    I've went to Mt. Rushmore last summer and just saw Mike Bibby last Saturday and let me tell you he looks nothing like the guys on the side of that mountain!

    Calderon and Bynum are both meeting with the Pistons. They share the same agent.

    The Pistons hamfisted PR department usually promotes anything that is even remotely newsworthy, and so if the Pistons had serious interest in Calderon, you'd expect they would be hyping it.

    I think Calderon already knows everything he needs about Pistons, at this point he is doing his due diligence to see what else is out there.

    Perhaps they know Calderon doesn't want to come back, so they are not hyping so they don't publicly look like got rejected.

    This is quite plausible.

    There is a complication to Calderon coming back. Its like a cap hold of $15 mil or something. Pistons want him but have to look elsewhere unless all the big names fall thru.

    I am not sure I quite follow. If they are able to sign him for $8-9/per year where does $15 come from?

    I love to see Joe looking for big names again, but with capspace he can do that. Lets just hope the combo of Joe, Moe and the huge upside of the last three # 1 picks and the Pope will get someone to come to the palace a lease a locker for a spell.....and contribute to the success

    Rudy Gay kind of intrigues me. If you could smooth out his flaws a little........

    If you're going to add those 2 then it is time to go all in for the backup veteran bigs.

    Kings are offering Iguodala $56 million over 4 years.

    Nuggets offered him $63 million over 5 years.

    Dang. I don't want Iggy for that price. Tony Allen was pretty cheap in the end.

    Well we can all dream can't we? I mean if he pulls that off I would award him executive (fleecer) of the year! All it takes is someone to take the bait.

    Never start with your best offer. You never know, if the Raps plan on tanking out this season to clear capspayce for next year it could happen!
