Arron Afflalo and Walter Sharpe Traded to Denver


Via Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski:

Detroit traded Arron Afflalo and Walter Sharpe to Denver for a future second-round pick, a move that creates another $1.8 million in salary cap space for the Pistons, a league source said Monday.

The rumor had been floating around for a couple days, but it finally came true today. Afflalo, who was really starting to progress with the Pistons, will re-join former Piston, Chauncey Billups in Denver. This also explains why Walter Sharpe has not been involved in the Pistons first two summer league games in Vegas.

Meanwhile, the extra cap space Detroit receives in return merely gives Joe Dumars a little extra wiggle room with any future potential trades or free agent signings. The Pistons really needed to get rid of a guard, and they did, but it makes you wonder if Richard Hamilton is still legitimate trade bait. The Boozer trade talk still lingers, but the latest rumor did not involve Rip, as it had Tayshaun going to Portland as part of a three-team deal. It will be interesting to see what Joey D has up his sleeve next.
