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.

Default Re: AI for Billups?

Trade scenario:

Detroit gets

AI

Denver gets

Chauncey Billups
Antonio McDyess

This is one of the few ways to make this deal work, cap wise.

This should be within the 25% salary match rule.

The Pistons have to get rid of McDyess, but they clear out playing time for Maxiall, Amir Johnson and Kwame Brown.

But if it were me, I wouldn't do a Billups-AI deal, since Denver benefits from letting AI's contract expire at the end of the season, and Billups is a better fit with Detroit.

i would do this if you guys throw in chieck samb as well. billups can be good for a while longer because his game is centered around shooting, good decision making, and fundamentals. mcdyess gives us the other big man we desperately need, and samb is just another young big because we have none.

As far as being a better player, yeah I would agree AI>Billups. But, I don't like AI/Hamilton as much as I like Billups/Hamilton. That trade isn't going to make Detroit any better than what they already are.

Detroits game plan for the year, is a balanced attack, with all the parts being interchangeable...and lots of people playing limited, but important minutes.

Injury will only have limited effect, over 82 games

AI doesn't fit the system in place....and we don't need another guard?

Joe D already turned down A.I. this summer. Why would he change his mind all of a sudden?

Denver will never pull the trigger on this trade. Billups contract is too huge, and his age is only getting older.

Nuggets need a young PG to develop.

Wouldnt it make more sense to ask for Rip instead of Billups? Denver should know that Detroit probably wouldn't do AI for Billups, cause it leaves them empty at the PG, besides Stuckey who isn't that great yet, while having two all-star SGs.

Unless they have a poor record later in the season, I don't expect the Pistons to make a trade of this magnitude.

Billups, JR Smith, Anthony, Martin and Nene looks like a much better team to me.

No, denver is good in the 2 spot, we need someone with size to run the point.

I'm just saying Detroit won't bite on AI for Billups, cause they basically get an All-Star SG when they already have an All-Star SG while giving up an All-Star PG and giving their PG duties to a second-year player.

For Denver, Chauncey would be more ideal, but its Denver thats doing the offers, not Detroit.

Well if AI were to play in Detroit, he would likely be the starting PG, not a SG.

Umm no he won't. If thats the case, then he would probably be the starting PG over Anthony Carter.
