It's really become a theme for us to have brutal second quarters with our bench in. Really missing Monroe, Jennings and now Dinwiddie

Drummond needs to work on passing the ball out of the post. Seems like he gets locked in on making a move and blocks out passing

Very few players have a knack for finishing in traffic like Jackson.

I agree with the above comment on our wings. They are awful. A lot of work to do this offseason.

Not bad for the 25th best PG in the league (really ESPN?).

RJ's gonna get PAID this offseason. Might as well just max him right now and get it over with.

It is the first time in a long time I can say that the Pistons have a player on their roster that has the potential to be an NBA star.

Seems like it is definitely trending torwards a max deal for for Jackson. I would have thought that was nuts 3 weeks ago but it doesn't seem so much that way now. I think he could even be substantially more effective if you load the lineup with good shooters around him.

And I do think the Pistons end up giving RJ a max deal.

I hope they do. Should be a fun off-season.

Any good wing players they might be able to grab in the draft? Or will it have to be upgraded in free agency?

I would be ok with one of the Green Cousins, a few others out there as well.

In the 11 games without Monroe, he has only reached fewer than 9 AST once--he had 8 that contest.

Jackson may very well be a 20/10/5 guy next season. Gotta hold onto a guy like that.

I'm completely fine with giving him the max. He has legit star potential and it's almost impossible for a team like the Pistons to get one via free agency.

He reminds me of a mini-Wade, eerily similar actually, their motions are so similar with that herky jerky style. If he developed that outside shot a bit more, he could be a top 5 pg IMO.

I'm not so certain about that.

The 1st thing they'll do is they'll let him shop around to see what offers he gets.

And as a Restricted FA... I don't see teams offering him a max contract. Despite this nice run, there's not enough of a track record to just offer him the max, for an outside team at least.

That leaves the Pistons.

And if we don't have to offer him the max, then SVG should be able to talk him into a reasonable contract. Which might be 5 and $70-75M, or $14-15M per.

Not a bad contract for someone who has been a starter only a few months, and still has lots to improve on.

And if the argument is to help build a great team around him (meaning don't offer Max's simply to offer them, as if they were candy, and if the opportunity is that RJ, or Middleton, or any other FA will ACCEPT a less-than-max contract, then that's what you incorporate into your salary-capped-team-structure), then there has to be some fiscal restraint. On both sides.

He's a mini-Westbrook, same position, same size, scoring/assists/rebounding, he's just not as athletic, although he is more athletic then many points, Westbrook is the most athletic player in the league.
