David Aldridge: Pistons, per source, will not waive Rodney Stuckey, which would have saved $4.5M. Assuming no trade, he's on the books for 13-14 at $8.5M. Twitter @daldridgetnt

Stuckey's lackluster play earned him a first-half benching by assistant coach Brian Hill, which extended Stuckey's streak to three games without a field goal. It has been nine days since Stuckey last made a basket from the field, when he scored six points on 3-for-7 shooting March 1 at New Orleans. "I probably wasn't being aggressive," Stuckey said softly about his benching. "We did a good job of picking up the slack in the second half. We came in with some good energy defensively. We came down there knocking down shots as well, so we almost had a chance to win the game." Detroit Free Press

If the Pistons can off-load Rodney Stuckey and his $8.5 million team option for next season or Charlie Villanueva and his $8.5 million team option for next season before the trade deadline they could add to that number significantly. League sources peg Stuckey as the easiest chip to move and there is a belief that Detroit is more than open to a deal involving one or both. HoopsWorld

All appeared normal for the Pistons two nights after Frank deactivated Stuckey in the Pistons' victory at Orlando. It was confirmed minutes later when Frank told the media Stuckey would assume his spot in the playing rotation against the Bucks later that evening. Neither would disclose the reason for the disciplinary measure, but both admitted there was a difference of opinion. "Things happen every single day," Frank said. "So with it, you deal with it and you move on. "I'm one of those guys, I put it out there and we move on. There's no grudges; you just move from it." Detroit Free Press

Stuckey was in a joking mood with reporters, who noted his missing front tooth from a collision in December. He said he has a retainer and has to wait a little bit for a more permanent solution, saying he wasn't cool with the hockey-player look. But kidding aside, Stuckey said he was cool with Frank. They hashed out their issues during an optional workout Monday afternoon and all issues are apparently resolved. "We good," Stuckey said. "Me and (Frank) are fine. Sometimes you have disagreements with one another. He did what he had to do, and I respect that." Detroit Free Press

Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey never has been the outspoken type. The sixth-year guard could almost be termed reclusive; he prefers to stay out of the spotlight. But in recent time, he's taken steps to come out of his shell, to tell his seldom-heard personal story — and to help Detroit youngsters. Stuckey made a $10,000 donation to Blackwell Institute, a school on Detroit's deep east side, and spoke to the students Thursday about the importance of education. Detroit News
