    Mikael Pietrus who was born in France in 1985, and was selected in the first round by the Golden State Warriors has been languishing in the dog house of coach Don Nelson. Nelson, has not appreciated Pietrus play because apparently Mikael has not been able to blend in with the Warriors up-tempo system. Chris Mullin the Warriors General Manager has been actively shopping Pietrus and his attractive trade exemption before the deadline, and a few Bay Area, California news source have reported that apparently Mullin and Piston's GM Joe Dumars have agreed to a trade on February 15, newl acquired Piston Walter Hermann and some cash consideration or a still undisclosed player for Mikael Pietrus. Pietrus looks considerably Tayshaun Price, and can solidly back up the 2-3 position with his experience. Mikael is an incredible defender, with great athleticism and sneakiness. Like Hermann he can shoot the three as evidence with his accuary with his 3 year tenure with the Warriors. Pietrus' game will definetly flourish under the Pistons' methodical and deliberate, defensive system (just like the French National team); rather than the Warriors gung-ho style. Hermann meanwhile will like how the Warriors run their offense and finally get some minutes. Its a fair deal. Pietrus 6'7 and long wingspan and quickness will give the Pistons immediate help, especially against Pierce, Allen and Dwayne.

    I believe his name is spelled Mickael Pietrus, with a "C"

    Rumors - Mickael Pietrus - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

    i heard

    Its all over their sports radio KNBR68. Not on the press though, unless you subscribe to a premium account. Nice trade for the Pistons though. He is a better alternative than Artest. Plus he's got more bball IQ than Hermann.

    Prince
    1,487 minutes / 942 Sprocket points
    6.3 per ten minutes

    Hayes
    718 minutes / 361 Sprocket points
    5.0 per ten minutes

    Herrmann (including Charlotte)
    248 minutes / 134 Sprocket points
    5.4 per ten minutes

    Pietrus
    641 minutes / 356 Sprocket points
    5.6 per ten minutes


    Both Herrmann and Pietrus are upgrades over Hayes right now overall. Hayes shoots slightly better than Pietrus, but is less involved in rebounding, assists, steals, blocks, etc.


    It seems the Pistons want a backup SF who provides scoring punch off the bench. For that, and only that, Hayes is a better choice.

    FGAs per ten minutes and points per ten minutes...

    Prince - 3.4 / 3.9
    Hayes - 3.8 / 4.0
    Herrmann - 3.4 / 3.5
    Pietrus - 2.9 / 3.5

    Still not exactly sure why I wouldn't rather have Herrmann.

    because Pietrus is the defensive ace Hermann is not. Because Pietrus is the next Tayshaun Price we dont have. And because Hermann has lost the confidence of Flip because he thrives in a crazy offense.

    haha bills.

    i haven't seen much of pietrus play, but from what i hear he can knock down the 3 and is also a good defender, vs. hayes who can knock down the 3 and is an average defender. i'm not sure if he's an upgrade over herrmann, but it sounds like he fits into our system.

    dunno...

    I guess that could depend on whether you like pony tails on boys rather than girls.

    I'm not sure I'd like to trade Walter Herrmann of the Detroit Pistons for Mickael Pietrus of the Golden State Warriors. I'd rather trade Flip Murray of the Flip Saunders doghouse because Walter Herrmann of the Detroit Pistons can also play the Power Forward position of the Detroit Pistons substitution rotation.

    As far as trading Cash of the Detroit Pistons, I have no problem with that.

    It seems like Herrmann has a pretty good attitude, given his benched status. Hayes is getting most of the minutes anyways, so we should stand pat with our expiring, yet happy, Fabio. By the way, did anyone else notice Sheed screaming "white boy" when Herrmann hit that 3 yesterday?

    Re: i heard

    I haven't seen too much of Herrmann, but this would imply Herrmann's one of the dumbest guys you'll ever see. (I don't have trouble believing that, but Pietrus... he's a rich man's Mo Evans, with a little bit of slashing ability)

    eFG% this season:

    Evans- .541
    Petrius- .515
    Hayes- .493
    Fabio- .400

    I didn't realize Evans was shooting so well this year. That's pretty good.

    Maybe "The WB" would give him more street cred.
