The Detroit Pistons, who are struggling after spending most of the past decade as a contender, came into this year's trade season as a potential player. But with less than five hours to go before the deadline, a Pistons source told ESPN.com that the chances the Pistons make a deal look slim.
"There's a less than 10 percent chance," the source said. "There's just no deal that makes sense for us right now."
The Pistons had been hoping to use either Richard Hamilton or Tayshaun Prince to land a frontcourt player -- they especially had interest in Jazz forward Carlos Boozer. But with Prince's injuries and the Jazz playing terrific basketball during the past month, any interest Utah had in a deal has dried up.
