    Default Nuggets trade Allen Iverson to Pistons for Chauncey Billups, McDyess

    Tons of stories here: http://www.insidehoops.com/nba_rumors.shtml

    UPDATE: Trade is now OFFICIAL. Iverson-Billups trade is a done deal.

    If Pistons do this, Dumars is a genius. The way that Stuckey is playing, Billups is expandable. If they are looking to get rid of Billups, now is the time. His contract is for 4 more years and AI is expiring this season. Dumars would save a lot of money, considering he has to resign Prince and Sheed

    Makes no sense for denver. there in a cost cutting mode now. Iverson has a 20 million dollar contract coming off the books at seasons end. so why would they give that up for a multi year deal? they'll either let AI walk at seasons end and save money or they'll want the same sort of contract.noway there taking on a multi year deal. unless its billups and prince in it.

    Detroit needs to look to the future and with so many young players on the team they can start looking sooner rather than later. Dumars has been a genius GM for putting this team together and keeping them together, but the real test will be if he can rebuild them. If they have the chance to unload Billups remaining 4 years for a season with AI, then I don't think that is a bad deal. Dumars just seems so loyal though.

    Anyone know how the rookies did in the preseason or if they even made the team?

    Because of Iverson's lucrative contract ($20.8 million) it would take more than Billups ($11 million), though.

    if its a straight up trade then its good for detroit, other than that, no thanks.

    It would be a boon for theoretical statistical player models. According to most of them I read Billups is a top 10 player, AI is...not, and Stuckey is complete trash. So you'd expect Detroit to be much, much worse and Denver to be quite a bit better. Of course, Billups could begin to severely decline at any time since he is getting up there in age and Stuckey could suddenly improve because he is young.

    Why would we trade for AI? If Detroit is going to trade Chauncey it's going to be because they want to insert Rodney Stuckey into the starting lineup. I'm happy with the team right now the way it is, the coaching change is already paying off. 50 some points last night from the bench, you would've never seen that from Sanders in a non blowout game.

    I'm not saying Billups is a better player than AI but he fits in the Pistons system much better than AI. The Pistons need a true low post scorer this season to become the champion instead of trading for a scoring first guard like AI. It's not like when you play NBA 2k9 that better players bring better records. Trust me, AI will turn the Pistons into a first round team or even out of the play-off contest.
