Tayshaun Prince Signs New 4-Year Contract With Pistons, According To Report

After some initial doubt that he would be re-signing this season, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported early on Thursday that Tayshaun Prince re-signed with the Detroit Pistons on a four-year deal. The deal is reportedly worth $27 million over those four years, and that keeps Prince where he's played his entire career. Many expressed dis-belief that the ten-year Piston was actually going to be on the outside looking in for the first time in his career, and others felt odd, but were OK with the thought.

Detroit is rebuilding right now, and many thought there wouldn't be room to bring Prince back for a short deal, let alone one that will take him into his fourteenth season in the NBA. Outside of his appearance on Team USA in the Beijing Olympics, Prince has only worn Pistons blue in his professional career. More details on the contract should be coming out in the coming days.

Prince was on the NBA All-Defensive Second Team for 2005, '06, '07 and '08.
