The Pistons are in horrible shape can anyone come up with any trade ideas to help them?
Prince is their most valuable asset, bc his contract is expiring.
Rip will be harder to move bc he has another year on his.
But yeah, they need to rid themselves of the logjam at 2 and 3.
I have a feeling prince will be moved around the deadline if they are doing well, and the same thing next year with Rip.
I think the best bet is to try to move prince and get some help inside or maybe a true pg.
*arent doing well
First, I think they need to let Joe Dumars go, he hasn't necessarily been the greatest GM around...
2nd, I dont have any trade ideas, but I think before the season starts they need to trade Rip Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, and just completely start the rebuilding process over. It seems like there still holding onto pieces of that '04 team
Rip Hamilton and T-Mac for Caron Butler
Kidd - Roddy Buckets - JJ Barera
Terry - Jones - Stevenson
Hamilton - T-Mac - Marion
Dirk - Marion - Ajinca
Haywood - Chandler - Ajinca
bro im with u the pistons r &$#%#&@!.... lets see how this yr goes, maybe kyrie irving i hope in the lottery lol next yr
They need to revamp the whole roster..
Ben Gordon is probably not tradable because of that terrible contract.. So, they will jut have to eat his contract and try to use him for a punch off the bench.
Rip Hamelton is going to have to go to a team that is set for the next few years and are comfortable taking a fairly long contract.. Maybe they could trade him to the Hornets for:
Peja and Songaila
Hamilton and Maxiell
That gives the Pistons lots of money coming off the books and they could possibly work out a buyout..
They could send Prince to the Magic for Bass and Peitrus.. That gives the Pistons a great defender and a young PF to pair with Monroe...
Those are just ideas... Ehh.. Oh well
They literally have the worst franchise player in the NBA in Rodney Stuckey. Honestly for me, if they don't trade Hamilton and Prince than their season will serve virtually no purpose, because they have no chance of doing anything. They have overpaid Ben Gordon like anything. He cannot start beside Rodney Stuckey and the guy is so one dimensional. Dumars has to go, too. They will have the worst record in the NBA.
Does anyone feel bad for Monroe?? LoL.. This kid gets drafted to a team that he doenst fit with and where he is look at as the guy to take them to the next level..
The Pistons should just completly blow up this year.. Send Ben Wallace to the Lakers so he can get a ring again before he quits.. Then he could be a very useful bench player..
Trade anyone that is older than 25 for anything you can get for them... Go ahead and admit that you F'd up by trading for AI.. Start over with Monroe and Stucky and hope that White turns into a player..
They suck I would love for rip to go to Chicago and I hope they get Kyrie Irving damn this team is awful Joe Dumars is an idiot he should thank John hammond for that 04 ring
Theres no way this happens so dont rip me apart or anything i just thought this trade would benefit all teams in the trade
the trade for ai wouldnt have sucked so bad if they used the money his expiring contract gave them on players that could actually help them win...then it wouldnt have been such a bad move. People talk about it like it was an awful deal but really they weren't bout to win it all with Chauncey there still. Joe just made poor judgement on who to pick up and sadly im not suprised. And yeah they need to blow it all up and try to have a bad record so they actually can rebuild
Rip Hamilton and T-Mac or a 2nd rounder for J Rich?
