Looks like Joe Dumars is really trying to right the ship as far as dead weight is concerned. Reports have it that he’s in talks with the Raptors that could bring Rudy Gay to Detroit for Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva.
“The Pistons have offered the Raptors the expiring contracts of Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva in an attempt to acquire Gay, league sources told ESPN.com.”
If this actually pans out this could be like 15 Christmases come early. Set aside the fact that Detroit lands Rudy Gay, who in my opinion is a better option than Josh Smith, they get to dump Charlie Villanueva and Rodney Stuckey.
As little as I think of the contributions that Charlie V brought to the team I think a lot worse of Stuckey who clearly has personality issues and was forced upon Pistons fans as the next Chauncey Billups when he was no more than erratic 2 guard with a diva attitude.
I know you’re saying to yourself why would Toronto want to give up Gay for the two stooges? Because both Charlie V and Rodney Stuckey’s contracts are on their last year which means that they come off the cap for Toronto next season. Also Rudy Gay has two years and $37 million left on his contract.
If Dumars gets this done, he’ll get some faith back from many who doubt him.
