I love the enthusiasm. I just don't like Melo
The money will make me puke, but Melo could get us to the second round.
I'd rather have Paul George over Melo. Better defender and teammate.
This isn't even close.
Nor is it even POSSIBLE. While Melo to Detroit is improbable, he will be opting out this summer and become a Free Agent. George will be signing his contract extension before he even hits the market as a restricted free agent.
He did swing and drop a NYK, I think we need him !
If it ain't rough it ain't right. Here's a great test case for attempting to land a covitted FA. Joe has just as good a chance of prying George away from Indiana as almost any other GM in the league. It's worth developing a strategy to make it happen. IMO, Paul George is THAT good and stock is still rising. Pull out all the stops and give it a shot. Start a loud but "unofficial" campaign to bring George to Detroit. ...it doesn't cost you anything if you fail.
I sense a new thread to be appearing soon....
I agree with you that Paul George is a great talent, but if he came to Detroit, wouldn't he just take minutes away from Melo?
We need a poll to decide who to bring here. George, Melo, James, Durant are all viable mentioned options and it's argubly the two lesser talents that have their own threads/campaigns right now.
That kid will sign a 5 year extension contract before Oct 31st AND even if he doesn't.....he's a restricted free agent....NOT happening! Now think about this......We sign Melo....NOW! For 4 years. Melo (and Josh Smith) will come off the books right around the time Monroe and Drummond begin to really hit their stride, George will be looking for his 2nd contract....and THAT's when we nab him!!!!
By that time, Pope will make everyone forget that Paul George exists.
Pope is the new and improved Rodney White!
...a little slam poetry for ya: White fired shots from a drop-top while rolling through DC. Pope will fire shots from beyond the arc while ballin' in the D! White was straight-busted for growing mad amounts of weed. Pope will bust nets and grow into what the Pistons need!
Should have picked Melo Not the Serbian Swatter Fix mistake....too late
***snaps fingers*** Oh contraire, mon frere!
