Detroit Leads The Webber Race

The Detroit Pistons are the favorites to land Chris Webber, but getting the deal done may require them to trade one of their big men, according to two league sources on Thursday. Webber, a Detroit native who starred at the University of Michigan, completed a buyout with the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday. He can commit to any team now, but he cannot sign until Monday, two business days after the buyout was completed.
