    How does a team with no wins accumulate less wins?

    I could see Joe, Kahn and whoever is running Sacramento pull off a blockbuster trade where all team involved loses. Logjams getting logjammier, trade kickers boosting salaries and picks going to teams not even involved. If there were a reality show where those guys did nothing but try to pull of trades with each other I'd watch that.

    I love how the trade machine decided that it would result in +1 wins for the Lakers.

    IMO: we hit rock bottom somewhere around 2009.
    The ownership change and some head scratching FA signings by Joe have kept us there.

    We need to finish ourselves off by getting rid of anyone on current roster who is over the age of 25.

    OK folks, here's a real one, in this trade we're essentially trading Brandon Knight for Zac Randolph and Arron Afflalo:
    NBA Trade Machine - ESPN
    And there's legitimate rationale for each team making the trade, 1 team gets a salary dump and avoids a ton of lux tax, another clears a log jam and creates depth at weak positions, and one gets a legit 20/10 center and young "talent".

    Outside of the fact you leave us with Will "get my own" Bynum as our only PG on the roster its a trade I could live with.

    Okay... new goal: Post a trade that increases the Pistons' win total by the greatest amount.

    I got +23: NBA Trade Machine - ESPN

    I'm sending my resume to Tom Gores as we speak.

    Plus you destroyed the competition for an net increase on the Heat of 37 W's. We'd almost be tied with them in the standings after that.

    I think the machine is broken. 30 is the fg% of Russel Westbrick and it's also the avg number of more shots than Durant he fires away each game.

    Looks like Ben Gordon is back to his old self now that he's out of Detroit.

    His points per 36 are leading the Bobcats and are back to his career average after several years of depressed stats with the Pistons.

    Per 36:
    21.7 points (.532 eFG%... 60 bps higher than our closest guard)
    3.6 rebs
    4.2 ast
    0.6 stl
    0.6 blk

    Not sure what we could have done differently as I'm not sure that we had the personnel to showcase him.

    I respectfully disagree. Inline

    JJ is a filler too.

    As for JJ, like I said, I'm not sold on him as a trade piece. He is useful, but not good enough to get us anything special in return.
