there's no rumors in this rumors thread
Word on the street is that blue is about to start another thread.
I think the chances are very slime, and I have no sources to back it up.... but I heard from a friends friends aunts twin sister's little brother that Miami is going to trade James for CV and Stuckey.
I hear there is a Big shot coming to Detroit.
Billups is BAAAACK!!!!!! I DIDN'T WAKE UP IN THE MORNING THIS HAPPY SINCE... SINCE.. I DON'T KNOW SINCE WHEN BUT O WOKE UP WITH A BIG HUGE SMILE IN MY FACE!!!!
THANK YOU BILLUPS, THANK YOU JOE D, GORES, WHOEVER MAKE THIS HAPPEND!
sorry, I'm very excited!!! Mo cheeks + Mr Big Shot coaching Knight!!
I can't wait for this season to get here! This is going to be an exciting year, I can feel it!
I wouldn't do it if I was Joe D.

Pistons, per source, won't use amnesty, saving the likes of Charlie Villanueva. Likely reason--new team salary minimums (90% of cap/$52.8M).
JD is rolling at the moment - he needs to somehow turn Stuckey and BoT into a 2014 first round pick now. With a lottery team preferably.
He can't. Minimum salary.
But they won't be coming back after next year :D
I didn't realize that David Blain was our GM now.
That's extremely impossible.
Also a salary cap issue - we'd need to take back nearly as much salary to make it work.
How much would we need to take back? Maybe we could find a player who is massively overpaid on an expiring.... wait, that's BoT isn't it :E
That's the problem.
That Stuck and CV for Gay rumor just won't die: Raptors Rumors: Rudy Gay Trade An Option As Toronto Considers Pistons Deal For Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva, Marcus Camby Flipped To Lakers, Clippers or Thunder? : US : Sports World Report
If we do that 2-for-1 deal, we'd be down to 15 players, right? What if Gay becomes our starting SG?
That's a big lineup. The rest is:
Although with Gay coming on, most likely the starting lineup would be Knight/Billups/Gay/Smith/Moose
and most likely second unit would be Bynum/Pope/Middleton/Mitchell/Drummond. JJ, Pizza Guy, Siva and Slava keeping the bench warm.
NO NO NO NO NO!!!! This would mess up all my plans to bring LaLa Carmelo Anthony to Detroit!!! C'mon Joe, STAY FOCUSED!!!!
Have you communicated your plan to Joe?
******* hangs head in shame as I realize I'm all talk ***********
