Here’s tonight’s look around the Association..
- David Mayo and Brendan Savage of MLive Media Group give their take on whether the Pistons should re-sign free-agent-to-be Jose Calderon, who the team acquired in January from the Raptors. In 26 games in Detroit, Calderon has become a more efficient shooter but has been the same defensive liability that he’s been his entire career.
- Jason Maxiell tore his retina and will miss the final eight games of the 2012/13 season. That means that he has likely played the last game of his Pistons career as he isn’t expected to be retained this summer, writes Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.
- If things go off the rails this summer, the smartest thing for the Lakers could be to accelerate the post-Kobe Bryant rebuild while Kobe is still on the team, opines Bryan Kamenetzky of Land O’ Lakers.
