Trade proposal: Billups, Murray, and Mohammed to the Warriors for Baron Davis.
How's about one of our bigs (Nazr, McDyess or Davis) for M. Pietrus. He's going to be the odd-man out in Oakland, and has shown to be a solid defender, shooter and rebouder as a SG/SF. Maybe like Bonzi who can shoot the 3-ball, without the baggage. Any thoughts?
Dumars4Ever has corrected me. Apparently the trade deadline is Feb 22. I must have grabbed bad info back in the preseason when I posted it to the calendar. So, Trade Deadline = Feb 22. My bad.
His game has intrigued me for a few seasons now. I think that with the rise of Matt Barnes Pietrus is definitely the odd man out and he's a better wing player than anybody on our team not named Rip, I think that he could give Tay a run.
roscoe: other stuff moved to Trade thread in NBA Stuff forum in response to MainManJoeD and KGREG's on-topic suggestions, I also like Pietrus and agree that he might be available, particularly with Chris Mullin's history as GM. His game isn't really anything like Bonzi Wells', though; Bonzi is at his best when he's on the low block, while is a Corey Maggette-like slasher/shooter. He has Maggette's streaky jumpshot and tendency for bad decision-making as well, but he usually makes a positive impact on offense and he's a much better defender than either Maggette or Wells. He's a lot like Delfino, actually, although he's a much more aggressive scorer and not nearly as good a rebounder. If he's available, he's exactly the kind of player the Pistons could use.
Joe was on WDFN, spoke about trading one of the six big men. I will endeavour to get it posted after the game. I found it interesting.
Thread open again. Please continue posting Pistons trade ideas here. The Golden State - Indiana trade discussion has been moved here http://www.pistonsforum.com/nba-stuff/5830-pacers-warriors-swap-rosters.html
You are right, he is nothing like Wells, and does play a lot like Delfino. So maybe we don't need another if we've got one. Based on following his fantasy progress this year, he actually seems to be quite a good rebounder for a wing player ~6 per game in less than starter minutes, and shoots the ball at a high percentage from 2 and 3 as well. Poor Ft shooter, though, but he doesn't shoot a lot. Seems to have a great attitude, plays hard all the time. But back-up PG should be our main concern for the moment.
Count me in on the Nazr 4 Pietrus trade (need salay filler)... that boy can play defense to boot.
Box score tonight shows no JMax and Nazr. Make of it what you will.
I don't think McDyess will be traded, but I could be wrong. He's perfect for Joe's "doesn't need X shots" philosophy. Dice just wants to win. I'm really scared that Maxiell may be on the block.
I hope you're right. If anyone knows that Dice doesn't really show his true worth until after the turn of the year, it would be Joe. The mere thought of that makes me want to cry
I sure hope this isn't true. If it is, Joe better be doing a Maxiell for KG swap. That's the only way I could understand losing the brahma.
This interview http://www.pistonsforum.com/detroit...130am-joe-dumars-interview-jan-17-2007-a.html has some really interesting insight from Joe about how he sees the trade landscape for the Pistons and what they can expect to get for a big man. I would transcribe it, but I'm beat. Go have a listen.
Sacramento Kings - Kings notes: Hart creates a buzz among fans, players - sacbee.com I think it is safe to say, that after no one wanted Flip Murray in free agency, now no one wants him in trade. The guy just might have to exercise that option because I don't see him as a lock to get a contract with a team next season. This guy is so far below other GM's radar, he's subterranean. What the heck were the Pistons scouting staff thinking when they signed this guy?
Can we just waive him? Would the salary still count towards the cap? Even if it does, it frees up a roster spot and relieves us of 6-7 misses FG's per game. And 6-7 made FG's at the other end...
Yes we can waive him. But he would stay on the books for two seasons. It looks like the reality is that Flip Murray doesn't have very much value out there, and I would be really disappointed if we had to include a pick to free a roster spot and relieve the salary burden.
Trade him for a 2nd rounder and cash. Cash - the ultimate slap in the face for someone being traded.
We would take a trade exception back. But the cash could offset the cost of the exception. Interesting.
Jason Hart/Flip Murray Trade Rumors Sacbee article stated that Joe D tried a pitch for Jason Hart however, Sac did not want Flip's second year on his contract. Jason Hart wants more playing time. Anyone have the skinyy on Jason Hart?
