BTW, if I was Joe, I'd let JMax walk and make a move for David Lee.
Amir is making $3.7M. I think the 3 year $15M offer is a good one and Jmax is silly to turn it down.
Thats alot of good players.
If we could get Okur back...that will be cool. David Lee will be amazing here too, because he's a hard worker. Leon Powe will be another great pick-up.
Is Memo worth more or less now? Relative to his last deal of course.
It is extremely rare in NBA that market happens to be buyer's market...Wonder what Baby Eater and his agent hope to gain...
I still think we can get Victor even if he is a leestricted free agent.
Unfortunatly this is the business side of the game. Not to say that something cannot get done but we are going to have to also re-sign Stucky, Amir, AA in the near future.
Its going to be interesting because Maxiel is so far heading into a season where he is not going to play a whole lot. We will just have to see. Maxiel controls his own destiny here. If he is able to force his way into the lineup and does not have that mid-season drop off like he had then he can become the priority this summer.
Maybe Katz is working some Euro deals, but I don't see Jmax getting more than $5M there either.
Here's Maxiell's quote on the matter:
This makes it seem like it's his agent's idea in an attempt to increase the offer as opposed to a secretly disgruntled Maxiell who is upset about not starting.

I guess Maxiell thinks he can get more elsewhere....oh well. Cya Max.
Anyone here think Max maybe included in any mid-season trade now?
I think we would want his services. I wouldn't rule out a trade of anyone though.
Probably. His expiring contract and Sheed's are going to be hot items.
Maxiell is only getting paid $1.877M this year (vs. $13.680M for Sheed). He's worth far more as a player than as an expiring contract because he's underpaid right now.
TaS, you actually make an unintended point. While Max's expiring deal is valuable, the fact that it is for so little, makes it less valuable.
2 mil here, almost 16 mil there ... I mentioned both Max and Sheed for a reason. I'm sure there's at least one team looking to dump salaries/contracts.
Thats what I was just thinking.
It's almost a negative since the team that gets him knows they are essentially taking more salary back than they give up in the long run if they plan on keeping him.
Actually, you took it one step further. Very interesting.
I'm guessing that any team that trades for him isn't planning on keeping him or Sheed. They just want to dump as much contract $ as they can.
A one on one deal involving Max probably won't happen ... the Pistons don't need a 1.8m player in return.
