One of the more intriguing potential pairings from early on in the free agency period comes from the Motor City. It was being reported that the Detroit Pistons had initial talks and interest with free agent Josh Smith in a move that was immediately met with skepticism on social media, but it looks like the two sides could be working on finding a common ground for a potential deal.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
After Josh Smith’s meeting w/ Detroit GM Joe Dumars, source close to Smith tells Y!: “Good, productive talks. Intriguing to say the least.”

Smith would be a very odd option for the Pistons and the move could be a real disaster for the team if they look to play him at the two guard.
People will be watching this situation closely to see if the two sides make any process. If they do, all eyes will be on Detroit to watch the train wreck that would be sure to take place next season.
