    Sheed playing for the Magic? How will they swing that financially? They’re already flirting with the luxury tax as it is…

    I think Sheed to SA would be even more scary. Or what about Sheed to Cleveland?

    For our sake, I want Sheed to go to Magic. He will be happy shooting 3s and it’s one more obstacle for the Cavs to get to the final; on more reason he will not resign.

    Lets just hope we don’t waste money on boozer…

    We should just tank the next season for a top5 pick. Many be that’s why JoeD left Curry (God I hope thats the only reason)

    Yelling at the coach and then cutting him off completely is really not what I’m looking for in a locker room leader, and team captain. I also don’t think that Curry falling on the sword is the answer either. As much as I dislike Curry (and I really, really do) this problem is squarely Rips fault, and if can’t man up to it, there is a whole league of players looking to take his place. I mean, what do the Pistons have to lose, they are already rebuilding, what’s one more spot?

    The fact that Hamilton and Curry didn’t get along was pretty well known at the end of the season. The real question is why these stories are reappearing now. A few possibilities:

    1) JD wants to trade Hamilton, is floating these stories to lessen fan reaction when they trade away their top scorer.

    2) Rip’s agent thinks Detroit is serious about signing Ben Gordon, and is revisiting the Iverson experience to convince JD to either not go after Gordon or to trade Rip.

    Thoughts?

    I would like to see sheed in a pistons uniform this coming season with a smaller role, less minutes but just as effective.. give him a 2yr contract n offer him a coaching position..Stay in the D n we’ll get that ship right back

    Now that Charlie V is a FA, I see our lineup already:

    Stuck/Bynum
    Rip/AA/Washington
    Tay/Daye/Jerebko
    CV/Maxiell/Summers
    Okur/KBrown

    Maybe not a championship contender, but
    exciting nonetheless.

    my ONLY worry about losing sheed is who is going to guard shaq and d howard? kwame? right now hes the only center we have! sheed could always play those two straight up, thats y we could always beat the magic! im really worried joe u better get okur or chandler in here.

    ditto, but maybe just 1 yr. and he come off bench, no 3 pointers either. o wait that could never happen so he will be gone.

    how do you get Amare and Chandler if you don’t give up anything? like the lineup though.

    I think there is something to what your saying. IMO Dumars is riding the wrong horse, in stuckey. He is good but I don’t see near the potential in him of which Dumars and all the homers speak.

    the Bucks didn’t make an offer to Villanueva, we should go after him for a good price, he’d fit in nice
