Pistons and Jason Collins

UPDATE: As noted below, the Pistons have been in contact with free-agent big man Jason Collins, but Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News cited two sources who told him that the Pistons aren't seriously considering adding the veteran.

Apparently, they are looking for some younger options -- Collins is 34 -- to back up the Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond in the frontcourt. Collins could help give their young roster some more leadership, but he likely would have a tough time even cracking the rotation at this stage of his career.
