Jason Maxiell

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars would like to have power forward Jason Maxiell return next season.

But as he put it at his season-ending media availability last month, the decision is up to Maxiell, who has until June 30 to let the team know whether he will pick up his option of $5 million.

“It’s a player option so that’s totally in his hands,” Dumars said. “Obviously we’d love to have Max back.

“I think clearly this was his best year. He was in the best shape of his life. He looked great.”
