    Compensating for Dre's weaknesses has compromised our team in other areas.

    Once you start bargaining on the ingredients, you're cooking a different meal.

    Stanley has some major work to do and he has the athleticism, plus mental makeup, to make a solid contribution in the years ahead. He will eventually get it; but he will have to get well-beyond his body type to play as a 2 guard. For the latter (and beyond) position, perhaps a third part source will have to work closely with him. No reason, with his youth, that he couldn't turn himself into another version of Paul Millsap (6-8, 247, drafted 47 by Utah). But can the historic position of this organization, develop anyone from within? Can SVG?

    Exactly! And you need the President of Basketball Operations, along with the GM, to recognize this.
    Does this mean I don't like Stan as the coach? No, but he has to let go at times. And the Pistons are not a good learning organization.

    I think they tried to move Dre and (to the disappointment of his fans) found few partners willing to talk.

    I understand the narrow sense this is true, but I think we now take for granted the resurrection that Gores and SVG staged over the last 3 years.

    Our problems today are First World NBA problems. 3 years ago, we were living in a failed state.

    How hard do you think they tried to move Dre?

    Not hard enough, although I sympathize with their problem. You want to sell high, I don't think his value is particularly high right now.

    Looks like this to me. It hasn't been high all year.
    Summer trades are a better medium when you can combine players where talent, value and placement come into being.
