    Yah I got that, I was just saying I'm glad he didn't give up a second round pick (or anything more valuable) for Blair.

    Apparently the Nets are shopping Humphries and are trying to find something better than Ben Gordon for him.
    Sources: Bobcats more determined to trade Ben Gordon after incident with coach - Yahoo! Sports


    How about Stuckey+JJ for Humphries?

    We'd end up with a $12M bench player that would have 1 year left on his contract, but he'd be a really good bench player. Better than having Stuckey and JJ.

    He's also probably have to play center for our bench due to the Villanueva thing.

    Me too.

    I don't like the idea of having Kardashian on the team though.

    Humphries is pretty crappy but he's marginally better than Max

    Do we really want to have a team with all these guys on it?

    Kim
    Khris
    Kris
    Kyle

    If you step far back and look at it like that, it seems very far from the Bad Boys model (no offense to all the posters on here with names that start with K).

    Trade for Korver, and roll out a line up of Kim-Kyle-Kyle-Khris-Kris.

    It's not the start of a Penthouse forum letter, it's the Pistons bench!

    Yea, this is a rightful summation. This proves one lonely point: just how open this whole team is.

    If you missed Otto Porter against Syracuse....shame on you! There are some guys who are really playing themselves into some very favorable draft spots. Against Syracuse, at the Carrier Dome, in front of 35,000 fans, Georgetown beat Syracuse 57-46, and Otto Porter had 33 of the 57 points on 12-19 shooting (5-10 from three).......the whole Syracuse team only scored 13 more points than Porter. AND he pulled down 8 rebounds! I won't be surprised if Porter goes ahead of Muhammed this summer.

    Porters stock will rise when his measurements come in. 205 seems a bit light to me.

    At this point I'd take a chance on Victor.

    For some reason nbadraft has us taking Mike Muscala with the 2nd rounder. No thanks, I'd reach on Snaer/Green at that point.

    Then, we get a true SG, some trade pieces and backups. Then we can clear some of the flotsam off our roster.

    Whoever takes Carter-Williams will probably end up sad

    He's so tempting, and if we weren't so starved for scoring I'd say YES, but with a projected frontcourt of Drummond-Monroe-Singler........Viktor is not the answer, but I definitely would draft him ahead of Carter-Williams, I think this team needs CJ McCollum more than Oladipo.

    It's too bad. He looks like the type of guy who can guard three positions. He'll probably end up giving you 15-16 points, 6-7 boards, 2 steals, and a block... without getting a single play run for him. I could see us taking him if other options fell through.

    He's going to be special, but he's "A" piece not THE piece, and we are in desperate need of a guy (on the perimeter) who can be THE piece. OKC, Indy, the Clippers, or the Bulls are teams that Oladipo can turn into a dynasty. OKC will be beyond STUPID if they pass on that kid.

    Its not the scoring I am worried about, its the spacing. Give Moose and Dre space and we can pretty much start to expect 35-40 points from them night in, night out. His jumpshot isn't super pretty, so I am not really that high on him. But since I would take a oily towel over giving Stuckey minutes, I would be happy to see him in Pistons colours.
