SUNS DEAL WEST TO PISTONS

SHARE SUNS DEAL WEST TO PISTONS

Last year, the Detroit Pistons couldn't find a center they were happy with. Now they have plenty to choose from.

The Pistons obtained Mark West from the Phoenix Suns on Monday for two second-round draft picks - one in 1996 and one in 1999.Detroit already has acquired Bill Curley and Eric Leckner in the offseason to go along with Greg "Cadillac" Anderson, who played center last season after Bill Laimbeer retired and Olden Polynice was traded.

The trade of West, who will make $2 million this season, also clears the way for Phoenix to try to sign free agent Danny Manning.
