Now dont get me wrong, Iverson on that team wont make them a contender, in fact they may take a step back...but at least its a change...the Pistons have had the same core basically that disappointed for four straight seasons...


but to be honest, I think Nuggets will improve more than Detroit will improve...and I lvoe AI. But the only team AI can actually go to and make better would be trash teams like OKC or bobcats, any other team with a bunch of talent already, AI going there does nothing.

because Billups had declined quick these past few years, his contract and they need a legit scorer to take over a game and A.I. gives them that.. good deal for Detriot & TERRIBLE deal for Denver, they can kiss there small playoff hopes goodbye.

okay, i see that... and i also see that getting contracts off the books also could be a motivation.

i just have to digest this!!!!

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.

Looks like I got this right, if Steven Smith is right on ESPN.

They finally get a legitimate offensive scorer. Dont get me wrong, Rip and Billups are nice, but they havnt had that one guy who can be an unstoppable force on offense. Plus, Billups has 4 years remaining on his deal, they get cap relief next season. If anyone was to be dealt, it was him bc of the longevity in his contract. Out of the starting 5, he was the one who carried the most value who was also expendable. Billups has been gassing the last few years in the playoffs as well. A shake up is needed in Detroit. They are looking at Stucky to eventually take the reins and with Billups out, it will happen sooner rather than later

The Nuggets just got older overnight. They are locked into Chauncey's contract for another 4 years, and Dice is ancient.

I like it in the sense AI is a big time scorer and thats what we have lacked for a while. Chauncey has overstayed his welcome, he has been too inconsistant and in the playoffs hasn't performed.

Works well for both sides I think as Denver need a PG. One thing I don't like is trading Dice.

The denver management are arsehole...

Last year AI single handedly won denver the game that put them into the playoffs.golden state...
denver achieved their 50 wins ever since 1980's with AI the top scorer, assister & stealer on the team..

I guess denver management dont appreciate him..and view him selfish player unfortunately.

Nene-Kmart, two players spend time injured.. when they play they get outrebounded by gasol-bynum or boozer-okur..all this AI fault??


Disappointed to see team changing again...
