Pistons Add Firepower
The Pistons also added some muscle in the form of Charlie Villanueva. He is an inside scoring presence as well as a decent rebounder. He averaged 16.2 points in 26.9 minutes per game. He added 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.7 blocks, and 0.6 steals. He can stretch defenses out by knocking down the three (1.1 per game at 34.5%).
The deals for the former UConn stars won’t be official until July 8th. Gordon’s is for five years at $55-60 million and Villanueva’s is for five years at $40 million. Perhaps the best aspect for the Pistons is they are getting two players from division rivals.
With Iverson and Rasheed Wallace gone, nobody should take too much of a fantasy hit with this signing. With Gordon gone, John Salmons’ fantasy value increases. In Milwaukee, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute’s fantasy value increases.
