    How about moving the Pistons to Seattle and the Hornets to Detroit? Beyond getting perhaps the best PG around for Stuckey we get a decent C, a good PF and get rid of the BFF:s at the same time. It would solve pretty much all of the biggest issues discussed here. Just putting some out of the box-thinking out there.

    I think a 3rd team might have to get involved to pull this off.....

    How about we all just move to Miami. Regardless of how the Heat do, we could all enjoy South Beach at least.

    I've noticed it. I thought this was telling: ESPN put together a list of upbeat and downbeat stories in the NBA for each team and got input from local writers in each case. This was the best the New orleans guys could come up with:

    When the only positive you can come up with is a Langlois-esque endorsement of a rookie coach of a slumping team, your franchise is in serious trouble.

    I would take their roster over the Pistons every day of the week.

    For a change, I'm not trying to be sarcastic or express my cynicism.

    I'd like to hear some folks chime in regarding which NBA rosters you WOULDN'T rather have than the Pistons.
    (please factor in contracts, age of players, potential to development, etc.)

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the Phoenix Suns. I'd rather have our team.

    I wouldn't switch our roster for the Cavs.

    You can't view all rosters through one lens. I give more leeway to teams that may be older but have been more successful. I will favor teams like the Lakers and Celtics etc because of this.

    The Suns have the best player in Nash so that gives them a better escape route to me. They played in the WCF last year. They got that other Lopez kid who is better than any Piston big. JRich is probably a better player than anyone the Pistons got also. Then they have that Drazin, Grazin or whatever that young Euro PG's name is.

    It is the Suns to me although I hate their owner.

    The Cavs just pulled into Stinktown so that works in their favor to me. I think they have more to offer other teams in the likes of Varejao, Hickson, Jamison et al to spark a rebuild than the Pistons do.

    This one is close, but the Cavs have way more a reason to be stuck with a mediocre, no young talent roster (and just in Hickson alone they already have more young talent) than our Pistons.

    that's probably the only roster in the league that stinks as much as ours... but they're at least balanced, while Detroit has the quality at one position(!!!).

    Normally, I would say the Knicks, but damn...they're now good.

    yeah, at least we have Stuckey and didn't even try to get Felton... oh my, this summer just sucked big time. Al Jefferson going to Utah for basically NOTHING and not even trying to get one of the best PG's in the league although he was available.

    Felton wouldn't be anywhere near as good or efficient if he were playing with this roster and without D'Antoni.

    You are probably partially right, but I would still give him the edge of over Stuckey and would take him over Stuckey...

    His three pt shooting is better and even if the guys he passing to don't hit the bucket, he still makes the better decisions than [STRIKE]your[/STRIKE] our guy:sssh:

    At this point, I would trade Stuckey, Rip and Q for Felton and D'Antoni:)

    I wouldn't. Stuckey would put up 20/8 on efficient shooting in that D'Antoni system.

    NY already has a Rodney Stuckey, his name is Toney Douglas. Stuckey's decision making and overall feel for the PG position is just not there, he is a bonafied combo guard (and a pretty good one too) who we/Joe keeps trying to make a PG. I really wish we had a real PG and could use Stuckey the way Atlanta uses Jamal Crawford.

    I'll take Phoenix all day long over the Pistons' roster.
    Cleveland? ...They're as sucky as us but more ballanced. They also don't have Rip's contract to deal with making it much easier to blow that thing up.

    Other than J-Rich, the Suns roster is very unattractive. Nash may have one or two more solid years, and past that, I wouldn't take any of those guys. Maybe Robin Lopez.
