    Is it possible the only new face on this year's team will be Brandon Knight? If so is it possible that we might be the worst team in the Eastern Conference?

    Thats actually pretty good for Jerebko. I was thinking more around $5M a year. His injury probably saved the Pistons a lot of money.

    Sweet deal on Jerebko. That's a solid price even if he doesn't improve one bit from what we saw before his injury.

    So what does the roster look like?

    Starters:
    G Ben Gordon (6'3")
    G Rodney Stuckey (6'5")
    F Tayshaun Prince (6'9")
    F Jonas Jerebko (6'10")
    C Greg Monroe (6'11")

    Off the bench:
    G Will Bynum
    G Brandon Knight
    F Charlie Villanueva
    F Austin Daye
    F Jason Maxiell
    C Ben Wallace

    Is Chris Wilcox still on the team? The starters don't look too bad. Off chance for a 30 win team (30-36)?

    Well, it doesn't sound like Stuckey will be back...just check out his Twitter. What an *******. Oh well, would have just been another large contract for us...

    Hope this is the lineup:

    PG Brandon Knight
    SG Ben Gordon
    SF Tayshaun Prince
    PF Jonas Jerebko
    C Greg Monroe

    If BG has a nice first half, we could probably find a trade partner.

    Is that his real account?? It's not verified and some of the things he tweets make me think it can't be him.

    Defintely suspicious, but it was retweeted by Vince Goodwill, so Vince should know if it is real or not. I imagine he's in the know on stuff like that

    Just found it here:

    Unverified Rodney Stuckey twitter account tweets about wanting out of Detroit PistonPowered

    Honestly, I do not have any hard feelings if that is him. He is only speaking his mind and not really bad mouthing the Pistons. He just wants out from a team that is clearly still a long ways from winning. Can we do a sign and trade with him? The return does not have to be that great...just something decent so we don't lose him for nothing.

    I really, really hope it is his account. Whatever gets the Pistons to let him go will make me a happy man. If both Stuckey and Rip are gone, I'll consider it a successful off-season. If only we could find a way to add CV to the mix as well.

    PISTONS: Pistons Sign Guard-Forward Damien Wilkins

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. The Detroit Pistons announced today that they have signed guard-forward Damien Wilkins. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
    Wilkins, 31, appeared in 52 games for the Atlanta Hawks last season averaging 3.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in 13.0 minutes per game. He appeared in eight postseason contests with the Hawks, averaging 1.8 points and 1.0 rebounds in 4.9 minutes per game. The seven-year NBA pro has career averages of 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 20.0 minutes in 442 games with Seattle, Oklahoma City, Minnesota and Atlanta. Undrafted out of the University of Georgia, Wilkins enjoyed his best season a pro with Seattle in 2007-08 when he averaged 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 76 games (31 starts). He scored a career-high 41 points with a season-high nine rebounds at Atlanta (11/16) that season in addition to notching his 2,000th career point vs. Phoenix (3/19/08).

    Wilkins is the son of 13-year NBA veteran Gerald Wilkins and nephew of Atlanta Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins.

    Apparently they can't "see" the defensive end of the court.

    haha, nice.

    Friday night preseason game, I will watch only because I never do anything on Friday night, and I am really craving some NBA.

    I am guessing the Thursday schedule will be a little more jam packed this year.

    Told ya he is gonna get paid.

    @chadfordinsider

    Stuckey's reps have contacted a couple of teams about sign-and-trades. Very unlikely Pistons will agree to one. They want to keep him.
    Stuckey's people threatening to take Pistons' 1 year qualifying offer. If they do, he's an unrestricted FA in summer of 2012.

    They don't want to encourage him to find a deal that pays him more than they are offering in return for bad players. Then they have to pay him or trade him for crap. The less outside options he has, the more leverage they have in negotiations.

    How can Dumars honestly believe paying Stuckey $10M a year for 4 years is a good move?

    It's a 5 year offer. But $8-$9M a year doesn't make it hurt any less in my opinion.

    On the other hand, I can certainly see why Stuckey is asking for this type of money.

    Stuckey is justified in asking for this kind of money. I don't think he's worth that kind of money to the Pistons though, and I really don't understand how Dumars is trying to build this roster. It's as if he is satisfied having the Pistons be stuck in NBA purgatory.

    The Pistons should hope he signs for the 1 year qualifying offer, which I believe is only $3.8 million or so. Stuckey will play hard this year in order to get a big payday in the summer. If he plays well, good for us in 2011-12 and maybe we enter the FA market to keep him...if he plays lousy or sulks, let him go at the end of the season. Seems like a win-win to me to push Stuckey in the direction to sign the qualifying offer.

    A sign and trade generally means the team has no cap space to sign him, so they have to trade some players off their cap for him. That means we have all the leverage to say, give us X or we won't help you out.

    I would probably not go over 5/40-45, but the market rate is pretty high I suppose.

    Actually, I don't think that is true. Most sign and trades happen after a player is signed to an offer sheet. Then the two teams worked out a deal so the player could get an extra year and bigger raises by signing with his original team. Now that motivation is gone because they took it out in the new CBA. Because they signed him to an offer sheet, that means they have the cap room to make the deal without a S&T.
