Now the waiting begins for Tayshaun Prince. After 10 seasons with the Pistons concluded Wednesday night with a 104-100 victory over the 76ers, Prince will become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career this summer, or whenever the NBA's labor situation is resolved. And Prince, who scored 14 points Wednesday, admitted he had mixed feelings after what will likely be his Pistons swan song. "Whatever happens, happens," Prince said. "I'm excited at the same time to see what the options are. But at the same time I'm nervous because of the lockout and things like that because you don't know what's going to happen. "I'm in the position where I don't want to have no layoffs because there's going to be a time when I'm 37, 38, 39 and I'm done." The night marked the end of an era. The game likely was the final one of the Davidson family's stewardship that began in 1974. And there's also a chance it could be the final game in the Pistons' red, white and blue for 2004 heroes Ben Wallace, Rip Hamilton and Prince, who exchanged jerseys with Hamilton after the game. Wallace, with one more year left on the two-year deal, is considering retirement.
Last hurrah for Pistons' Rip Hamilton, Ben Wallace, Tayshaun Prince?
