Default Ben Gordon, Charlie Villanueva have many years left

Gordon, 28, was drafted third overall by the Bulls in 2004 and has three years left on a $55 million contract. Villanueva, 27, was drafted seventh overall by the Raptors in 2005 and has three years left on a $40 million contract. These aren't small names or small deals.

The Pistons haven't yet used their amnesty clause to rid themselves of a cumbersome contract. That's not a message to anyone in particular, but it's clear: Time to ante up, fellas.

"We just need Ben Gordon to get back to being Ben Gordon," Frank said as the Pistons prepared for their exhibition opener tonight. "He's had a tremendous attitude. He's a guy who obviously can open up a game with his scoring. He can go on great runs, and you just never know when it's coming. He hasn't been able to do it here so far, but we fully expect him to get back to being who he is."

I wish we never signed either of those guys

I like ball movement, these guys shoot first, shoot second, shoot third. Makes for a real stale offense sometimes, especially when they think they are the "guys" on the team...

This is their first season all over again. If they can't perform now they never will. Rip is gone, Ben Gordon should be the best player on the team now. He better act like it.
