No way Ai will come of the bench for Rip. I think AI will start at PG

If AI goes to Detroit by the end of the season that team will explode... just imagine AI+Wallace=Kaboom :violent-smiley-026:

Unless they can somehow figure out a way to play Rip at the 3, than AI is the starter at the Point, Rip at 2, Prince at 3.

Detroit wont implode from this trade as someone posted. They alway needed a wing scorer and AI is that. I expect increased assist totals from AI, higher percentages and mabey a couple points less is scoring.

What if Prince plays at 1, Iverson at 2, and Hamilton at 3?
Prince usually does take care of the ball and is a good ball handler so why not? Right?

Default Detroit - Denver Trade

The Detroit Pistons have reached a tentative agreement to trade Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess to the Denver Nuggets for Allen Iverson. Neither player was at this morning's shoot-around. Team officials said that more information would be forthcoming later today.

If this is true, there is a good chance Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess will miss the game against Raptors. Good news or bad news?

Prince, at the 1?

No chance.

Iverson is starting at 1, Rip at 2 and Prince at 3. Maxiel and Wallace in the middle. Stuckey can sub in for Rip/AI as Rip/AI can play the 2.

Gotta love this if your a raptor fan (and if you arent, WHY THE HELL ARE U HERE ) as i believe Jose needed therapy for the bad Billups dreams he has at night.

Is there any bad blood between Billups and Detroit? Billups is their best player, I don't understand how AI is going to fill the gap unless is a salary dump for Detroit (AI expiring and Billups still got more 4 years on contract). As I said, Detroit in decline, they are trying to save what they can before going down even more.

Everything being considered, after less than a week, the Raptors are looking pretty well positioned in the East for right now.
Baring inujury to Bosh/Jose,i would have to agree.

Apparently, a radio station in Denver is reporting that McDyess is going to be bought out by the Nugs and will re-sign with the Pistons.

Detroit will be fine.Excellent franchise that will always be competitive and in a few years will be near the top of the East again imo.Especially when Boston starts declining which will probably start next season.

I don't think there is a lot of bad blood between Billups and Pistons managment. I know Dumars wanted a shake-up, and Billups has always said that he would always welcome a trade to his home state of Colorado, so it works out for both teams. Dumars wanted more scoring from his team and AI provides that.

Pistons Iverson traded for Billups/McDyess

http://www.realgm.com/src_wiretap_ar...on_to_pistons/

Wow!

I was more of a supporter of moving Iverson for Kidd, but I think this one make sense too for both teams. I think Detroit wins because of the financial situation, Iverson's a 20 mil expiring while Billups is still on contract for a while. It's been reported McDyess hates Denver so he's either going to be bought out or retire.

Calderon is the best PG in the East!

Raptors = ECF?

Iverson is back in the Eastern conference! Damn!

Iverson is better than Calderon.
Especially when it comes to voters.

So I'm guessing Eric Snow was a figment of my imagination. Hmm....
