Rodney Stuckey, Pistons Struggling To Agree To Terms On Multi-Year Deal, According To Report

The Detroit Pistons have reportedly made resolving Rodney Stuckey's contract situation one of their top priorities, but there appears to be little progress, according to ESPN. Their report states that the team and Stuckey are struggling to come to an agreement on a long-term contract. The deal reportedly pays Stuckey $40 million to $45 million over a five-year period, and Stuckey's representatives are seeking a bigger deal. 

According to the report, Stuckey's representatives have been talking with other teams over the "past few days" in regards to a potential sign-and-trade. There were reports of a potential sign-and-trade deal being discussed earlier in the week, but this report states that the team wouldn't agree to it.

If nothing can be done regarding a long-term deal or even a sign and trade, Stuckey could accept the one-year, $3.87 million qualifyingoffer from the team, and play on it, becoming a free agent next season and forcing the Pistons to continue without him, while not receiving any compensation.
