Cavs fans can kiss their hopes of bringing Charlie Villanueva to Cleveland goodbye. After Carlos Boozer decided to return to the Jazz the Pistons decided to pursue Villanueva and it looks like they got their man. He will make around a $1.5 million more than he could get if he signed with the Cavs.
DETROIT (AP) -A person with the knowledge of the negotiations says the Detroit Pistons have agreed in principle to contracts with free agents Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday night on the condition of anonymity because NBA rules prohibit teams from announcing free agent signings until next week.
Gordon, the third pick in the 2004 draft by the Chicago Bulls, agreed to a 5-year deal for at least $50 million.
Villanueva agreed to a five-year deal. His contract is worth at least $35 million.
