If you can’t be traded, can you get your coach fired? From The Detroit News: “A day after the trade deadline passed, half the Pistons players missed Friday morning’s shootaround in what a team source called a “player protest.” Tracy McGrady, Tayshaun Prince, Richard Hamilton and Chris Wilcox did not show up to Friday’s morning shootaround. Ben Wallace also wasn’t present, but has been dealing with an ongoing family matter for the past several weeks. Advertisement Austin Daye and Rodney Stuckey showed up as shootaround ended, after the media was let in. They missed the team bus from the hotel to shootaround.”
