The best big man on this list is Rasheed Wallace.
That is a bad omen for Pistons fans.
I'd like to see them get Birdman, Varejao, Szczerbiak, Ben Gordon and Von Wafer.
I guess trade is the way then. But one restricted free agent I would love Joe to presue is Marvin Williams.
Marvin > Prince
I love this kid's upside.
What about Andre Miller to fill the PG position with an actual PG?
I'd rather have Odom.
I just have a bad feeling that we still don't have a real center. Kwame Brown is a nice backup but behind who??? There is no one in the draft and no one on this free agent list.
Yea we definitely need a real center.
Joe is going to work his Magic
Upside = 4 years of arguing on PF.com about why a guy isn't doing more of this or less of that...
Please...no more guys with upside. We need to make efforts to bring in guys with Actualside.
Yes, but a strong case could be made that Williams is already a better player than Prince. And he's only 22... plenty of room for his game to continue to improve. I see him as being the best option out there at small forward, but perhaps there are others.

What an exciting and talented list of players to go after!
I would be open to the idea of the Birdman. Andre Miller running the point would be nice too, although he's getting on, and I've always thought of him as Chauncey Billups type.
I would like to be able to eat while I watch Piston games. Then again it would be a good way to loose weight.
As much as we all hate him, how about at the right price if he opts out, Sideshow Bob? He'd be another good post defender and it wouldn't hurt to have those flops go our way.
An energy player that plays with passion like Birdman or Sideshow is just what this team needs. Someone that could hype everyone up so they can play with energy and get each other cheering for one another. Seeing last years bench cheering was aweful and it translated to the court unfortunately.
I've always liked him. I think he would become an instant fan favorite here.
I am ok with Sideshow, the last energy player we had like that was the Junkyard dog and Rodman...
