Pistons The following Jose in Detroit thread - all non-followers count to 3 and back away

Quote:

Jose Calderon is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Cavs.
Calderon was traded to the Pistons on Wednesday and will likely start at point guard with Brandon Knight shifting over to shooting guard. The Pistons finally have a true distributor in Calderon, who should continue to see around 25-30 minutes per game with his new team.

Jan 31 - 8:20 AM

Man... if they're moving Knight over to the SG spot they needed a PG worse than anyone thought.... or they have a tremendous amount of respect for Jose... or both.

Good for him. Too bad he has to debut against Kyrie lol...

agreed, plus they suck and Knight has struggled at times. That and i'm guessing they will try everything they can to re-sign him in the summer. Sucks for him that he went to another shit team, but he'll make them better.

Drummond will probably benefit greatly playing with Jose.

If he develops even a sliver of the chemistry that Jose had with Amir..

They COULD be though.... think about it... they're still just ahead of us in the standings and they've done it all without a REAL PG.

If Jose can get in there, settle things down and provide some stability... while feeding those big guys and the shooters like Singler and Stuckey... they could sneak in. Esp. if Coach Frank finally gets some balls and starts Drummond with Monroe.

Anything is possible. They have some talent, we'll see what happens.

and we done it without a real SF ... Gay over Fields is a much, much bigger upgrade than jose over knight.

AND we get JV and Bargnani back, which despite what some think, will be a plus.

Gay over Fields is definitely a huge upgrade... but Fields wasn't playing the lion's share of the minutes at SF.... AA was.

DET's near the bottom of the league in assists... they don't seem to get a lot of easy baskets... I'd expect that to change.

I'm not surprised at all. Detroit has been gunning Jose for a while, and Jose is experienced enough to make an impact right away.
