1986 – Happy 27th birthday to Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey who just finished his seventh NBA season. For each of the last six years, he has played more than 80 percent of the team’s games. However, his playing time declined again in 2013-14. Since the 2010-11 season, Stuckey’s minutes have decreased every year.
Unfortunately, the Pistons missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season. After playing in 21 postseason games combined in his rookie and sophomore years, Stuckey has been “stuck” on lottery teams. Stuckey played through a sore shoulder midway through the season, but he may not want to go through any more soreness of losing in 2014-15. He is an unrestricted free agent.
