The five biggest losers of NBA Free Agency 2013
4) Detroit Pistons
Notable additions: Josh Smith, Brandon Jennings
Notable losses: Brandon Knight
Ever since the trade that brought Allen Iverson to Detroit, the Pistons has been rooted to mediocrity. Gone are the days when the Eastern Conference finals were just a formality. The Pistons with Joe Dumars at its head have been making one questionable decision after another. From handing out lavish deals to Charlie Villenueva and Ben Gordon, to handing the reigns of the franchise to Rodney Stuckey, it has been a comedy of mistakes.
This year they brought Josh Smith to a 4year/$56million deal. It’s one thing to question what merited the forward such huge amounts and then there is the question about the development of the two promising bigs in Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe. If that wasn’t enough, they went out and brought the over-rated Brandon Jennings to the motor city.
