With the trade deadline just around the bend, trade talks will be on the rise.... In an effort to pull it all together, this thread can be used to post your trade ideas and rumors. Here's the first in a series on proposals to kick it off: Dallas is looking to add depth at the PF/C position and may be interested in one of our bigs if we pick up Webber (Dallas News) . Detroit trades: Rasheed Wallace Will Blalock Ronald Dupree Dallas trades: Desagana Diop Anthony Johnson Jerry Stackhouse Detroit signs Chris Webber Reasons for Detroit... they get out of Sheeds long term contract and gain 8M for next years options. Webber is not a big drop off from Rasheed (todays version)... the future opens up for Amir Johnson and Maxiell. The Pistons gain a big shot blocker in Diop for future matchups with Miami (Diop is one of the few players that slows down Shaq). Anthony Johnson is a solid defensive PG/SG Stack gives us a real scoring option off the bench... and has a 9.3 expiring deal. Reasons for Dallas: Not a team to be concerned about lux tax implications they gain a much needed scoring PF/C that can stretch the defense for their wing players (Sheed). They free more up PT for Harris and Howard Second Deal Detroit trades: Nazr Mohammed Flip Murray Minny 2nd round pick Seattle trades: Earl Watson Johan Petro (salary filler) Reasons for Seattle... Murray should opt out of his deal next year, giving the Sonics just enough room off the hard cap to stay out of the lux tax next year. They are desperate for a veteran Center that can score. The Minny pick may be close to a first round pick when they receive it. Reasons for Detroit... The Piston gain a true backup PG that can distribute, score and defend. They get out of the long term Nazr mistake. They become a better interior defensive team. PG security in case Chauncey decides to walk next year. Better cap flexibilty for next year and beyond Pistons become: C- Dale Davis, Desagana Diop, Johan Petro PF- Chris Webber, Antonio McDyess, Jason Maxiell SF- Tayshaun Prince, Carlos Delfino, Jerry Stackhouse SG- Richard Hamilton, Jerry Stackhouse, Anthony Johnson PG- Chauncey Billups, Earl Watson, Anthony Johnson A team that can defend and score. Watson and Delfino become an excellent playmaking combo for the scorers.
