    Great News!!!

    I don't even know who won the salary issue between them. I am just glad he will be here for along while.

    I believe it will help keep Ben, also, because Tay didn't hold out for one of those bank-breaking amounts.

    Good News

    Very glad to hear it. Hope it was closer to $45m than $50m. My guess is they split the difference.

    That would be something like:
    7.75
    8.52
    9.30
    10.07
    10.85

    That seems more than fair for both sides.

    Interesting thing is we could have signed Tay to a 6 year deal... did he want to keep his options open in case he started to put up some big numbers?

    Prince signs

    Way to go. It had to be done. We need to keep the core of this team together.

    Keep this team together!

    And we can call it the Piston era. Spur fans might object but who cares. Want to see Tay at the next level.

    Collective sigh of relief... :yawn:

    so tay's agent waited out all this time just to get an extra $400k a year??

    reminds me of that seinfeld episode... "so you held out for less money?"

    well maybe not quite that extreme. :ohwell:

    Yup he's back

    He's signed around 47-48 Million.

    I don't know how you're gonna manage our cap Joe but just do your thing.....:nod:

    I think his final price is not too bad. A lot of people were saying that he's worth less but the price tag wasn't ball busting huge compared to the original offer.

    Very reasonable given the market for Tay next summer. Mark Stein agreed with many here that a "re-do" of that draft would put Tay third, and that this kind of money fits both his on the floor production and where he should have been selected in hindsight.

    Just as important, this continues the trend of players signing for less in Detroit than they could get elsewhere. This environment of player loyalty and championship level contention puts Joe in a very good position to manage the cap going forward.

    The deathstar is nearly complete...and Alderon is about to get it's arse kicked...
