    Could it be? The recent uptick in CV usage, moving two rookies to clear roster spots. Could it be a trade is brewing?

    So much for getting them involved in the next few Piston games...Maybe Joe didn't want them hanging out in NY this weekend????..Oh well at least they can get some burn there and somebody recognizes they got enough talent for some A league PT over some of our B league vets...

    Send Krava and Drummond to the Mad Antz too and broadcast their games instead of the Pistons.

    I agree. I'd tune in for that and maybe DVR the other.

    WOOT!!! I think NBDL games stream for free. I've watched Macklin for free via the archives. I'm excited!

    Gores should consider playing the Antz games on the jumbotron during the games at the Palace. That should reel in an additional 1,000 fans or so.

    Middleton getting moved down is fine, English is not. He provided much needed 3pt shooting and was one of our better perimeter defenders.

    This is a poor decision by whomever made it.

    After swapping Gordon for expiring Maggette and drafting what seemed like good players all round, rotations and team decisions like this are just taking 2 steps back.
    This makes me furious.

    Ah just read its only for 3 games. Not as upset, but still would rather English on Pistons court than in Fort Wayne.

    Send Bynum there!

    How would that move be related to a trade? Those guys still hold 2 of the 15 Piston contracts whether they are in Auburn Hills, Fort Wayne, or Hoboken.

    I've lived in Auburn Hills, and Fort Wayne. Not sure I would like to live in Hoboken. :-)

    Those cities have all changed a lot since the Great Depression, though, Woody.

    Ah, so even though they're in NBDL, they still count against our roster spots? As in, we can't send someone to NBDL and sign a FA. Is that correct?

    These guys are being sent to the D-League to get some experience, I get that - they need some experience so they can develop.
    THEY SHOULD BE GETTING THAT EXPERIENCE PLAYING AGAINST NBA COMPETITION WITH THE
    FREAKING PISTONS!!! ...dammit!

    Maggette & Teen Wolf should be totally out of the rotation.
    Between Stuckey, Tay and Maggette; Lawrence should be able to carve out 10 minutes per game for each of these guys.
    The minute that one of them starts out-playing the guy that they're replacing, DOUBLE their minutes.

    WWPD = What would Popovich do?
