    Yes, but they get Bird rights on Tay, Sac, like us needs to make a trade for the sake of making a trade to at least give the illusion that they're trying to do something. They're going to lose Landry anyway, Tay at least gets a tryout for a team that may actually want to sign him in the off season for something above the mid level, if there is a mid leavel next year. It'll help their team get better, Landry hardly plays these days unless someone is injured. If Sac improves with Tay at least they have some sort of winning formula.

    i'm glad you asked, Memphis IS NOT GOING TO SIGN ZAC RANDOLPH and even with all those young perimeter players they still are looking at finishing 9th or 10th in west. Memphis will have no problem keeping Rip and signing Gasol AND staying under the lux cap. The year where they have to re-sign OJ Mayo is the same year Rip can be bought out for $3mill dollars, Rip's contract is essentially an expiring contract next season.

    This is a realistic trade. Each gets a change with enough flexibility to exit or build upon. You have a one year tryout and each player has options that could add benefits that you can add pieces around.

    Memphis will not be keeping Z. The Pistons will not be keeping Tay.

    Pistons get a free-up at the number 3 slot and Z slides over to the 4 which is an active void. The 3 slot now becomes an important area for a first class player addition. The four slot gets a solid double/double and helps transition Monroe as he matures. This also helps transition as the Pistons try to add a 5. Again, this will help the newly acquired center position modify certain pressures that lets them concentrate on defense (as in Monroe at 4-5) and taking pressure off of immediate offensive contributions that will be hard to come-by in any trade for a center. I am assuming that any center the Pistons try to go after will be somewhat young and in transition (there are at least 6-8 solid young ones to go after)...all are possible projects. The most important point for me out of this is that the 4 position is filled with solid offensive power close to the basket (along with some solid rebounding presence). The absence of this at both the 4 and 5 positions are killing the Pistons.

    Rip is an important trade because he brings immediate help via mid-range help to any approaching contender. With his movement the club might be able to get a two-fer and perhaps a slide-in on a young center project and will likely necessitate some baggage from the other trade member. Remember, this is the real world of trade-offs.

    Max is an asset and will help any team. He needs a change of scenery.

    Z comes home and he wants to come home. This means filling up a solid position and he now has maturity that might fit into some leadership role for the club. If Gordon and Stuckey stay, then Z brings a huge addition that adds additional bounce for each.

    I know there is little point discussing trade options with Joe sitting on his hands, but here is an interesting piece of news coming out of Washington.

    I think both players would be welcome on this team. McGee is a hustle defender and very capable shot blocker and dunker.

    Blatche has great skills for a big man. His attitude/maturity have been the main question marks thus far. Shot selection needs to be reigned in as he can fall in love with the jumper a bit and turns the ball over at a high rate.

    Still, I'd take both guys if they were available.

    McGee would be great on this team. The dude's almost averaging 10-10 and he's swatting away 2.5 shots a game. He also grew up in Detroit area.

    Agreed. I've thought all season long that he seemed like the kind of guy Joe would have gone after in 2003.

    That would be great. Give them both Rip and Tay. Or BG and Tay. Maybe even throw in Stuck.

    Doesn't Yao have to pass a physical to consummate a trade?

    I think that is up to the receiving team.

    With Yao, it should be no problem for Kander. He just needs to increase his bone density. 3 months tops.

    I'm sure that Arnie could devise a potion that would shrink Yao down to a more manageable 6'11" that would place less stress on his feet.

    ...or make him some orthotic insoles out of dried banana peels.

    The problem is that Yao couldn't dunk if he were only 6'11". Alligator arms.

    You could trade Maxiel and Rip for Yao and then just let Yao expire.

    I wonder how many Chinese internet fans would flood this forum if we even got an injured Yao for a few months.
