Thread: Pistons news, y'all

  1. #11
    we need to go out and buy a couple of 1st rounders! lakers are willing to move theirs, the suns are willing to trade one of theirs and I'm hearing the bulls are too- among others. and these are teams not just willing to package them but to trade them- for cash or future considerations. why? because they're trying to shed guaranteed contracts (particularly Chicago) so they can pursue FAs. this is a great opportunity to either buy a pick for cash!

    this is a deep enough draft where I think it's a great move even if it costs a future #1 (with better protection than joe had!) as well as cash.

    we should be trying really hard to trade josh smith for a nice pick but if not, then buy into the 1st round and target someone like stauskas. the kid is a baller and with his shooting, smarts, and high basketball IQ, he would be a great complimentary player to a guy like Drummond.

    The #Pistons announce assistant general manager George David has resigned. David spent 17 years in the Pistons' organization.

    Jodie meeks soon to be a piston? he's not a top tier FA, obviously, but he's a very solid player and brings the type of shooting we need. has pretty nice athleticism too. I think we got him for a good price too and didn't wildly overpay like we usually do in FA.

    put him with a more developed Drummond and that'll help space the defense out more. good signing!

    You're the first person I've seen on twitter/tv to say we didn't overpay.

    I didn't say we didn't overpay. I said we didn't WILDLY overpay. yes his pricetag got a bit inflated given the destination and the fact that FAs get overpaid, period. but it's not the type of wild overpaying that comes back to haunt a franchise IMO. he's a good player and will do well. it's not like we're building the franchise around him nor does his contract reflect that. but he's one of those sleepers FAs that I think people will look back and see it as a good signing.

    he was not going to come cheap given the demand for shooters and his upside. it's not a bad deal IMO.

    Smiff to the Kings trade talks revived.

    So the Kings would have Gay Cousins and Smith for their big 3.

    Do it. Than release Terry. Let him go to the Mavs. Who gives a shit. I think we'd be able to eat 6 mil next year no probs.

    edit...if we dont' want his dumb ass.
