If Ben is airing his gripes in the media, I am sorely dissappointed in him. I didn't have Ben pegged as an attention seeking, arrogant disgruntled employee. I really thought he was a pretty humble low-key guy. I guess there is a ring of truth in the say "Success Spoils Good Guys and Make the Humble Sell Thier Souls". Bottom line the Pistons will have to come up with another 2-4 million dollars to retain him. Davison may not answer the bell. It has always appeared to me that Davison doesn't like business aired to the media. Ben may have shot himself in the foot with this one. I still would like to keep Ben, but for how much? Really don't want to break the bank and cripple the team in doing so. It looks as though there are some teams calling for Ben services. New York, please no Eddy Curry. We have to get a big man out of this deal, maybe kill three birds with one stone, Center, SF & point. Cleveland, Drew Gooden, the wild child (can't remeber his name?, with the wild hair), Larry Hughes (too injury prone), Ilgauskas?. The Wizards, I will take the big boy Haywood, Jared Jeffries, Donnell Taylor, Antwan Jamison, Antonio Daniels or Caron. I think a combo of two or three of these guys and the Wiz becomes our greatest trade partner.
