I am from Detroit and was watching the sports section on the news and the latest trade rumor is is that Joe Dumars is attempting to get Rasheed Wallace from the Hawks for god knows who. Someone from the bench. Imagine this


C-Ben Wallace
PF-Rasheed Wallace
SF- Tayshaun Prince
SG- Rip Hamilton
PG- Chauncey Billups

Can you say holy shit! :eek:

That is good news but who the hell from the bench is worth Rasheed. I'm still not compeletely giving up on Darko, but watch something stupid happen like we give up Darko and suddenly he's better than Lebron and Carmelo put together. :|

Bench:
Chucky Atkins :roll:
Bob Sura :lol:
Zeljko Rebraca, I thought this guy was going to have a good future until the whole heart thing happened.
Corliss Williamson, this guy can turn it up at times, probably the only guy worth anything on the bench.
Elden Campbell, crap. Was supposed to help out Big Ben on the boards but sucks ass.
Darko- has like 14 points on the whole season :roll:
Mehmet Okur, actually i take it back. Okur is worth something too. Big man has proven he can score and also is one of the few big men that can shoot 3's.

So out of that entire bench the only combination I see worth anything is Corliss and Mehmet. They might put up Darko in there too which I think is a mistake.

Nah. Dumars said tonight on Fox Sports Detroit that he is not going to stride away from his master plan. Which means molding Darko. This move is a move to where the pistons can add a big threat that will be gone to free agency next year (dont quote me on that) and free up cap room to resign Mehmet Okur.

I just heard that also Steve Francis might be on his way here.


C-Ben Wallace
PF-Mehmet Okur
SF- Rip Hamilton
SG- Chauncey Billups
PG- Steve Francis

Prince coming off the bench :drool:


Fu.ck Rasheed I want Francis.

It looks like if there is a trade, so far it would include Chucky Atkins and a 1st round pick.

:wtf: 5 minutes ago Rasheed coming to Detroit was news to me, now you're saying Steve friggin Francais... I wish I still lived in Detroit. If Vegas had sports (other than boxing) this would be the perfect place to live.

Dude i'm just saying. The latest is either Francis or Rasheed. Who would you rather want? And ot who would you rather want but who would definitely be the better fit for the Pistons.

Realize that Atlanta is going to make stupid trades, they want draft picks and cash not talented players.

I think Wallace would be better either way. I believe he's scoring more points and would defenetly be able to help out B. Wallace out on the boards (better than elden campbell). We have the defense down almost to perfection but just flat out suck on offesnse.

Erick Dampier, I guarantee, will be the next Ike Austin. You have one career year, and all of a sudden, everybody wants you. You go to the new team only to suck ass. Just like Ike Austin.

Chauncey Billups = most overrated point guard in the league.

Rasheed would be a much better fit than Francis. Why would they get a turnover prone point guard when Billups is one of the leagues better point guards already? I think Rasheed could really fit in in Detroit.

Chauncey Billups isn't on Steve Francis' level. One of the league's better point guards? :rofl: Says who?

Billups is good but Francis is obviously better

Aye. Until Rasheed proves he's worth the hassle, gimme a playmaker like Franchise any day.

Chauncey Billups is a decent poing guard. He's no better than Andre Miller.

I can understand Dumars wanting to win now, but did we really have to gut our bench and give up a #1 draft pick for Rasheed Wallace (who we'll have for three/four months depending on how far into the playoffs we make it) and a backup point?

More people would re-sign Mehmet Okur than Rasheed. Do they only have enough room for 1 or what? (money wise)
