. A couple of points to keep in mind. First, they are rookies and have gotten some valuable playing time. Like all rookies, they come cheap and will continue to do so for the next couple of years. At worst (and I mean worse) they develop into solid bench players. One or perhaps both, might become eligible starters while still cheap. This youthful emphasis on cheap is an area most mindful for the Pistons. Second, there will be a lot of pressure for JD to take a chance on a combo deal that might not be a sure thing, but will include a throw in like one of these youngsters. The sharks know this and I still trust JD's honed and sharpened teeth over these last few years to help balance this out. Just as long as he doesn't panic. Disregarding a block-buster trade (advantage JD), he has to make Rip, Tay and JMax deals really count. I don't know his plan, but I don't feel comfortable about his (perhaps) unrealistic estimation of Stuckey's contribution as play-maker and leadership value. He has a terrible jump shot and then you look over toward Bengo...see what I mean?
