    This is indeed strange. I wonder if this is why Pistons may be interested in Wallace.

    Makes no sense. What does Seattle have that we would want? Sign and trade for Rashard Lewis is about the only thing I can figuire. Maybe you get Ridenour thrown in the deal with Lewis and we ship Nazr with Rip. Still doesn't make much sense though.

    This could be a 3-team deal. We pass Lewis on to someone else? I don't know. It is only a rumor.

    Looks like nonsense to me. Just ignore it.

    I'd rather trade CB with Nazr against the listed 3. Earl Watson is too good to be only a backup PG and we wouldn't get an even nearly adequate SG for Rip.
    Why should the Pistons do a trade that makes them worse?

    I've just listened to and watched an entire week on all the things Afflalo can't do. Please tell me Dumars isn't this stupid.

    No way this happens. Rip maybe has one of the cheapest contracts for his production and is young. Maybe in 2 years not now.

    Considering all that has been said I've been wondering how he became the Pac-10 player of the year and and All-American. But I guess there have been others that failed to make the jump successfully.

    With the news that the Sonics just traded for Kurt Thomas, whose deal is expiring at the end of the year, does the prospects of a Rip to Seattle deal become more plausible? appealing?

    What about Hamilton for Kurt Thomas and a prospect/ future first rounder. Then we turn around and trade Nazr, Murray and Dupree for Hedo and Trevor Ariza. I am also still a proponent of signing Brevin Knight as a true backup PG. This gives the team depth at each position, a true high percentage shooter in Hedo, a great perimeter defender in Ariza and a true pg to guide all the young offensive weapons on the bench. It also puts us in a better spot to upgrade the roster in the future with FA signings.

    C - Thomas/Wallace/Maxiell/Johnson
    PF - Wallace/McDyess/Maxiell/Johnson
    SF - Prince/Ariza/Afflalo/Maxiell/Mejia
    SG - Turkgolu/Stuckey/Afflalo/Mejia
    PG - Billups/Stuckey/Mejia

    Who will take Nazr, Flip, and Dupe in one trade? Even Otis can't be that dumb, can he?

    If my only option at center was Tony Battie and had no one that could be a suitable backup then I'd be looking to add a center. It isn't like the Magic don't want to return to the playoffs. Flip and Dupree are just salary matches with contracts that expire at the end of the year.

    I don't think lazy Turkish complies with Pistons DNA. Also, just because trade works out on the ESPN Trade Machine doesn't mean that it makes any sense.
