Re: Dumars and the Pistons
To make matters worse, they likely won't have a pick this summer in the deep draft. They sent a 1st rounder to Charlotte when they dumped Ben Gordon on the Bobcats, and it is only protected 1-8. Dumars has put together a team that is shitty enough to potentially miss the playoffs this year, but good enough that they might fall outside the pick's protected zone. They could have no playoff appearance or pick if they stay in their current position. Although the Bulls will probably drop back when they sell off another asset, the Knicks and Cavs are likely going to be buyers and make a push to move forward. There is a good chance of the Pistons finishing 9th-11th in conference with little to show for their season.
