coach my AAU teams personally. I practice them personally. It’s a passion. It’s something when my legs say I can’t do it no more and guys like Zach and Andrew keep coming into the league, I’ll probably have to start coaching.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
