    Clerical assistant...that's right a male secretary...laugh it up
  1. I dunno, if Wilcox plays well, then he opts of the contract and the Pistons are out nothing. If he plays poorly and comes back he becomes a flexible low-cost expiring contract that could be thrown in a deal if need be. I'm not gonna lose sleep over it.
  2. This comment is puzzling as I had assumed that Kuester was keeping the assistants from last year and they just needed one guy to replace Dave Cowens.
  3. The Rockets threw oodles of money at the Pistons for the rights to Budinger, so, assuming that the financial cushion helps facilitate some future trade I don't think we can ever really say it is/was regrettable. Of course, the Pistons sure could use a shooter what with all these "playmakers."
  4. Why do people act as if this is the end of Dumars' effort to rebuild the team as opposed to the beginning? He is amassing pieces, and I believe he will be able to move almost anyone on the roster whenever he sees an opportunity strike.
  5. Well, something tells me there are going to be a lot of 115-104 losses in our future. However, it seems to me like Dumars is just amassing as much talent as he can get his hands on. The roster doesn't really have any stiffs on it, and most of the players are quite young. A lot of interesting, moveable pieces that may be attractive to other teams in the future.
  6. The only reason Pavlovic was in that deal is because the Suns wanted his non guaranteed contract. They arn't going to trade him to take on more money. And as was said previously Buckner is probably going to fetch something more enticing than Maxiell.
  7. Agreed. At this point I'd rather deal for Boozer with an eye toward relieving the team of Rip's contract, but if the only way to get Boozer is to give up Tayshaun I say no thanks. Who knows, maybe Memphis will fall in love with Rip and his owner will make the GM trade for him.
  8. I wish I had shelled out money to watch the games. Does anyone know if Summers is succeeding more at the 3 or 4?
  9. 1. This team is going to have problems down low no matter what. 2. I am getting less confident that they will find an adequate big to start the season. 3. In a year of transition maybe a bit of harmless nostalgia as a way to send one of the best Pistons ever out on top is a good thing. 4. Whose progress would he be impeding exactly? 5. Signing him for the Vet minimum has no cap implications. 6. Bring him back.
  10. I believe one story said that Bynum is skipping the Summer League due to family issues.
  11. Yeah that "poison pill" signing bonus leads me to believe they didn't just make the move so that the Jazz would hurry up and get the three-team trade finalized. If this created bad blood between the teams I would imagine that takes the Blazers out of the equation where Boozer is concerned. As far as Afflalo, I like him as much as anybody, but unless he figures out how to fix his shot release and hit the open 3-pointer his role in the NBA is going to be reduced. He was such a harder worker I was hoping he'd have it figured out by last season but that wasn't the case. He is definitely expendible if it helps the Pistons aquire someone in the front court.
  12. So can anyone bust out the numbers of how many at bats could reasonably be expected for Maggs if he is only expected to be playing against lefties? How many at bats are typical in a lefty/righty split?
  13. I wonder if that impacts any decisions that Dumars could possibly make with this season. Maybe he will hold onto his money, let some more slide off the books and try and get a bigger steal next season when finances are even more dire.
