Pistons agree to deals with Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva

The Detroit Pistons are clearly not going to sit on their hands and watch as the Magic and Cavs get better in the Eastern Conference. The team has come to agreements with Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva on multi-year deals, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.com.

Ben Gordon's contract is reportedly a five-year, $55 million deal while Villanueva's pact is also for five years at $35 million. The deals can't become official until July 8th.

The Pistons are certainly making a lot of noise in the past few days. Yesterday head coach Michael Curry was fired after only one season. Now with Gordon and Villanueva in the fold, the team can let Rasheed Wallace walk and perhaps trade Rip Hamilton.
