    Detroit News reports that Stuckey and Afflalo are signed. Don't know how to do proper links.

    Just copy it from your browser's address bar and paste into the posting window where you are writing.

    It will automagically make it a link and add a title.

    Thanks, I should have just tried it; but I didn't want to make a mess.
    Also, thanks Lurker for the PM.

    What happened to Acker? Wasn't he doing pretty in Greece. He's not on the summer team so what's his future with the pistons look like?

    he's not on the summer league roster so he looks to be a free man.

    There's no information anywhere on Acker. This is a bit weird. Pistons are not saying anything regarding his status.

    Had a two year deal with a player option the second year.......in Greece. Team over there didn't want him back this season. The coach had difficulties with him. Someone here said the coach just may be hard to get along with. My take is that if you get cut in Greece by the coach, you're not Piston material.

    what acker's coach in greece thinks doesn't mean %%%% in the nba IMHO.
    the guy was a bit weird. it's like getting dissed by a schizophrenic saunders. would you really take the guy's thoughts as gospel.

    i'm a bit confused as to why there's been no mention of acker. i think he could have helped us this year but i guess joe d has other ideas after his drafting this past week.

    Ditto. Man I am watching this Seattle/Dallas Summer League game and all I can say is whoever is doing the broadcast, can they puleeze take over all the NBA games? It's great. It's just like being right there. The cameras seem to be much closer to the action, they zoom in on conversations between players and you can hear the crowd and the coaching. Why are the NBA games so canned and almost calculated to be generic and uninspiring? I swear. I want this camera crew. And I can hear the sneakers squeaking on the floor. It's really fantastic. Almost like being there live. I can't wait to see our Pistons tomorrow!!! I mean even the color is better on the unis! (Okay I know it's a much smaller venue, but still...surely ESPN and ABC can do a better job of covering the court and the game, can't they?

    Kim,

    You have to pony up for the ferry ride. Seeing the Sonics live is just like summer league. I fell in love with the Pistons during the Teal era, when you could buy a cheap ticket and sit behind the bench. I will always be a Pistons fan... but there is a level of fan participation that you can only get watching the hopefuls. God Speed, young players, may you find your way in the NBA.

    If you thought Durant's one rebound was amusing you must think Greg Oden's 2 boards four TO's and 10 fouls was one heck of a knee slapper. :pound:

    I think Acright just wants to get back to the USA. I hope he didn't blow it.

    I don't think Darko has ever committed 10 fouls in a game, at least not an organized game in the U.S. of A.

    But then he was not a #1 pick. LOL

    That just proves my point about Durant avoiding contact at all costs. How does a rookie play 30 minutes in a summer league game and only get one foul called on him and only one rebound? There is only one way that I know of and that is to avoid contact.

    At least Oden was banging. Oden will be okay once he the officials come to an understanding.

    Hogwash.

    If fouls are indicative of effort why does Ben Wallace rarely foul out? (I'm not comparing anyone to Ben, it's just an example that fouls = effort is far from truth)

    I don't understand why so many folks think the next level is going to be harder for Durant but easier for Oden (oh, once the officials give him his "pass" of course :pound:)

    We're talking about a guy that out rebounded Oden while averaging more cumulative blocks and steals as well. He achieved this while playing out on the perimeter while Oden was camped in the lane mind you.

    Now all of a sudden Durant is soft.

    Tell you what, explain to me how Oden is not a better rebounder than Durant in college, but he's automatically better coming into the NBA?

    No way that makes any sense.

    Oh yea, you're a wonderful person whom I respectfully disagree with :)
