    It kinda sucks because we can't root for them to do well (it lowers our pick), but if they do too crappy it doesn't help us either because they'll get more lottery balls to get a chance at a top pick, and if their pick is a top one it is protected and we won't get it.

    I feel what ya saying. But fear not Darth. Orlando don't know nothing bout building a franchise. Best they can do is lure talent to sunny Florida, but they don't know what to do with it when they get it.

    I'm betting they finish between 8-14. If they look like they are going outside of that range, we may have to invade their board and give em a few "pointers." :laugh:

    Does Orlando have the option of keeping its 2007 pick if it's a lottery pick and giving us their 2008 pick?

    It's only top 5 protected next year... then it's unprotected the year after.

    We need some rookies so Sheed will have rookies to boss around. Sheed enjoys being the rookie helper. Not so sure the rookies like sheed's advice ,but at least they aren't neglected.

    You mean Lee 180? I think he's a double agent. I dunno if we can trust him (or his alter egos for that matter).

    Will the real Lee please stand up?

    Now that would be a dream come true, first Piston from Dar es Salaam, and 7'3" to boot.

    Nice score lurker. I wouldn't mind the Greg Oden consolation prize in that draft being a 7'3" shotblocker for Detroit.

    Can we trade a pick? Do we have anything of value to package with that pick?

    I see a problem: the preponderance of youth...a.k.a. low draft picks. Delfino is behind the learning curve at this point. J-max's situation doesn't look all that good this year. Amir is not ready. Acker and Blalock are interesting stories but are still long-shots as contributors. Add to that the two picks. One will be in the teens, the other in the 20's.
    As much as I like Acker (and blalock) I would really prefer a #11 pick over a #60 D-league regular. If we don't play our prospects, and with the addition of Flip, it becomes more likely that we won't, we will end up with too many players fighting for that last roster spot and we would STILL have to bring in a guy to be the 1st option off the bench.

    We can trade the Orlando pick, not our own.

    You cannot trade your own first round pick in consecutive years. We traded our 2006 pick for Carlos Arroyo.

    The pick trade rule is partially due to former Cleveland Cavalier's owner Ted Stepien who traded away all of his picks (along with several horrible, Dick Vital-esque trades) completely destroying his franchise.

    In the old days, you could do crazy stuff like trade 3 first round picks and 6 players for one player.

    Rumour has it that former Pistons GM Jack "The Trader" McCloskey once offered the Lakers the ENTIRE Pistons team for Magic Johnson.

    Sounds like the Mike Ditka trade for the rights to Ricky Williams when he was with New Orleans.

    Or the Eric Lindros trade to Philly.

    Whoa there, big guy. It's consecutive future years. What happened last year is completely irrelevant to the rule. You can trade away every single first round pick your team ever gets as long as you wait until the draft is over to trade away the next year's pick.

    Detroit can trade away both the Orlando pick and our pick in the upcoming draft.

    I re-read past the Stepien Rule and stand corrected. We can trade both of our picks this year.

    Don't feel too bad, I thought it was the same way even before you said anything.

    Even after re-reading that link, it could easily be missed.

    I'm happy Hobbs corrected me. No sense in spreading false info.

    What I did wrong was read the first part that says consecutive years and not further that explains the workaround. Should have known better.

    Breakdown

    Plus there are eight players 7 feet or taller. So who jumps out on this list that the Pistons may have a decent shot at?
