I'm the biggest Jennings hater out there, and I'm not a fan of this move for DET, but there is a small chance that this could end up working out well for them with Billups and Dumars mentorship. That plus it IS technically an upgrade since Jennings is a better player than Knight, but the fit doesn't look good with a lineup already in dire need for good shooting getting another low efficiency chucker.

The way the team is being built, it really does seem that Dumars is building to eventually trade Monroe for a very good SG or SF, because I dont think you can extend him and continue to start Smith/Monroe in good conscience while a better player is about to emerge and become one of the better players at his position in Drummond, who will soon affect the game more than both of those guys combined.

In conclusion, I don't like the move, it just seems like Dumars is trying to save his own ass by getting name players, but it could work out well if Jennings has a Billupsesque transformation, something all DET fans are now wishing for to avoid the treadmill.

Not sure why so many are on Dumars' ass for this moves. Jennings in undoubtedly talented.... and unlike CV and BG he actually produces on a regular basis and is multi-dimensional. If he can get his head straight he could be a VERY good guard for them.

I like what the Pistons have done this off-season. Their guard play was weak as hell last year. They've addressed that and added some veteran leadership in Billups. A lot is going to hinge on Smith though and how he decides to play the game.
