A couple days ago, pistonpowered had a link to yet another story about reviving the potential melo-to-nets trade, this one mentioning the pistons as a potential fit (similar to something I posted a couple weeks ago).
this pistons team doesn't have a starting power forward, especially with jonas out, and they don't know who their point guard is. in an effort to solve both of these problems, along with all the other teams problems too:
pistons get: lawson, kmart, gerald henderson, humphries (waived so as to remain at 15 players)
nuggets get: favors, tayshaun, murphy, nazr mohammed
nets get: melo, diaw, stuckey, matt carroll
bobcats get: devin harris, rip
...pistons get the power forward of this year, the point guard of the future, and don't have to pay 2 shooting guards. financial flexibility in the future regardless of any changes to salary cap. probably creates a situation where daye and lawson start, which makes me giddy.
the nuggets would give up lawson but be arguably better this year, really deep up front (to battle the lakers), and have favors to build around after chauncey, tayshaun, and murphy get old and/or leave. still have the competent, if aging, anthony carter to back up chauncey. they would save a few bucks in luxury tax this year, with all kinds of money expiring next summer. also, kmart wants to leave because they didn't offer him a new contract.
the nets are apparently willing to do whatever is necessary to get melo. I don't understand this, but whatever. a backcourt of 2 combo-ish guards (stuckey and terrence williams) might be kind of cool.
bobcats solve their "larry brown 'freaking out' without a PG" problem, and would be willing to take on rip's money because michael jordan still doesn't understand the salary cap.
