Stanley Johnson

Was just looking at the box score of the clippers/Pistons game and it said that Johnson was suspended by the team. Does anyone know what happened? I had a quick look but couldn't find anything.

Seems he's been more stubborn and hard headed after his Drew league performance in the off season. SVG has said he's hard to coach. I wonder if that has anything to do with it? Is Stanley going to be a problem for the Pistons going forward?

Probably

frustrated by his lack of playing time. No talented lottery pick wants to ride the pine

Wonder if the Thunder could get him for cheap then...

Just said he violated team rules: Which could range from missing practice,being bad in the locker room/talking back to coach,Turned up in a bad state(hungover),missing weight session missed flight or something of that nature..

I wouldn't mind the guy on the Thunder if they want to move on from him..

Maybe they would take A-morrow or Singler,part of our trade exception for him and maybe a couple of 2nd rounders(Tried it on Espn trade machine it works)..The reason both sides do this trade:

Stan gets a vet that needs minimal minutes,doesn't complain, spaces the floor for their system and if it doesn't work out it frees up some cap for them to go after something else in the offseason..The 2nd rounders also give them some future youth..Or if they wanted Singler he seems to be quite good in Stans system he is also on a cheap deal and you have three more years at that price..

Reason the Thunder do this: We need a better SF,He could be our future starting Sf,we have two more years to see if he fits while he is on a cheap deal.

Probably won't happen though..As I'm sure Stan would have a few options if he is on the table.

Detroit traded away Singler

Detroit traded away Singler in the first place. Pretty sure they don't want him back. No way I'd do a Morrow/Johnson swap. Morrow brings nothing defensively to the table. Sure he can shoot, but at his age I'd rather have Johnson. Only way I see SVG giving up on Johnson is if we were able to get a similar young piece back or a star player upgrade at another position.

You are most likely right.

Your most likely right they will proably go for something else. I could see another young player in return but a star player thats not going to probably going to happen-But that is dependent on who/what you view as a star..

But If you think about it this way:You have a player that is disgruntled(Stan) who is getting no minutes anyway which could start to hurt team chemistry..See Josh smith for how that can work for them-which they bought out vs trading him.The Nerlens Noel with the 76ers who is now trading at dollar to cents(young player unhappy with current situation) or even the Reggie J trade to Detroit is a good example of how things can go if someone wants out/is really unhappy..

If the Pistons wanted someone that fits/knows Stans system and won't complain about anything:That is why Kyle makes sense you could give him Stans 5-10 minutes a game without much issue..But as you said they may not want him back.

If the Pistons want a shooter to fit stans system ala J.J reddick or to have cap room next offseason Morrow makes sense,For some reason A-mo is lookin a little better on the defensive end at the moment so there is that also.Detroit doesn't exactly have any calming vets on the team which is the role A-mo could play for Stan..

I've been a believer in him

I've been a believer in him since his Senior year and thought he was a better prospect than Winslow. I don't know what the deal is with him but hopefully he figures things out. And I would love for OKC to get him but for Stan to take that offer^, things would have to be pretty bad with him

See Josh smith trade if things are that bad lol

Most likely wont happen but I can be optimitic lol

The Pistons bought out Josh smith rather than trade him which shows Stan is not afraid to remove bad locker room guys(if that is what stan is becoming)..

A-mo could come off the books or be brought back for cheap and Singler knows Stans system and is on a cheapish deal. The only catch is we would have to give them a trade exception or a heavily protect first rounder(When ever we are allowed to trade it)/some 2nd rounders at least

Hard to say who is truly better out of Justise and Stan as they both chose different paths at college and are both in different situations right now: One chose to be the number 1 option the other chose to be a 2nd/3rd option and chase a ring.. So they may have shown different skill sets at the time..As for the NBA one is now starting on a bad team vs a Role player on a good team,which allows for different things to be worked on/shown during a game..

Philly

What do people think about at potential Noel/Johnson swap?

Wouldn't do it

As it would be essentially a double of the same type of player who is currently there Star player(Andre drummond). However a Stauskas+ something else for him may get the ball rolling if they had to deal with the 76ers...

Philly needs more guards not

Philly needs more guards not wings, Detroit doesn't need another athletic defensive minded center with no offense. ATL/OKC would be good fits for Stanley if they do decide to try and trade him.

Stanley Johnson

If Johnson got suspended, I think it's probably more than showing up late to practice. SVG is universally respected by his players and he is regarded as stern but fair. No way he would suspend a player for something minor. Could be that Johnson is a difficult dude, and the suspension is more the result of a bunch of small stuff and SVG just got fed up with the guy. If I were SJ, I'd get with the program and make nice. No one wants a locker room problem.

My opinion Stanley Johnson is

My opinion Stanley Johnson is just a solid prospect or can end up being good very solid player, but nothing really special. I don't see why teams should or would give up much to try to get him. Jae Crowder is a realistic type of player for comparison if he doesn't bust.

I haven't looked it up yet,

I haven't looked it up yet, but who was the last player from Arizona that was able to produce in the NBA at a high level. The only 4 people that I can even think of that are from Arizona in the NBA right now is Derrick Williams, Stanley Johnson, TJ McConnell, and Aaron Gordon. And none of them look like they were worth their pick. Besides TJ...
