I agree Rip is the better player in the deal. Chandler fills more of a need. I don't want to trade Rip, but I don't want a team with him and BG on it either. Since BG just got the big deal and can't be traded until December and he's the younger of the two I'm guessing he's the one that stays. I don't think we can get Boozer for Rip, at least not without some creativity and a 3rd team which I haven't thought of how that would work yet. Who knows about Bosh.

frankly, at 4 mil/year and with his size, he is too valuable to the pistons to trade. they couldnt get equal value back (in terms of a big man). and plaisted, I always thought he was a 4 in college, no?

He may have been but he's playing center now. He looks pretty bad in the summer league so if you can't shine there I don't see how he has a chance in the league. We'll probably never see him on the roster.

David Lee could easily play Center if he had to be. Even his NBA player page says forward/center.

He is only 6'9". Like I said before though, at this point I'd seriously consider two really good PF's.

When have the Pistons even cared about size? We haven't had a 7 footer in years, our PG is tall enough to play SG, our SG is tall enough to play SF, our SF has freakishly long arms and can probably play PF, Sheed played Center even though he is a PF, Ben Wallace was also 6'9".

Wallace was a freak of nature at the time. Stuckey is a small SG. Rip is a small SF. If everybody moved over positions they would get crushed. Small ball only works for short spurts in a game. Like I said though, at this point I'm willing to go with two really good PF's. If we can bring in the right guy we'll just need to have times where Charlie is guarding a C.

It looks like Chris Mihm is available too. Wouldn't that be something if we ended up with both of the Lakers old centers from their rebuilding years.... In all honesty though, I did like Mihm's game before his injury. He still could be a good starter for someone if he was able to come back 100% healthy.

All I know is we can sign **** with the money we have, and Kwame is still our starting (and only C) What you see now is pretty much what you get, and that is a hideous starting lineup. I like rip but Dumars has got to trade him just to fill the gaps on the team. And like you I'll just take the best big man we can get for him, PF or C.

All aboard the mediocre train. Is he really the best we can get? And Kwame? God... does Dumars just have a thing against Centers? Won't trade for one, won't draft one, won't pay big money for one. I mean I honestly wouldn't mind at all if we just started Amir at center again, and had him split time with Kwame, and then keep Afflalo.

I would have been fine with Amir too. If we can end up trading for a better PF than I'm fine with it. Here's a list of who's available: Drew Gooden, Joe Smith, Chris Wilcox, Jason Collins, Jarron Collins, Rasho Nesterovic, Juwan Howard and Chris Mihm.

Based on potential I like Wilcox the best. He's listed as a F/C at 6'10". He was a beast in Seattle for a minute. If he was able to play like that he could be a steal. Nonetheless your probably right. Who's the shortest player on that list

shoulda got deandre jordan with one of those 2nd rounders last year. he could come in and compete with Kwame for the starting spot (even as raw as he is).

Kind of off topic, well maybe not with recent posts,


but whats up with Chris Kaman? I'd love to get him on our team. I know he is kind of on the outs with the Clippers.

Come back to Michigan Kaman!

Joe Dumars is whats up. He really doesn't care what the fans want, he is in his own little world where you don't need a center.

SMH…
I have no clue what direction Dumars is going with this team anymore. Definitely not a winning direction…
