I don't kno the big UFA but I kno there'll b some players with an option to opt out of their contracts after this season: lewis, billups, G.wallace, Jamison, Dirk, Carter, also David West, Diaw, Josh Howard, Hinrich are nearing the end of their rookie contracts

thanks. I wouldn't hold out much hope for those nearing the end of rookie contracts. however, maybe billups will be ready to move on.

I don't kno, he wuz speakin kinda negatively about wallace goin to the bulls, so maybe he has some loyalty or somthing, but if they're just a regular .500 team next year, that'll probably be more motivation 4 him..... but they don't have any PG projects they can like build around or tutor, everyone's in their prime, so it'd b a big blow if he left.

Ofcourse he was speaking negatively about Wallace going to the Bulls because he knows they'll never be the same without him. Forget about Pistons being the Finals for a long time.

What about some of the analysts that say that Mohammed isn't quite as good on D, but has a solid inside game, combined w/ Flip Murray's scoring, then DET can pick up right where they left off.

As the only team in the NBA with a 5 decade run of championship excellence, we are always looking at the future because, unlike every other team, we have a tradition to maintain.

They wont be able to pick up the slack of defense. Mohammed's gonna start. Murray wont get more than 15 minutes.

Plenty cause we still have Brian Grants huge ass contract and then pretty much every player signed after the Shaq trade was signed so that theyre contracts would be up by the 07 offseason.

$5mil tops b/c right now I think we're like $20 mil above the cap it's just that Grant doesn't count toward luxury tax.
