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.
