Default I Really Like This Rumor

Money shouldn't be an issue for Detroit, not with the salaries of Allen Iverson ($21 million) and Rasheed Wallace ($13.68 million) coming off the books this summer. Detroit also should benefit from a shift in the mind-set of NBA teams, many of which have struggled financially more so than in past years due to the wobbly U.S. economy. We've already seen teams looking to make trades that have nothing to do with improving the product, and everything to do with shedding long-term salaries. New Orleans tried trading Tyson Chandler this year to Oklahoma City as a cost-cutting measure, but Chandler didn't pass the physical and the deal was killed. Look for the Hornets to shop Chandler again this summer. Utah's Paul Millsap will be a restricted free agent and his fellow Jazz teammate Carlos Boozer is expected to opt-out and become a free agent as well. Utah will be hard-pressed to keep both players, along with high-salaried players like ex-Piston Mehmet Okur, Andrei Kirilenko and Deron Williams who collectively will make about $39 million next season. There are many others, including Chicago's Ben Gordon, who will show up on the Pistons' radar this summer as free agent targets. -- Booth Newspapers

I really like the Chandler rumor. I've said they should try to get him for a while. He just seems like a Detroit kind of person. He's a good defender and can score when needed. Look how much the Hornets struggled without him. That shows what he can do for a team. I don't like the Ben Gordon rumor though. Please Joe D, no more under sized gaurds in Detroit who just score, don't play defense, and are over paid.

I'd love to see Chandler in a detroit uniform.
