    If we get a top 8 pick it would be disaster if we trade down. We don't need more bench players, we need starters. It's not the NFL, guys like Stauskas who go around 25th won't be better than Singler.

    So, you're saying that Single is better than Wallace, Gasol, Ginobili, and Parker? That's a bold statement, TaS.

    Stauskas will be better than Harris. I guarantee that.

    I really like Ennis from 'Cuse. He's shaping up to be my steal of the year. Hopefully the new GM has no disillusions about Jennings.

    That's impressive that you can guarantee how a 20-year-old kid will perform for his career based on watching a few games on TV of that kid playing at a completely different level. NBA scouts with 100 times the access and 1000 times the information will readily admit that it is a guessing game. But, you can guarantee results? That is amazing actually.

    Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box because he wants you to feel all warm and toasty inside.

    I like McDermott because he can score a few different ways. He's weak off the dribble, but he's a worker and as a coach's son, apparently has a really high bball IQ.

    Now, I'd sort of expect his sort of game from the Italian league MVP we have riding our bench but for whatever reason the Pistons sign players to the end of the bench and give them very little run. I dunno, maybe Datome is horrible in practice or something, I am just surprised that we haven't seen more from a guy with a jumper on a team that badly needs someone that can hit jumpers.

    Anyways, I will probably be 1000% wrong, we won't get McDermott and he will fail in the NBA on Charlotte or something....

    Dude, I like McBuckets too. He's a much more refined, smarter Jabari Parker.. who's not big/athletic enough to guard good NBA 4's, or athletic enough to guard good NBA 3's. Fortunately, not all starting NBA 3's and 4's are good. He could be a great scoring weapon off the bench to unleash on the 10 sub-par starting 4's, or the 10 sub-par starting 3's that you're going to encounter each season.

    I think Stauskas has more potential, though. This PG from 'Cuse too.

    Isn't Datome shooting like 15% on the year? He isn't just missing, he's missing badly when he shoots.

    Are we sure there wasn't a strike the year he won the MVP and he was the only guy to cross the picket line?

    The sample size is 89 total shots. And he's shooting 35%.

    I don't know what we have in him, but that's the same league Kobe cut his teeth in, and iirc, Ginobili dominated (2x MVP).

    I'm gonna take a pass on Stauskas. Good shooter, which the Pistons need, but he makes Jennings look like an all-world defender.

    For evidence, it's not just me saying it...

    If you're going to be a 3-d player in the pros, you have to provide the d.
