With the NBA trade deadline less than a month away, none of the Detroit Pistons might be more attractive than guard Rodney Stuckey. Especially if he continues to produce the way he has in the last week. After battling a sore shoulder for more than a month, Stuckey has scored at least 20 points in his last three games and is averaging 14.2 for the season, second-best among all NBA reserves this season. Stuckey's ability to come off the bench and provide instant offense as well as his expiring contract of $8.5 million could be too much to pass up down the stretch for a contender that needs more scoring or a team that wants to clear some cap space via trade. And if the Pistons decide Stuckey isn't part of their future plans, they could deal him and receive something in return rather than letting him walk at the end of his seventh season in Detroit.
