Detroit signs former Piston Ronald Dupree to a two year deal.
Ronald Dupree agreed to a two-year contract with the Detroit Pistons on Monday, adding depth to one of his former teams.The small forward averaged 2.2 points and 7.4 minutes for the Minnesota Timberwolves last year.Detroit traded Dupree to the Timberwolves just before the 2005 season for a second-round pick to clear a roster spot for rookie guard Alex Acker.Dupree averaged 3.2 points in 47 games two years ago for the Pistons after signing a two-year contract with the team.The 6-foot-7 forward scored 6.2 points in 19 minutes per game as a rookie with Chicago in the 2003-04 season after almost making Detroit’s team as an undrafted free agent. He played in 47 games, starting eight, for the Bulls. Via SI
that would imply that joe d is going to trade delfino
I agree, I always liked Dupree but I don’t think he is better than Delfino.
He’s not better than Delfino.
Dupe always had the right attitude – await your chance then play your tail off. I keep hearing Delfino is all that, but he always has that kind of “I deserve more than this” look on his face when he comes in. I really won’t miss him if that’s the case.
Creates a little bit of extra contracts though doesn’t this??
I hope there is one more move here with Davis and Delfino…
get rid of dale davis or kato
thats cool i like dupree
I dont think we are getting rid of delfino.. dupree will just be third behind tayshaun and delfino I think
With this new addition of bringing back Dupree this only means that they are going to have Flip Murray back-up Billups full time. Hunter is not going to play a lot of mins.. because the pistons will save him for the very end the season and the start of the playoffs. The pistons will have a eight to nine man rotation…(Murray,Delfino,Dice,Hunter, and Dupree)…OFF THE BENCH….
With the Players they have, they can really change there style of play and be a more up-tempo team. They have the right pieces to run up and down the court..(DELFINO,MURRAY,DUPREE,JOHNSON,MAXIELL,PRINCE,BILLUPS,RIP)…THE WAY THE LEAGUE IS THE PISTONS HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CHANGE THEIR STYLE OF PLAY IF THEY WANT TO WIN ANOTHER CHAMPIONSHIP….
Delfino i think will stay just dupree will be his back up
remmeber when super dupe got 20 gainst the bucks and were all on like crazy dunks.
thats why i like him
You have to look at the bigger picture. Just for the simple fact that they can use Dupree and Davis as trade bait to get another player or another first round draft pick…
Ronald Dupree is an exellent ball player he didnt get a lot of playing time but when he did he gave 100%
This is exactly what Joe D said he was going to do (focus on a new bench) by getting flip murray and Dupree. GENIUS just watch.
yes i agree he is a Genius I will never doubt him ever. In Joe I trust.
I also think its cool that when lindsay retires he will stay with the organzation as maybe an assitant to joe
lol “former”, he only left for a couple months!
Cool, hes back. Rip! Stop pickin on super-dupe! lol just playin
Man I just don’t know about that pickup? I think that Dumars should go after Spreewell.
Spreewell???? What are you smoking!
Bonzi Wells — if the pistons can get him that would be a steal !!! Sheed — make it happen, talk 2 your boy……
Plan and simple?
Let’s hear it for Heat fan, well articulated as always…
Why don’t you “gone” to a Heat site?
Whew, what an onslaught of lower case profanity. Honestly, did your computers shift key fall off? I can’t beleieve a Heat fan “gone” and went off on Pat’s Hair piece; seems like you’re the mad one.
Thanks again for your additions to the website, we all need a good “faggot cock sucking bitch” rant every now and then!
I hope the Pistons make one more move here…
Yeah obviously that heat fan needs to get laid!
I always thought Dupree was better than Delfino. He’s a better defender and works hard when he’s on the floor. Delfino is probably a better shooter though.
This is what the roster looks like right now
6 Alex Acker (FA)- NBDL?
1 Chauncey Billups
Will Blalock -NBDL?
13 Kelvin Cato-?
34 Dale Davis
20 Carlos Delfino-?
00 Tony Delk (FA)-?
12 Ronald Dupree
32 Richard Hamilton
10 Lindsey Hunter
25 Amir Johnson -NBDL?
54 Jason Maxiell
24 Antonio McDyess
22 Tayshaun Prince
36 Rasheed Wallace
Bonzi Wells- ?
Piston fans – come on get with it Cato is a free agent, he’s not on the roster and will not even get an offer from the Pistons (or anyone for that matter)!! He keeps showing up in these posts. Don’t you rememeber the point of the Darko trade – free of cap space for Ben?
nick im with u on that for 100%
