Pistons Shopping Jodie Meeks

The Pistons are continuing to shop Jodie Meeks in an attempt to find him a new team, sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (Twitter link). Keith Langlois of NBA.com reported last month that odds were 50-50 whether the team was going to keep the shooting guard on the roster.

Adding Meeks was one of Stan Van Gundy’s first moves as the team’s president of basketball operations during the 2014 offseason, but the signing just hasn’t worked out. The Kentucky product has missed 101 regular season games due to various injuries since coming to Detroit.

In the 63 games that Meeks was able to play, he averaged 10.9 points and 0.9 steals per game while shooting 35.3% from downtown. Meeks’ availability on the trade market is likely due to a combination of his lack of durability, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope‘s emergence as a legitimate two-way player, and Van Gundy’s propensity to play shorter rotations. The 28-year-old has one season and $6.54MM left on his contract.

If he can stay healthy, he would fit a bunch of teams b/c of his shooting

Would the Pistons take Carl Landry? Contracts are almost identical, final year 6.2m / 6.5m

Call him for a reason. No defense. Hated him on the Lakers

Akin to the Cavs shopping James Jones or Mo Williams. The return is like a potential 2nd round pick in 2030.
