    Even $6M would be a stretch. Give him the qualifying and Darko's old chair

    +1. Withdraw said offer, play hard Stuck, you will get paid. If you play normal, you will be lucky to make 5.

    Without Stuckey, Among given the compact schedule witch means many more games per week, the pistons are going to have to play Daye a lot of minutes at SG. That means well always have a great 3pt shoter at that position. With stuckey, we'd lose that great shooter, not would add a super penetrator and strong defender and excellent of skills for the sg position. I also think without stuckey, the team has a greater shot at lots of ping pong balls, this year, teams wil be playing all 12 guys on the roster.

    Question: is stuckey a core guy on a cute pistons championship team. If not, don't pay him big bucks. Well be better in the long term. And sucker this season. Hard call.

    I was wondering what you meant by a cute Pistons championship team.

    I just thought Brap had moved to Uruguay and was engulfed in not only the culture but the language...

    I think this is not just local opinion, but throughout the world of basketball. I haven't read any opinion on this that would've said that this offer is not fair or too low, and nobody thinks Stuckey is worth $10 mil

    Can we trust Joe that he's learned not to bid against his own offer?

    If he's raises his offer...then Rascoe will use his powers of wealth and forum ownership against Joe. :)

    This situation reminds me that Joe D has lost his stuff. Afflaolo was, and it still the better of the two, and we let him go, no worries. Stuck can't play PG and he doesn't want to play SG. He can't finish. He can't hit the mid range shot. He doesn't play D. What is Joe D smoking?

    I would disagree on some of the statements. I agree that he struggles at point, but where did you hear that he doesn't want to play SG? He also finishes well enough and draws lots of contact while shooting close to 90% from the free throw line. He's probably best defensive guard on the team at this point. And without him Pistons don't have a single guard over 6'3.

    The Conley deal was last year. The players took a haircut in the new CBA and all the contracts are smaller in both dollar amount and length. So it is a nice try by Stuckey's people to get more money, but it doesn't hold much weight. Also, I think Joe should weight before signing Stuckey to a 5 year deal. We need to see how his style meshes with Brandon Knight. We do not need Stuckey in the way interfering with Knight's development and minutes at the point.

    He reminds me of a basketball version of Tonya Harding. Strong, but not quick or graceful...He's a bull in a china shop. I just don't see how he fits in to the Piston's future......

    Tonya seemed tougher to me, although she had access to one of those collapsible police batons....
