    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.

    Sigh....

    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.

    I didn't realize that David Blain was our GM now.

    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

    If we do that 2-for-1 deal, we'd be down to 15 players, right? What if Gay becomes our starting SG?

    Knight
    Gay
    Smith
    Moose
    Drummond

    That's a big lineup. The rest is:

    Billups/Bynum/Siva
    Pope/Singler
    Middleman/Pizza Guy
    Mitchell/JJ
    Slava

    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.
