    Horace Jenkins is a big star in Israel I believe.

    Sadly, Horace looks just like Dupree. =\

    ASB hinted that Detroit may be looking at a sign and trade with Delfino and Harrington. Those salaries don't add up unless we throw in someone like Dice.

    If we trade Dice and Delfino for Harrington, this team is officially lottery bound.

    I would take Al Harrington over Dice anyday and twice on Sundays.

    Harrington is

    1.) Younger
    2.) Has a better off the dribble and paint game
    3.) Is a better passer

    He's not an elite rebounder, defender or shotblocker, but neither is McDyess.

    Still, McDyess has a trade kicker that makes it difficult to move him.

    Delfino+Davis = 4.5M. A trade within 25% of the salary would mean a max salary of $5.625 for Harrington. Add in another $1.5-2M player (resign Cato) and the starting salary would increase to around $7.5M. It is feasible, whether the Hawks would bite is another issue.

    as I stated before, it would be very dumb to trade Delfino now- his stats and his past play hasn't lead to a big value. If he'd be given about 15mpg on a regular basis in the coming season he could increase his value dramastically and it won't become lower since it's already on the bottom.
    We should keep him at least til the coming season, we're going to have to be worried if Darko breaks out anyway, I don't want to worry about a 2nd one.

    i like the signing

    people are still under the old pistons thought process. this pistons team will play a totally different type of game. ronald dupree can finish on the break if nothing else. he will also defend the 3 spot. the pistons now have waves of 3's to throw at other teams. instead of just tay alone.

    he is insurance for if delfino still isn't happy by midseason.

    this is not a rebuilding season. the pistons will still be fighting for the nba championship. joe is going to pull a midseason trade and things will be back on track. i look for us to start off this year the same way we did last year. this year we'll just have the horses to keep up throughout the whole year.

    If the team involved in the trade is under the cap, say Atlanta, then the trade kicker doesn't make much difference. The team under the cap absorbs the kicker without a problem. Detroit just has to take back within the acceptable % of whatever the kicker makes the value.

    Re: i like the signing

    You think so? Remember we got nothing in return for Ben so we just got worse.

    Joe has to be thinking trade though. If Dupree, Flip, and Dale do really good he 'll probably try trading them for someone good. It's hard to get a trade that really works in your favor though.

    This doesn't always happen, but I completely agree with you. Even with the current roster, the Pistons should still be right in the mix.

    Yeah if we keep CB. If not Micro can fold this forum up into a download folder.

    I see you like Chauncey a lot TFD. I hope he goes on the route that makes him good and instead of being a regular season performer he becomes the best in the playoffs.

    This forum's continuation is not contingent on what happens to the Pistons.

    Re: i like the signing

    I don't know if he can get any better. But he's more consistent than Kidd
    but not as good a slasher as Nash. At least not in our system.

    A real fan sticks with his/her team through thick and thin. I think most of the folks that frequent this forum are loyal Piston fans. I hope so, at least. I know I sat through a few games at the Silverdome back in the day that weren't exactly "meaningful" games.
