The Detroit Pistons – the Celtics number one threat in the Eastern conference – have signed Kwame Brown to a 2-year, $8 million deal. The good folks at Hoopsworld think this is a bargain for the Pistons. But when you compare this signing to the 2-year, $3 million deal the Celtics gave Patrick O’Bryant, you realize the Pistons are pissing away $5 million. I guess when you are a former #1 pick, teams will throw money at you with the hopes of eventually seeing that “potential.”
In other news, the Clippers have signed Ricky Davis and the Knicks have traded Renaldo Balkman to the Nuggets.
