    Well, not really. We would be giving Dice less than $2 mil per year over the $20 million in the deal. That's 10% to upgrade CB to AI (if you consider it an upgrade, I do).

    Peanuts. Not to mention, Joe has taken money locked up over the next couple seasons, and managed to wipe the books clean at the end of this year. He's basically telling McDyess, this is it. This is your last year in Detroit to try to win a title.

    Oh I agree completely with that. I was just saying that we are getting a great deal, but we are still spending more to do it.

    I don't think he'll wear green. He hates KG. If it's executive's decision, why not come back to Motown? Why Beantown?

    No he doesn't.

    They are friends.

    They sure fought a lot on the court, especially when KG was with MIN.

    really good friends IIRC which makes sense since KG and Chauncey are as well.

    KG and Dyess don't get along.
    That factoid was repeated over and over again during last year's playoff series.

    Just because it was repeated doesnt make it a fact.

    Even the sites that used the "bad blood" angle pointed out that they were "very good friends" but then said this was supposedly brought to an end by their on court scuffle.


    Somehow I doubt that an on court tiff in the heat of the moment ended a "very good" friendship.

    I think Arnie Kander a limited but essential role on a winner and familiarity work heavily in our favor.

    ESPN reports that Dice will be put on waivers by Monday after a contract buy out was done about two hours ago. Hopefully he comes back home. Is it 30 games or 30 days?

    With Dyess's luck he will sign with Boston and this will be the year when we actually make it out of the East.

    It would be nice to have him back but it is his choice. He already stamped his approval on the club when he re-signed last year but you never know. He may want to try something different now.

    If Dyess does not come back then perhaps Walter Sharpe will be a pleasent surprise. Do we have any other big guys in the D-league? I think that one we drafted is playing oversees.

    I honestly think this is all a ruse intended to guard against any scrutiny from the league office like Dallas would have faced had they included Stackhouse in the J. Kidd deal after Jerry opened his big mouth. :nod:

    I feel that there was a little nudging and winking going on the whole time between Joe, Rex, and Andy. It wouldn't even surprise me if Chauncey was one of the guys Antonio was referring to when he was talking about the attitude that some of the players had that he was sick and tired of.

    Who all trashed Chauncey in their exit interview last summer?

    We will never know for certain.

    Cloud - What you are saying is that there could be a backroom deal where they agreed to cut Dyess and Dyess already agreed to come back here and this was all part of the trade off the radar? Interesting, I had not thought of that. Could be the case I don't know.

    I have not heard the interview but you could tell how frusterated Dyess was during the playoffs at times.

    It's pretty obvious Dice wanted a change made to the core so this is not completely off base. If this is all a ruse, then it's a pretty damn good one b/c i couldn't tell you what's going to happen. The only thing that makes me nervous is i haven't heard Dice say a word.

    This may be a good thing as I'm pretty sure he's not allowed to go around talking about a deal coming back to Detroit. If he were talking it would probably be about another team.

    I want Dice to have a ring... He is the only member of THE TEAM that did not get one.

    I hope that the team's poor play and the difficult AI transition doesn't scare Dyess away from signing with us. Pretty sure he doesn't want to go ring chasing, but his feelings may change if he thinks this team doesn't have a real chance.
