Either way, i'd stay away from him in fantasy leagues unless you're in a really deep league.
Ahh...Flip....he's not gonna do anything until he does something. This is a hibernating deep sleeper that isnt worth talking about. If for some reason he comes out averaging that 15 - 20 pts he did at the end of the 03-04 season, well, good for him, pick him up eventually if you need some PTS and STLS. Don't look at what he did in CLE as what he'll do in DET. Detroit is guard dominated and Billups/Rip play over 35 min/game. Flip-like players thrive in CLE. Look at what Larry Hughes did last year. Look at what Jeff McIinnis did 2 years ago. And then look what McInnis did in NJ? His numers went way down because the squad didn't need production from the 2G. Similar with Flip going to DET. Don't look to draft Flip unless you got a 20+ team fantasy league.
