NBA free agency officially began at 12:00 AM midnight, and the LeBron James sweepstakes is underway.

While the Detroit Pistons are not expected to make a run at any of the superstar free agents (James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh), there are plenty of available players that can help Stan Van Gundy right away.

So away with the rumors!

Isaiah Thomas, no relation to Pistons great Isiah Thomas, averaged about 20 PPG and 6 APG with the Sacramento Kings last season. Thomas is a restricted free agent, meaning the Pistons and Kings might think about a sign and trade.

The sign and trade could include Pistons big man Greg Monroe, also a restricted free agent.

Speaking of Greg Monroe, the Pistons extended him a $5.5 million offer sheet on Monday. Reports are that the Pistons would likely match just about any offer made for Monroe, but there is a possibility he, too, is involved in a sign and trade.

Stein also reported that the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers are also intrigued by Monroe. The  Magic do not seem to be a likely landing spot, because they won't be willing to part with Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon or Elfrid Payton. Take a look at the Magic roster, and they don't have much else.

And one more name for Detroit Pistons fans. It seems as if they are interested in free agent wing Trevor Ariza. The Washington Wizards have made it known they want Ariza back, and there are plenty of other teams interested.

Ariza averaged about 14 PPG and 6 RPG for the Wizards, and shot a career-high 40.7% from 3-point range.

Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News reported that Anthony Morrow will visit the Pistons. Morrow shot 45.1% from behind the 3-point line last season, good for third in the NBA behind Kyle Korver and Mike Miller.


Uhhh ... what?!
