fair price.

jeffb 07-30-2013 05:30 PM

Ugly Roster imo. What a mess! They may get 8th, but wow. Long term they're a disaster.

The Pistons will send Brandon Knight to the Bucks as part of the package for Jennings, league sources tell Y! Sports.

Detroit will also send center Slava Kravtsov and forward Khris Middleton to Bucks as part of sign-and-trade for Jennings, sources tell Y!

I wonder who's going to Milwaukee....

Oh... wait..

Clearly a win-now move. Surprised they give up on Knight so soon, he's shown quite a bit in terms of toughness and defense. But clearly the GM is feeling fire. Short term, they are replacing a chucker with a more productive chucker and winning a few more games.

woodchuck 07-30-2013 05:38 PM

I don't know what to make of Milwaukee, though. It's a nice move, if they were rebuilding and targeting the draft next year. But they've invested all that money in mediocre vets, Mayo, Zaza, Ridnour, Delfino. I think they expect to make the playoffs. And they'll probably end up with the no.10 or no.12 pick, right outside the top prospects and outside the playoffs.

This is lining up nicely for Detroit to come looking to us for a shooting guard in return for Monroe!

I doubt they'll give up Monroe for Fields...

They just took on a lot of salary. I doubt they want DD.

Detroit fans are not pleased. :lol:

If this deal goes through Joe has officially messed up a good start to a promising season. Now we have Smith who is more of a PF playing SF and a chucker, and Jennings who is also a chucker. I am royally pissed! Why not send out Stuckey or CV? What in heavenís carnation is wrong with Joe? He better be getting a 1st if Knight is going! Or, turn this **** of a move into Rondo by February! I was willing to accept Smith at SF and see how things worked out but this is a move I cannot agree with. Whatís next? Jennings and Stuckey or CV to Boston for Rondo and some albatross salaries by February?

Man, Dumars I know you're not that dumb to trade freaking Knight!..

The deal is done! JOE SHOULD BE FIRED!!!

What the f#*k man!!. This has to be a dream...

Man this dude Dumars has lost his mind!.. What the hell is he thinking, why the hell did he trade Knight...
Quote:

this is sad...

Our only hope with this deal is that Joe has something better in the works... Yuck!

*waiting patiently for the Fire Dumars thread bump*

Knight could have been our combo guard off the bench...The kid plays defense and works hard, why the heck would we trade him instead of Stuckey...

This will not work out well. Bad trade. Hate it.

KoolAid 07-30-2013 06:11 PM

Hah. But IMO this moves them ahead of us.

Long term they're screwed to the max, but next year they're better.


Maybe they're interested in Gay + extras for Monroe and expirings? More outside shooting for them which they need.

MBailey85 07-30-2013 06:11 PM

Jennings is better than Knight and he comes at a fair price. Good move by Dumars,they hate it now but will like it later. Billups is there too and will be the perfect mentor for Jennings.

I'd give them Derozan for Monroe otherwise they can go fuck themselves. And i'm going to assume Jennings would love to play with Demar... lol

Jennings
Derozan
Smith
Monroe
Drummond

:tv_happy:

I agree totally. 8mil a year is a pretty good price for Jennings. I never even thought of the Billups aspect. He'll definitely put BJ in his place if he does something stupid.

You're on coke if you think Demar will net Monroe.



On a side note, look for Drummond to lead the league in rebounds from all those long 2s.

Monroe is at least as good as gay, saving like 13 million a year is a bonus. How can you not like it?!?!

Ross+2016 1st(NYK) might be enough to snatch up Monroe. DeRozan is too expensive for the Pistons and he's still one the Raps better players.
