Thanks for posting the update, js12.

As for Aldridge's question re: "why would the Pistons have 2 give up first 2 move Rip?"

Well, because Cleveland would be absorbing RIP's huge salary. The deal would save the Piston's over $35 million dollars, which might be a big deal considering how much money the team has lost the past 2 seasons. They had to drastically reduce ticket prices just to keep people coming to games. Detroit is one of the American cities that has been hit hardest by the poor economic situation since 2008. RIP might be worth something, but, with the new CBA coming, few teams want to touch a SG who is making over $12 mill per and is on the wrong side of 30.
