Charlie Villanueva could be amnestied this offseason if the Pistons make a move in free agency.
Villanueva is scheduled to make $8 million in 12-13 and has a player option for $8.5 million during the 13-14 season.
“I would like to stay here,” Villanueva said. “I love it here, I love it here. At the same time, I'm a realist.”
Ben Gordon is another amnesty candidate, making $12 million for 12-13 and more than $13 million for 13-14 on a player option.
“Anything's possible, anything's possible,” said Gordon. “That's always in the back of your mind. But until you're told something, until you hear something, you just always assume you'll be here.”
Both Gordon and Villanueva were signed in the 2009 offseason.
