Since Tuesday at 12:01 am EST the faces of many NBA teams have been changed, and in at least one case the very foundation of the team has undergone a free agent upgrade. To be sure the 2009 NBA free agent season got off to a very fast start.
Of course the biggest news is the Detroit Pistons who went out and signed Guard Ben Gordon from Chicago for 5 years and up to 58 million dollars, and Power Forward Charlie Villanueva for Milwaukee for 5 years and a reported 37 million dollars. Both deal as reported by NBA.com
This is significant since these are not the kind of players the Pistons have generally sought out. This was a team constructed around a philosophy of team defense first. Since neither one of these players could ever be confused with as a strong defender we seem to have a change of philosophy for the Pistons.
