The Pistons are counting Rodney Stuckey in their future plans.

But does he want to stick around?

That's a legitimate question after he was benched again for disciplinary reasons for Sunday night's 101-90 loss to the Celtics.

Coach John Kuester sat Stuckey because he refused to re-enter Friday's loss to the Chicago Bulls in the fourth quarter, according to a source with personal knowledge of the situation.

With 4 minutes left in Friday's 101-96 loss -- an emotional night for the organization because of the retirement of Dennis Rodman's No. 10 jersey -- Kuester turned to Stuckey.

And the fourth-year combo guard who will be a restricted free agent in the off-season refused to re-enter, which led to the latest chapter in a drama-filled season.

Kuester didn't shed much light on the situation after the game. Asked about his future with the Pistons in the locker room Sunday, Stuckey said: "Um, absolutely. At the end of the year, I'm going to sit down with my agent, and he's going to do what he has to do, but first and foremost, yeah, I would like to return here.

"I'm very comfortable here. In the community, I help out a lot with (a local charity), and that means a lot to me."

But he continued.
