The Pistons Bring Back Rodney Stuckey December 17, 2011 18:04
The Detroit Pistons have announced that Rodney Stuckey is returning to play for them this season. The announcement was made on Saturday by The Detroit News, and it is reported that Stuckey's new deal is worth $25 million over three years.
Over his four years with the Pistons, Stuckey has averaged 13.6 points and 4.5 assists, with a team high of 15.5 points in the 2010/11 season.
The Pistons came out of last season 30-52 and have been hoping that the new coach, Lawrence Frank, can help the Pistons seriously improve in what is now going to be a much shorter season than normal.
Little else has altered for the Pistons so far, heading into the 2011/12 season, other than the departure of Richard Hamilton earlier this month, as he made his way over to the Chicago Bulls.
Stuckey missed the Detroit exhibition game last Friday against Cleveland, but is said to have his place firmly sealed in this seasons Pistons team.
