Detroit Pistons Free Agent Tayshaun Prince Receiving Interest From Los Angeles Clippers

The Detroit Pistons have had Tayshaun Prince on the roster since drafting him in 2002, but the lanky forward became a free agent after his five-year extension came to a close a the end of last season. Prince could re-sign with Detroit if he's so inclined, but he's apparently receiving interest from the Los Angeles Clippers as well.

Prince is expected to be courted by several teams before they officially are allowed to sign players on Dec. 9, but the Clippers are the first to be reported -- as per the Los Angeles Times:

The Clippers have reached out to free agent Tayshaun Prince to gauge his interest in playing for them this season, a source said Wednesday afternoon. Prince also is a Los Angeles native, having attended Dominguez High School.

Prince made over $11 million last season for the Pistons, averaging 14.1 points on 47 percent shooting while providing his usual solid defense. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Pistons try to keep him in their plans but, Austin Daye is waiting in the wings if they're unable to foot Prince's bill.
