    How bad must Stuckey feel, to know that goal number 2 for Joe this summer is to send him packing and nobody wants him... he's come along way since he was the franchise untouchable player.

    We'll likely sign both 2nd round picks if last year is a starting point... thats another 1.5 million off the cap. so probably a 5-6 million dollar player assuming no trades.

    Maybe 5 years ago, but now.......not so much.

    Even though King Roscoe says, "No former Pistons", KGreg says, "Hogwash!" The guy can shot, has a decent handle and can play some solid defense.

    I really wrestle with that. I'd love to Bring Bynum back but Nate has a MUCH better jumper from beyond the arc, but they're both essentially the same player. But with Will we know what we're getting.

    Do you have a better suggestion? This team needs a PG, another shooter and veteran leadership. If we're keeping Siva I don't think we need to bring Will back, that's why a guy like Chauncey is so ideal for this role, plus he can shoot the 3 and make ft's.
    Delfino can straight up ball and shoot, and if you can bring Daye backing a minimum contract- why not do it?

    I don't see Delfino doing anything for us that Middleton can't, and he's cheaper..... Chauncey I can be convinced to take a chance on though for his leadership but I would be worried he'd take over the locker room, and that would be a mistake at this point.... the kids need to own the team now.

    Ideally Middleton should do what Delfino does, ideally Singler should do what Delfino does......but that's the point DELFINO DOES IT. It's not a hope or a wish, it's a fact that he can actually 'do what he do'

    I think Chauncey would know his role and execute it brilliantly as he transitions into the front office.

    I don't see any scenario where the Pistons don't have Stuckey and Villanueva on the roster to start the season. Why would Joe D/Gores either amnesty or buyout these guys only to fall below the 85% minimum team minimum salary? Assuming the salary cap is around $58million, the minimum team salary would be approximately $49million. Even after the Josh Smith signing, the Pistons team roster is only at about $50million. If we amnesty or buyout these players, the Pistons would fall below the team minimum.

    Imagine this conversation:
    Joe D: Boss, Charlie V is bad. Real bad. We need to amnesty him.
    Gores: He sure is a Bot, Joe. How much does it cost to dump his butt?
    Joe D: Well, we'd need to pay him $8.5million to play for somebody else. Then we would also need to spend another $7.5million to the rest of the team because we'd be below the team minimum salary.
    Gores: So, it would cost us $16million to amnesty Charlie, so that he could play for somebody else. Doesn't Josh Smith only cost $14million next year.
    Joe D: Maybe Charlie V isn't that bad after all.

    If they ONLY look at the monetary issues, and neglect the team chemistry, they will surely repeat their mediocrity.......

    Gores: hey Joe...why are we below .500 again. We did after all save a few dollars.
    JD: I don't know boss, maybe that guy at PF who preaches team chemistry has something....

    Anyone else in the NBA not a former Piston. There aren't many good former Pistons floating around these days.

    Bynum is a tough guy, but needs a change (maybe Chicago). Seeing Korie Lucious play today makes me believe he can find a spot on this team. Just seems to make things happen around him, unlike Burke or Siva that have a hard time reacting to all that other quickness around them.

    Please yes. Take a long look at this offense.
    Just between you and me. JD should try a sneak attack and obtain Dwight Buycks (OKC) out of France. A sweet looking 6-3 PG. They are out there.

    I don't feel that Rudy Gay is a good fit.
