  1. Now they're likely stretching Smith apparently. Confusing move unless there's some other moves in the works.
  2. Great result, exactly what was needed to sweep twittle dumb and twittle dumber out of here. If getting destroyed by a team led by an XFL QB doesn't get these morons fired nothing will. This was a classic "Fire the regime" game. It's too bad that they won the Atlanta and Washington games that should have been losses. They could have been in a position for the new regime to draft the next QB, not so much now although it's a pretty deep QB draft. It looks like they won't even get to that mythical 6-7 win mark I projected that would keep the bozos around. A Houston loss should certainly cement that with a tough finishing kick to the schedule.
  3. I don't agree with your position, obviously. All you've done is counter with childish remarks but I'm sure you know that already. Agree to disagree. Cheers
  4. Do you always have to argue like a child instead of actually providing a useful counter instead of "oh, you're so negative, have fun never enjoying anything"? Talk about insufferable.
  5. To take on bad contracts and accumulate picks which is what Weaver said was his objective and seemed on the right track with the Ariza trade. Instead, they overpayed guys to multi-year contracts who will hardly move the needle exactly like Dumars and SVG did and are right back where they were before Drummond and Jackson were moved with a team that's kind of stuck in the middle with not many future assets or cap space to work with. They have a few extra added prospects which is nice but they need a lot more and don't have the assets, as of now, to really stock the cupboard. We'll see where this goes from here but today was a step back.
  6. Here's an article that captures my feelings. "Going in Circles"... https://www.detroitbadboys.com/2020/11/21/21588244/nba-free-agency-detroit-pistons-jerami-grant-mason-plumlee-christian-wood-trevor-ariza-troy-weaver Today was a very disappointing day, sapped most of the hope I had after the draft unless some follow up moves are made.
  7. They had to waive Dedmon and McGruder and take on their dead cap for the next 5 seasons just to fit Grant and Plumlee in and they have no notable contracts outside of Rose (which is peanuts really) coming off the books for 2 years (Blake will probably opt in). They have limited flexbililty the next 2 seasons with these two contracts and the dead cap added unless Weaver can pull off some voodoo and con somebody into taking the Blake contract. We'll see if Weaver makes any more trades but as of now, I'm not sure what the plan is. Spending big in free agency on ok players was the worst thing he could do IMO. It's exactly what SVG and Dumars did. BTW, I was really positive about the draft if you bothered to read my posts in the draft thread so no I'm not always negative.
  8. They paid a role player $20M/yr and a 30+ year old bench guy almost $9M/yr all while destroying their flexibility the next few seasons and adding $4M of dead cap for the next 5 years. Is this something to be celebrated? This is just like the previous cycle of GMs, clogging cap space with mediocre players and stretching out contracts that had no need to be stretched out. The Jackson and Okafor signings were smart, talented reclamation projects signed to no risk deals. The last thing they needed to do was to go crazy in this free agency period with multi-year contracts. I don't mind Plumlee and Grant as players but those are really bad contracts, too much for too long. It's like the Leuer and Galloway signings all over again except more expensive, just when they got out of those bad deals. Baffling
  9. They waived Dedmon which freed up about $10M I believe although they took the poison pill of stretching out his dead cap (about $3M I believe) over 5 years.
  10. It's horrendous, just like the Grant contract. Is anybody outside of Grant, Plumlee and Weaver happy about this?
  11. There must be a bigger deal at work here because these are awful moves on the surface. Apparently he stretched Dedmon's deal which goes for 5!!! years. Jesus Add in the overpay in the Kennard trade and the confusing Brown trade and I'm not sure there's a plan here. It was nice to have hope for a day or two.
  12. I have a feeling that they might want to keep Rose to have a vet around with all the new young guys in the fold then trade him at the deadline when he might have more value. BTW, it turns out that the Pistons traded FOUR!!! 2nd rounders in the Kennard deal and got Jaylen Hands from the Nets so essentially, Bey+Hands for Kennard+4 2nds. Yeesh, pretty pricey if you ask me but at least the Pistons 2nds are in the '24-'26 drafts when they should be a better team (the first one is a '23 Portland 2nd).
  13. Pretty much. Maybe this strategy doesn't work but what we do know is that the old strategy wasn't working. The definition of insanity....well you know the rest. I, for one, welcome our new "Blowing **** up" overlord.
  14. He got his Frenchie 2 drafts in row. That's "Lions winning the Superbowl" level of excitement for Buddha.
  15. I wouldn't say that yet in regards to Wood. Apparently Dedmon is about to be moved again, seems like Weaver wants to clear cap space.
