The Pistons are shopping everybody:
Stan Van Gundy has made a splash in both years as Pistons coach, and has been quite vocal this year about moving players. Van Gundy says everyone is available for the right price.
ESPN reported last week that the Pistons were quietly shopping Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson. Other reports say the Pistons discussed a trade with Orlando for Jackson, and the Kings for Andre Drummond.
There's also some mysterious tweets between Drummond and Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas, which are fueling rumors of a trade to Boston.

The Pistons have also been mentioned as possible suitors for Lakers point guard Lou Williams, who is averaging 18.6 points per game, and shooting 38.6 percent from the three point line.
ESPN also reporting that a three-way trade that sends Reggie Jackson to the Knicks, Derrick Rose to the Wolves and Ricky Rubio to the Pistons has been floated.
Carmelo Anthony trade appears unlikely but Knicks could move Rose:
According to reports, the Knicks star won't be heading anywhere this season, despite the Phil Jackson drama. Anthony hasn't been willing to waive his no-trade clause.
