Prince wants to compete for a title, something that he knows cannot happen in Motown. So, he wouldn’t be opposed to a deadline deal for him to land on a contender. From the Detroit News: “Tayshaun Prince has worn only one uniform as a professional, but he said he’s open to being moved — to the right situation. ‘It would be something I’d definitely look at,’ Prince said after the Pistons’ 115-109 overtime win against Indiana on Wednesday at The Palace. ‘Who wouldn’t want be in that situation, to have an opportunity to play for another championship?’ The trade deadline is a week away, and Prince’s championship experience — along with his smarts, versatility and savvy — is coveted around the NBA. If the Pistons were to move Prince, he’d be a big addition to a team with aspirations of playing in June. Quietly, he’s playing the best and most efficient basketball of his eight-year career, even though the Pistons are struggling to stay in the playoff hunt. His 14.4-point average is the second-highest of his career.”
