Jeff Bower Rumors
Detroit Pistons general manager Jeff Bower is a Hall of Famer. He recently was inducted into the Blair County Sports Hall of Fame. “Those three words aren’t normally attached to my name,” he said on a recent podcast with Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. “Actually, it was a terrific night.” On April 23, Bower was part of the 17th class to be inducted at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, Pa.
Pistons general manager Jeff Bower, without addressing Maker specifically, said the team might be more willing to take a boom-or-bust chance with a high-ceiling prospect because of improved roster stability after a 44-win season. “I think we could,” Bower said. “I think the strength of the draft is such that picking at 18, you’re going to look for some ways to make a difference and that’s one avenue that we’ve looked at.”

“Standard with all trades, medical clearance on all players involved is required for completion. Medical clearance was not given on all players and the trade is being rescinded,” said Jeff Bower, General Manager of the Detroit Pistons. “In view of privacy considerations relating to medical information, we will have no further comment.”
Pistons general manager Jeff Bower appeared on the “Sean, Marc and Maz” morning show on Detroit Sports 105.1 Monday to provide the latest. “I wouldn’t really handicap it at this point,” Bower said. “What we’re doing is gathering all the information from a team of experts. When that whole process is completed, we’ll be able to make a final decision on the trade. “It’s unfortunate we’re in this waiting zone, but it’s very important that the due diligence and the information is gathered, collected and fully understood, both short-term and long-term.”
Bower, who said he’s been on both of ends of voided NBA trades in the past, said several conference calls were planned for this afternoon. “It happens more frequently than we realize,” Bower said. “And that’s all because of the process that’s in place and protections teams have in acquiring players.”
