Sorry bud but if you make a thread about a team and list its depth chart, you should know who plays on the team. Especially their best player.

Calderon is underrated as a QB at the point guard position.
Detroit gets an upgrade to their team adding him.

I obviously know who Monroe is and that he played for Detroit, it was an honest mistake, nothing more. How about you actually focus on the thread topic or just bail out? It seems a bit pointless to lock into a mistake in the OP and act like a douche about it no?

Will the Pistons trade Knight/Stuckey for a good SG if they resign Jose? I said a while back they had a beast core going forward to.

Would be stupid to trade Knight who actually has played good ball. I'd trade Stuckey for a SF or some depth.

Yeah I agree but one has to go and imo they could get a better SG/SF for Knight rather than Stuckey. But still they should trade Stuckey first.

Stuckey is done in Detroit IMO. I agree Knight will bring in a better SG/SF but it's better to trade Stuckey for a solid one, then go for a very good one in free agency. A few good SG's and SF's this free agency and Detroit has good cap room right? May as well try to shed Villanova too.

meh, he will re-emerge as a solid player IMO. 12 pts and 5-7 shooting in a starting role. what happens when calderon comes in? Do they start knight at the 2? I guess.

If you're gonna play Knight at the 2, then you may as well trade him. What a waste of time.


Stuckey is a quality 6th man.

Does anybody really want stuckey on their team though?

I can't think of one team who would trade any assets for him.
He's on what, 8-9 mil per. So I guess he could be flipped as an expirer next year at the deadline.

Other than that, he can take his 11 points on 38% to Europe. He could be the next Bo Mcalebb

Plus I guess Stuckey is good insurance in case Calderon doesn't re-sign. Although I don't agree that Knight can't play the 2. I think he looks more natural as a scorer so using him off the ball may benefit him. Not like he's a great playmaker anyways. Calderon will get him a ton of easy shots.

I've been saying this for a while. He's far too small to play SG in the NBA. He's a PG. They can play some small ball for a short amount of time during the game but Knight will be the one getting the minutes there.

I think they'll let Calderon's contract expire and go after a bigger trade or FA's. Since they aren't going to land Howard or CP3, Josh Smith is the only FA that makes any kind of sense. He's not a max contract type of guy like he thinks, and I would hate to over pay him. He's not going to turn the franchise around. Joe D must have another trade in mind.

A dude like Stuckey..I dunno. He's on this stupid contract that's gonna make him a really hard piece to deal. Meanwhile he hasn't really gotten a chance to re-coup the value he originally had going.

Then you think about a 3 man rotation of straight combo guards.

2 of them can shoot - which helps...but still.

They might as well hang onto him until the point the expiring contract becomes an incentive. If they can get a quality 2 or 3 for him - Burks, Ariza whomever - they might as well do it.

I wish Indiana would trade Granger for Stuckey and Jerebko

Calderon
Knight
Granger
Monroe
Drummond
