    McDyess to remain a Piston

    AUBURN HILLS -- Pistons president Joe Dumars was in a mind to draft perimeter players with both the No. 15 and No. 27 picks in Thursday's draft -- which was much easier to do after learning earlier in the day that power forward Antonio McDyess was coming back.

    McDyess notified the Pistons that he would be picking up his $6.3 million option and return to the team next season.

    "We analyzed everything," said Andy Miller, McDyess' agent. "At the end of the day, he decided that he was comfortable with the situation in Detroit and he wanted to repay the loyalty the Pistons have shown him."

    Miller said he expects to sit down with Dumars in July to try to hammer out an extension that would keep McDyess in Detroit through the 2009-10 season.

    McDyess, who will be 33 next season, averaged eight points and six rebounds last season.

    The link is not working for some reason though, but that is all of the story anyways.

    This leaves Amir to be Tayshaun's backup.

    I agree. I do not get all the Dice bashing. You don't go completely young with all 20 year olds. Veteran leadership is good.

    So now it is official. I wonder if Joe's planning on doing anything about the center.

    He should be. I think he did not see what he liked in the free agent list (the list of centers for FA is not very good) and he probably did not see C's he liked in the draft. This means he is going to trade for one.
