Pistons trade rumors: Rodney Stuckey, Jonas Jerebko interest others

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons likely won't make a major move before the trade deadline, but they could be interested in smaller deals involving Rodney Stuckey and Jonas Jerebko, among others.

While it's likely the Detroit Pistons stand pat having already been a part of the biggest trade of the year, there's still a chance general manager Joe Dumars could find a way to open up a little bit of cap space. Rodney Stuckey and Jonas Jerebko are the two names that most interest other teams, according to the Detroit Free Press' Vince Ellis.

Stuckey is making $8.5 million this year and the same next, but he might be expendable with second-year pro Brandon Knight on the roster. Meanwhile, Jerebko has been stuck on the bench, and he's locked in for a $4.5 million deal through next season with a player option coming in 2014-15.

Backup point guard Will Bynum has an expiring deal that Ellis says could be moved as well.

Before the All-Star break, HoopsWorld.com reported that Charlie Villanuava's contract that is in the same neighborhood as Stuckey's could also be on the market. Any movement from Dumars and Co. could give Detroit an expiring contract of a player they would like to re-sign in free agency, namely the Charlotte Bobcats' Gerald Henderson.

The Pistons have also been linked to bigger names such as Josh Smith, J.J. Redick and Brandon Jennings, though Ellis reports that such monumental moves are unlikely.
