NBA 2010-11 Season Likely to End with Same Results for the Pistons

The Pistons had by far one of the worst seasons in franchise history having one of the worst records in the NBA going 27-55.

With injuries to Will Bynum, Ben Gordon, Charlie Villanueva, Chucky Atkins, and Rip Hamilton, the Pistons were unlikely to go even a quarter of the season with a full squad come game time.

So how can the Pistons make a change to become a better team next season and actually be a playoff contender? Well, unfortunately there isn't much they can do.

The Pistons have five players being paid over $5 million. Rip Hamilton: $12.5 million, Tayshaun Prince: $11.15 million, Ben Gordon: $10.8 million, Charlie Villanueva: $7.02 million, and Jason Maxiell: $5.0 million.

Then you have Rodney Stuckey, Austin Daye, Jonas Jerebko, and DaJuan Summers whose salaries add up to about $6.09 million.

Then you have the first-round draft pick, Chris Wilcox's possible $3 million player option deal, and open roster spots.

The cap this season will most likely be right around $56.1 million and the Pistons are sitting at around $55.77 to $58.3 million which gives them pretty much no room to work with in cap space.
