Pistons Acquire Arroyo

It's official! The Pistons have acquired Carlos Arroyo from the Utah Jazz. Utah will receive a future first round draft pick, and Elden Campbell.

Arroyo is averaging 8.2 points per game this season and has been in the dog house with Jerry Sloan for weeks. Arroyo had a break out season last year with the Jazz, and could return to the same form under new leadership.

Elden Campbell is expected to be waived, and could end up back with the Pistons once he clears waivers. Campbell's only major role this season has been against Shaq.

The Pistons had openly been looking for another guard to add to Lindsey Hunter. Last year's Hunter and James combination proved vital in Detroit's Championship run.

"We're excited to add him to our team, because we think Carlos adds great flexibility to our backcourt," Dumars said.

Look for Arroyo to join the Pistons very soon.
