On a day when the Pistons signed all three 2009 draft picks, they also reached an agreement with one of their former all-stars.

Ben Wallace, the four-time defensive player of the year, agreed to terms with the Pistons on a one-year deal worth $1.3 million. Wallace is expected to sign the deal next week.

Wallace's role in Detroit, however, is expected to be a far reduced one than when he left for Chicago in 2006. He will be the fifth big man and serve as a much-needed leader on a team whose average age is 25.

He can rebound in limited playing time. That's about it.

incorrect. good move by the Pistons. They still need a lot more help in the frontcourt though.

As sad as that is to say, it may be true. I would rather see Wilcox start, but Ben would be better than Kwame.

wrong he will bring great energy and like always 110%. He will be a great mentor for CV and Wilcox on the Defensive end, plus his workouts are intense and i think if he works with daye he will put some muscle on that skinny boy.
