Grange: Bargnani to Pistons for Hamilton/1st round pick? - false rumour
 
Grange was on the fan today and apparently said he heard some rumblings of this as a possibility.


Thoughts?

Not a good trade

Bargnani beside GM would be a strong frontcourt.

dfunkie1 11-30-2011 08:57 PM

it's very likely that the pistons will have a very low first rounder this upcoming draft. i'd make that gamble.

Nope 2yrs/25.2Mil remaining.

Superjudge 11-30-2011 09:02 PM

hmm... still interesting for a few reasosns...

get er done!

Rip has two years left. Next year is only partially guaranteed to 9 million if he is waived by July.

DanH 11-30-2011 09:04 PM

I would definitely do this, assuming no protection on the pick.

dfunkie1 11-30-2011 09:04 PM

could possibly be used for the amnesty if it is indeed allowed on roster players acquired after the cba is signed.

Hamilton's 2yrs/25Mil >>>>> Bargs remaining 4yrs/42Mil

Man that 1st rounder would be nice to have. 2 first rounders most likely top 10 or better in this draft to build around DD, Davis, and Val?

Would be a gamble but interesting at least. I would bite.

:chickenkneu:

I'm not sure if I want to think about it until it happens. This would be near perfect. We get a much needed wing player and a likely second high pick. And a clean slate for the new coach. I just can't believe the Pistons would shun defense even more than they already have lately.

jeffb 11-30-2011 09:09 PM

Bayless/Calderon
Derozan/Barbosa
Hamilton/Johnson
Davis/Amir
FA/Alabi

interesting...

dfunkie1 11-30-2011 09:09 PM

can you imagine gordon, charlie v, and bargs out on the court together? it'd be like watching the raptors, but funnier 'cause it wouldn't be us!

lmfao :cookie::yeah:

I guess it would be likely to see Gordon or Charlie V used in the amnesty, so maybe they could stomach giving Bargnani a shot.

The Pistons have three main candidates for amnesty.

Onetime Pistons hero Rip Hamilton is on the books for roughly $19 million over the next two seasons. Ben Gordon hasn't lived up to expectations since signing in 2009 and is owed nearly $35 million over the next three seasons.

And then there's Charlie Villanueva, under contract for nearly $23 million over the next three seasons.

But there's something else to consider. I asked a Pistons official during the summer: "Who would get the ax if the amnesty provision is approved?"

He responded: "It depends on who you can trade."

To make it even worse

Bargs, Charlie V, Gordan, Austin Daye

Grange just tweeted that it is not a real rumor - just him fooling around on twitter with a fan.
