I was hoping for Ben's contract to get done this summer so we can avoid the drama of him being a RFA. The more I think about it however, I think that waiting is the best thing to do. Ben's value to the Pistons is tremendous, almost immeasurable. But nobody really knows his value in the Free agency market. Ben is only valuable in certain situations on certain teams. Ben is worthless in a Clipper uniform or Hawk uniform. If you're a team with a big PF or C on a defensively oriented team, then Ben can be a great asset, outside of that he's not, all that. If all the teams that could use Ben's game have no $$$$ to spend, and the one's that do can't really use him, it makes negotiating Ben's contract a little easier.
