Pistons Detroit News: Pistons Re-Sign Big Ben

On a day when the Pistons signed all three 2009 draft picks, they also reached an agreement with one of their former all-stars.

Ben Wallace, the four-time defensive player of the year, agreed to terms with the Pistons on a one-year deal worth $1.3 million. Wallace is expected to sign the deal next week.

Wallace's role in Detroit, however, is expected to be a far reduced one than when he left for Chicago in 2006. He will be the fifth big man and serve as a much-needed leader on a team whose average age is 25.

His playing time is expected to be drastically reduced.

Wallace, who spent his last season battling injuries with Cleveland, will be 35 in September. He averaged 7.9 points and 12.8 rebounds with the Pistons from 2000-06.

The Pistons also signed first-round pick Austin Daye to a multi-year deal starting at $1.4 million. Second-round picks DaJuan Summers and Jonas Jerebko also signed 2-year deals worth $457,000 per year.

Wallace - C
Charlie - PF
Tayshaun - SF
Ego battle between Hamilton and Gordon - SG
Stuckey - PG

+ Completely new coach and new style added to the players.

This lineup IMO is going nowhere.

Not the player he used to be, back in his prime, hell, he can cover Charlie V and BG's defensive breakdowns. Now he's just a washed up player that needs a fro for everyone to cheer for him.

I'll be glad to see him do bad. Asshole took 60mill/4years over detroits 48/4. All he cared about was the money, now look at him. Guy is a laughing stock. Cant even hit a freethrow. What a liability. I doubt he gets 20+minutes. Him and Kwame Brown will be battling it out over starting C

Piston's will be interesting to watch. I think they will be a suprise in the east and make the playoffs as the 6th or 7th seed. They have a lot of experience, and some chemistry. If they don't all let their ego's get the best of them, then just maybe this team will have a few upsets this season.

Cheers,

I don't see where the chemistry develops, much like last season.

that's right! now it's OUR turn to be one of the top-seeds. gordon & charlie v. aren't bad aquisitions. desperate times call for desperate measure. they lost billups & rasheed.
