Default Pistons 2017 Off Season Moves

Since there isn't all that much to look forward to this season and there's starting to be some rumors going around about this summer already I figured I would start a new thread.

I've been reading a lot lately that the Nets are very interested in KCP. Everyone says they're going to offer a max deal to him. I guess the decent thing about him being restricted is we will get the chance to see if this is true or not and it's not just a random bidding war. It also kinda shows the state of SG's in the NBA. There's just not a lot of great ones right now. He'd definitely put up better numbers in New Jersey since his usage rate would likely go way up. I just wonder if the Pistons are going to match.

Detroit has put themselves in a really bad spot in the draft again. If they were going to not match on KCP there isn't much out there to fill his shoes in the draft where they are at. Maybe Luke Kennard would be around. At least he's a very good 3 point shooter which is something the Pistons have needed for a while. Outside of that there's probably going to be a lot of big guys around at that point. Maybe TJ Leaf or Harry Giles falls. They could look at Bam Adebayo. Some mocks have us taking SG Donovan Mitchell out of Louisville. I really don't think this draft is as deep as some are saying. I like the top guys and outside of that it's a gamble. I would take that gamble on Giles. He'd be right there in the lottery if it wasn't for injuries. He's young and may get past it though. The thing with taking a big is we just drafted Ellenson at about the same area last year.... Unless they trade Harris, Morris, or Leurer I can't see any PT opening up next season. I don't see them trading Morris or Leurer. Both are on cap friendly contracts.

Perhaps we should have taken Booker last year, instead of Stanley, as he would be a decent replacement if we let KCP walk ........ *sigh

I think a lot of teams would have taken Booker over their picks.... but yeah he's definitely the better player. Although Detroit would have just sat him and never developed him so it's tough to say how good he would have ended up.

I wonder if it's almost a better idea to let a team like the Nets have KCP for the max and then we make an offer for a guy like Tim Hardaway Jr. He's been amazing since about January. He can hit the outside shot and get 15-20 ppg. He's shown that he can grab a few rebounds and pass when asked to. I feel like he's a kind of under the radar guy. He's restricted, but I would imagine we could make an offer that Atlanta wouldn't match and save some money on KCP in the deal. Obviously KCP is the better defender. If he takes a max offer from NJ he'll basically be saying he never wants to win though. Not that Detroit is headed in the right direction, but they're still better off than the Nets.

Apparently Detroit is going to match any offer for KCP.

The top FA's under 25


And that's why KCP is getting paid. I did mention Hardaway Jr. too. I like his game (offensively).

I think we need to keep KCP - I believe he is a top 5 SG in this league and is just about to enter the best 5 years of his career. Defense and stretching the floor are the two things he can be elite at, which are the most valuable commodities in today's league...

I think at this point I'd much rather have KCP than Reggie if we had to make a choice of who to keep because of their contracts. Before the season I wouldn't have said that. KCP is slowly coming along. It takes SG's so long to develop most of the time. Once he's in his prime he has a chance to be very good. Hopefully he keeps working after he gets paid. That's the one thing that scares me. Some of these guys take a step back after their contract year.
