Pistons plan to keep Tayshaun Prince

Detroit Pistons president Joe Dumars confirmed today what Tayshaun Prince told the media Monday night; he isn’t going to get traded by Thursday’s NBA deadline.

“I ain’t going nowhere so what difference does it make?” the veteran forward said. “I’m not getting traded. How do I know? Because I know.

“I’ve been here all nine years, through the good times and the bad. Never once have I walked in and said I needed to go or anything like that. I’ve stuck through it.”

Prince’s contract is up at the end of the season, and Dumars said he’d like to re-sign him because of his versatility and leadership.
