In a move that will surprise little, the Pistons have agreed to terms with free agents Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva.
Gordon is expected to receive a five-year deal worth approx. $55 million and is likely to start in the backcourt alongside point guard Rodney Stuckey. Villanueva, who reportedly will receive a five-year, $40 million contract, is slated to start at power forward.
The signing of Gordon will most likely mean the end of Rip Hamilton, who could be shopped for a veteran center such as Tyson Chandler of the New Orleans Hornets, or one of either Chris Kaman or Marcus Camby of the L.A. Clippers.
