I think thats it for the pistons. The free agents were all insanely over-priced, the leftovers are, well, leftovers. For us to get Cousins we would have to lose all of our young wings, and we should have done that, but it's too late now. We made the best of a 7 pick, Monroe will be a nice low post set up man, a vlade to someone's webber, not a game changing big as prescribed. Tayshaun and Rip's trade value has gone from experienced wing players to championship mercenaries, they only make sense going to teams in "WIN-NOW" mode. I can't imagine a trade where a team realistically says "Yes you can have our talented big, we need rip/tay's experience on the wing" and I used to love imagining those trades. The only thing we can hope for is that the team gets better by learning to play as a team, with each individual giving their all night in and night out while the coach designs a system that gets the most of their abilities. ... What ... It could happen!
