About all that money they're saving:

As Matt Dery pointed out on Twitter, Dumars was able to dump Nazr Muhammed on Michael Jordan in the past and has now coaxed him into taking Gordon off the Pistons' books. Bobcats new coach Mike Dunlap has stated they needed a shooter and now they have one -- Ben Gordon. Enjoy that, and thank you.

MFMP will have some more on the deal and the potential fallout in a minute. Now, your thoughts.
