Dennis Rodman may be best known for his time as a Chicago Bull and for his antics off the court. But he’s now being recognized for his time as a Detroit Piston.
The Pistons plan to retire Rodman’s No. 10 during a halftime ceremony later this season.
Rodman, the eccentric rebounding specialist who helped the Pistons win NBA titles in 1989 and 1990, will be honored April 1 when the Pistons host the Chicago Bulls, a team Rodman won three championships with from 1996-98.
Detroit rookie Greg Monroe currently wears No. 10 and will be allowed to keep doing so.
Rodman averaged 8.8 points and 11.5 rebounds in 549 games as a Piston. He was the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1990 and 1991.
