Detroit Pistons aren't that interested in Jason Collins.

It was reported yesterday Detroit may be interested in Jason Collins. The script has dramatically changed in 24 hours.

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News reports the Pistons aren’t seriously considering the gay athlete.

But two sources with knowledge of the Pistons’ plans told The News that Collins is not being seriously considered.

The Pistons are looking at several potential bigs to back up Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, and they prefer one younger than Collins, 34, who is near the end of his career.

People will see this as a bias against Collins because he’s gay, but in reality Collins is a 34-year old big man who only averages 3.6 points a game for his career.

Can we just be honest and admit that Jason Collins isn’t very good?
