“According to one Eastern Conference executive, the Pistons will take calls on Wallace. One team mentioned as a potential destination is Dallas.
“That’s a ‘Mark Cuban move,’ ” said an Eastern Conference executive. “Cuban would take Rasheed, no question. It would be bold, but he knows he’s got to do something to spark his team.”
Cuban tried that last season when he acquired Jason Kidd, but ended up making a mistake by giving the Nets Devin Harris.
The Mavs don’t appear to have enough to get Wallace. And the Pistons would like to use Wallace’s money – along with Iverson’s – to create enough cap space to make a run at LeBron James and/or Chris Bosh in two summers.
But it’s hard to believe that Dumars will sit still as the losses mount and Detroit slides in the standings. Wallace and Iverson haven’t been a good fit. In their recent eight-game stretch, the Pistons lost four times to teams with losing marks. Then again, no one has meshed with Iverson since the Pistons traded Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess to Denver last month.”
It’s something to watch but my guess is that it’s long shot. I doubt Dumars would trade Sheed unless the offer is right, especially since his 13 million dollar contract comes off of the books at the end of this season. But then again who would have thought Iverson would be wearing red white and blue right now?
Keep your eyes open.
